T.O The Good Swap

T.O The Good Swap puts on a monthly clothing swap at the Centre for Social Innovation.

This month’s exchange is taking place on March 23rd from 12:00 PM – 2:00 PM.

Bring up to 10 items of preloved clothing, footwear, jewelry, and accessories in good condition and enjoy the swap!

When: March 23rd from 12:00 PM – 2:00 PM
Where: Centre for Social Innovation Annex, 720 Bathurst St

From Here to Wear

From Here to Wear is a fair exchange meaning if you bring five items then you can take five items.

Clothing will go through a quality check if any items are unfit for the swap, it’ll be considered a “mendable” and will not be part of the exchange.

This is a “pay what you can” gathering with tickets available here.

When: March 21st from 2:00 PM – 8:00 PM
Where: Stackt Market, 28 Bathurst St
