Hello Hello Everyone!
It is with great excitement that I introduce myself to you as the new Retail Store Manager.
I have been working outreach events for the past year and am thrilled to continue supporting this incredible creative re-use center.
We have a packed schedule ahead of us this month including Beaver Madness and the Swap-O-Rama-Rama. Just to entice you with some more details, the Scrap Exchange is
featuring a "Beaver Aesthetics" show this month at our Art Gallery! The opening
is this Friday, May 15th from 6-9pm at our Green Gallery. Imagine fur meets lovely ladies and beaver fashions straight from the pageant cat walk.
Next up: Swap-O-Rama-Rama, Saturday May 16th from 11-4 pm at the Durham Armory (220 Foster St).
Don't miss this incredible multi-generational friendly event that encourages thrift, design and FaSHION!! all at once!
Well, actually if you do there IS another one in Raleigh at Marbles, September 5th from 11-4pm (201 E. Hargett St.)
Swap-O-Rama-Rama is a GIANT Clothing swap hosted each year by the Scrap Exchange!
The suggested donation is $10 because once clothes are sorted, one can trade to your heart's desire. And, then.. once you have found your must needed accessory you can go to one our Workshop rooms to sew, tailor and even SCREEN PRINT a design on your new "outfit".
Throughout the day there will be fashion SHOWCASES of each artist's designs (all are welcome!) catwalk, anyone?
Hope to see you there!
Alexis and the amazing SCrap-tastic crew
