When: Thursday, March 30th, 2017, 6:30 – 9:30 pm
Where: Heilandkirche Festsaal (where we have the book fair), Kaiser-Josef- Platz 9, 8010 Graz

We all have clothes, shoes, accessories in our closets that we do not wear. Bring the clothes you do not wear, to the IWA clothes swap and trade your unwanted clothes for clothes you like.

You can bring women’s and children’s clothes (tops, pants, skirts, dresses, sweaters, pjs, …), jackets, shoes and accessories (preferably spring and summer things). Bring a bag (or two) of clean clothing etc. in good order and some finger food or something to drink to join the clothes swap. You can then fill up your bags and take your new clothes home. All clothes etc. left over will be donated to a Caritas Carla shop.

Please RSVP with Bettina Dornhofer or 0316 68 98 20.

Could you help us set up the tables or clean up? Please let Bettina know. Do you have questions? Please contact Bettina.

P.S. If this clothes swap is a success, we will have another one in the fall.
