Join HMN San Jose in our Annual Swap. This is a fantastic way to find a new use for your gently used clothing, toys, and accessories. Kids grow so fast and, often times, their clothes are barely used. Why buy brand new when you can get like brand new for free? We also welcome men’s and women’s clothing, shoes, and accessories too.
We invite everyone to participate, so tell your friends, family, and anyone who might be in need. We simply ask that you take items that you will use (not sell) and that no items brought is broken, damaged, or not re-useable.
All items that are brought to the swap that are not taken at the end of the evening will be donated to a charity.
This event is a great way to check out Holistic Moms Network and the San Jose Chapter. Meet members, join in the fun, and help us in finding new homes for our gently used things.
We hope to see you there!
