Our spring event in Calgary was a huge success — looks like Calgarians can’t get enough of clothes swapping!

Maybe it was our amazing venue this year at the Hotel Arts? Or the wide variety of clothes? Whatever it was, Calgary hit a new record, swapping 3,990 items!

Local boutiques A Vintage AffairEleven:ElevenDiva Direct and Rewind Consigment donated items to the swap, some of which were featured as well in Calgary’s ultimate Spring 2012 Look Book.

Here’s a breakdown of the overall impact of the event:
3,990 garments swapped
1,172 garments given to charities
5,162 garments diverted from landfills
$79,800 saved by swapping!

A HUGE thanks to all of our partners, sponsors, volunteers and swappers who made this happen.

Let’s make it rain clothes again at the next swap!
