For those who have contemplated cleaning out their closet lately, you're in for a treat. [freespace] Paris is hosting their first clothing swap (troc tes fringues in French) event today. Bring any gently used piece of clothing, and all types of accessories (scarves, bags, inexpensive jewelry, etc.) and allow it to have a second life, while you scan someone else’s closet. No exchange of money should ever take place at [freespace], just of clothing in this case.
Here's how it works: take an item for each one brought, for instance, bring 7, take 7 items. Participants are asked to bring at least 5 or more. There is no limit to the number of items, although don't expect to swap an entire closet. Only for this occasion, it will be limited to garments only.

It is kindly requested NOT to bring undergarments, this includes no lingerie, underwear, bras, socks, also no footwear or pajamas. As a newly opened space, furniture and home accessories donations are always welcomed and kindly accepted. Any un-swapped items will be used by [freespace] for recreational, upcycling purposes unless the participant choses to recuperate their un-swapped items.
