(XENIA, OH)—The Greene Community Health Foundation’s 3rd annual Fashion Swap ‘N Shop is scheduled for Saturday, October 22nd, 2011 from 11 a.m. – 2 p.m. at the Schindler Banquet Center in Xenia.
The Fashion Swap ‘N Shop is just that…a chance for women to come together to “swap” clothing and “shop” with a variety of businesses, just in time for the holidays. Clothing swaps are becoming more and more popular as Americans from every tax bracket are cutting back how much they spend on clothing in local retail shops. And with the focus on living “greener”, it’s a great way to recycle unwanted fashion items from outfits to accessories, such as jewelry, purses and shoes.
Women are invited to bring up to 5 gently-used, upscale and consignment-worthy clothing items of all sizes, including scarves, shoes, hats and jewelry to swap with other women. The event, featuring a luncheon, fashion show and raffle, also boasts over 30 different women’s home-based businesses including Pampered Chef, Tastefully Simple, Soul Purpose, Dove Chocolate Discoveries, Gem City Fung Shui, Tomboy Tools, Scentsy, Willow House, PartyLite, Mary Kay Cosmetics, Silpada, Beau & Pearl, and many more. Goody bags filled with various items will be provided to each guest, courtesy of Key Bank. Jim Bucher of WDTN-TV will be the guest emcee for the event.
Proceeds from this event will benefit the Clinic Cupboard housed at the Greene County Combined Health District in Xenia. This cupboard contains basic over-the-counter medical supplies, baby necessities and personal products for GCCHD clients in need throughout Greene County. All remaining clothing from the swap will be donated to Community Action Partnership of Greene County.
Reservations will be accepted by phone and email until Friday, October 21 at 4pm and are $30.00 per person or $25.00 per person if reserving 4 or more women together. The event is sponsored by Hagler Orthodontics, The Greene, WDTN-TV, Mini University, Inc., Beavercreek Pediatric Dentistry, Key Bank, MVP Video Creations, IHS Pharmacy & Wellness, Evergreen Children’s Center, Tiffany Jewelers and Lori’s Loft Upscale Consignment Boutique.
