Celebrate World Swap Day with the DC Goodwill Fashionista

Event Date: 
Saturday, January 21, 2012 - 10:30am to 2:00pm
RSVP Required

We're celebrating World Swap Day on January 21, 2012. Join the DC Goodwill Fashionista at our Arlington Goodwill store location as we swap women's clothing, shoes and accessories. You'll have a chance to mix and mingle with other savvy Goodwill shoppers and spread a little "swaplove."

We'll be offering $1 raffle tickets for some great prizes:  Two Goodwill gift certificates, free admission to a future swap event by our friend DewdropDC, and an entire Rock Band set! The funds from raffle ticket sales will go directly to Goodwill of Greater Washington's job training and support programs.

Our World Swap Day fun will proceed as follows:

10:30—11:30 a.m.:
Arrive at Goodwill's second-floor space (Goodwill's Arlington Career Center), check in, and drop off at least five items to be swapped.

11:30 a.m.—noon:
Meet your fellow Goodwill shoppers, have a snack, enter the raffle, and get ready to swap! (We'll give you a reusable tote bag to gather your goodies.) 

Noon—1 p.m.:
Swap! Grab as many items as you can fit into your tote bag. Share amazing finds with other swappers.

2 p.m.:
When we wrap up, any clothing left behind will be donated to Goodwill of Greater Washington just downstairs!

A few tips from the Fashionista:

-Our second-floor swap space, known as Goodwill's Arlington Career Campus, is accessible by elevator.

-Please bring only what you can easily carry, and only bring items that you would give to a friend.

-DO BRING: Tops, pants, skirts, dresses, shoes, coats, scarves, bags, and costume jewelry!

-PLEASE DO NOT BRING: Swimsuits, undergarments, summer clothing, sweats, men's or children's clothes.

-Parking is available at this Goodwill location, but it's more fun if you carpool with a bunch of friends—and save a few spaces for your fellow swappers.


-For the public transit fashionista, don't fear! Here are two options to get to the Swap zone:

-Take the Orange Line Metro to Clarendon, and take Arlington Transit bus 41 toward Columbia Pike.
In about 10 minutes, you'll arrive right in front of the Goodwill store.

-Take the Orange Line Metro to Ballston, and take Metro Bus 10B toward Hunting Towers.
In about 5 minutes, you'll arrive right in front of the Goodwill store.
