Let’s Go Shwapping: Donate used clothing in return for in-store savings!

Toronto Mom Now loves to stay on top of the latest and greatest places to shop in Toronto and one neighbourhood booming with new retail destinations is Liberty Village. Our friends at Kathleen’s Closet have teamed up with Liberty Village’s most popular boutique Vocado, to put on an event that gives shopping a greater purpose.

This Wednesday Kathleen is hosting a ‘Shwapping’ event where you can donate your gently loved clothing to get in-store savings on Vocado’s latest summer must-haves like designer sandals, dresses, accessories and more and your donations will be sent to the Scott Mission.

Another great perk to this Shwapping event is chocolate shoe treats made by The Golden Apple Confectionery and as Kathleen puts it: “it will be an evening full of shopping, chocolate shoes and wine, what more could a woman want?” We don’t think there’s much more a busy Toronto mom would want from an evening out without kids.

Shopping with Purpose

The term ‘Shwapping’ comes from the concept of combing traditional shopping with clothing swapping and what better incentive to make room for new editions to your wardrobe than to donate them to a good cause while helping your own budget and the environment.

When: Wednesday June 27, 2012,  5:00-9:00pm

Where: Vocado Liberty Village

RSVP: Kathleen’s Closet Shwapping Event
