Gulfport Fresh Market features free clothing swap
Posted June 04, 2012 at 11:45 AM
The Gulfport Tuesday Fresh Market now has a regularly occurring feature. The second Tuesday of each month features a free clothing swap.
On Tuesday (June 12) from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m., participants are invited to bring up to five gently used garments to exchange for vouchers that may be used to select clothing brought in by others. Items may be for women, men or children. Gently used shoes and wardrobe accessories are also accepted. Hangers should be provided for all garments. Vouchers may also be purchased for $3 each.
The swap takes place in the courtyard adjacent to the historic Peninsula Inn at 2937 Beach Blvd. S.
Donations of clothing above the five-garment limit are encouraged and accepted. All additional donations should be contained in bags or boxes. All cash proceeds, donated clothing, and non-selected garments at the end of the swap will be donated to Community Action Stops Abuse (CASA). CASA is a local non-profit organization providing services to survivors of abuse or violence.
In case of rain, the next clothing swap is scheduled for Tuesday, July 10.
