Bring items day of exchange to Philipstown.info on Main Street
It’s time to clean out closets to swap gently used clothing at the third Philipstown Women’s Clothing Exchange. Gather items you no longer use — clean and without damage — and take home new items at no cost.
The clothing exchange will be held from 2 to 4 p.m. on Sunday, Oct. 26, at 69 Main St., Cold Spring (Philipstown.info/The Paper offices). Women are invited to bring gently used clothing, shoes, and accessories, enjoy a glass of wine and some chocolate, and go home with almost-new, pre-worn items.
Recycle your wardrobe and let go of clothes that no longer fit your figure or routine. The Philipstown Women’s Clothing Exchange, a concept imported to Philipstown from Alaska by Kate Vikstrom, graphic designer and layout editor of Philipstown.info/The Paper, has been embraced by her colleague Michele Gedney, advertising director, and supported by other members of the staff and community.
Items may be dropped off between 1 and 2 p.m. on Oct. 26. Volunteers are welcome at 1 p.m. to help set up and organize. The exchange begins at 2 p.m.
Remaining items may be left for donation to charity.
