Swap-O-Rama Rama in Raleigh!

September 5, 11am to 4pm
in the Zanzibar Room at Marbles Kids Museum

Hey Swap fans in Raleigh -- here's your chance to experience a Swap-O-Rama Rama without having to drive to Durham!

As a follow-up to our spring Swap, we're heading over to Raleigh in September to give the folks over there their very own Swap.

If you haven't been to one of these before, it's an amazing, low-cost way to completely overhaul your wardrobe and promote creativity over consumerism.

Just show up at the door with $10 (suggested donation) and any size bag of any type of clothing (men's, women's, children's, shoes, accessories, etc.) and take whatever you like from items that other swappers have brought in.


We’ll have DIY stations for sewing, painting, screenprinting, and embellishing your finds along with other fun activities throughout the day. (We'll be posting more details here as we get everything finalized.)

Our events are part of a national network of Swap-O-Ramas created by artist Wendy Tremayne. You can visit the Swap-o-Rama Rama website for a great overview of the Swap-O-Rama phenomenon and more information about it.

Special thanks to the Singer Sewing Company for providing sewing machines for use at the Swap. Thank you, Singer!!

This was wonderful! Especially the Do-It-Yourself stations w/volunteers to advise and the silk-screening for the t-shirts.

Just wish more people knew about it.

Hope you do another one in Raleigh soon.
