Holy hand-me-downs!

Calling all fashionistas, vintage vixens, cheap chic aficionados and DIY junkies: Swap-O-Rama-Rama―the coolest clothing swap on the planet―is coming to Douglas October 23.

The concept is simple: bring a bag of clean, pre-loved clothing you no longer wear, throw it onto the collective pile, and and dive in to find something new (to you) and fabulous. Take as much or as little as you like―it's all free to a good closet.

If you want to customize your new threads, head over to the sewing machines, paint centres and silk screening stations, where local artists will show you how to modify, repair, embroider, stencil or otherwise embellish.

The Place: David Lam Campus, main atrium
The Time: Saturday, October 23 10am-4pm
The Damage: $2 for students, $4 for non-students, $6 for families

Be there or be bare.
