Better late than never- Join us!

This Sunday, March 29th from 2-7 p.m. there is a Recessionista Shop n Swap in Cincinatti. I personally find this too good to pass up and am loading up my car with friends and making the trek. See some friends and fellow bloggers? Meet new people? Come home with new things which I did not pay for? I'm in! If you are interested read the following. Sorry for the short notice. Hope to see you there. Feel free to contact me if you have questions about the process.

Please separate jewelry items into plastic baggies. Shoes will be accepted. Only if stylish/new/gently worn. Bring shoes in their boxes if possible.
3. No fighting over clothes! Please respect all the other swappers.
4. Dressing area will be provided.
5. You may want to bring a tote bag to take home all your “new to you” items from the clothing swap!
6. You will receive "Swap Money" based on the value of the items you bring, so the more you bring the more you get to swap. The "Swap Money" is only valid at the 2009 Recessionista Shop 'n' Swap event. The "Swap Money" is only valid in the "Swap" portion of this event (i.e., not accepted in the game portion or at vendor booths in the "Swap" portion of the event).
