If you're tired of your clothes but too eco-minded to shop for new ones, stop by the Give Two Take One clothing swap event hosted by Academy of Art University on Saturday, April 17th. AAU is teaming up with St. Vincent de Paul Society for a very fashionable event where you get as good as you give! Drop by the New Montgomery Gallery between 11am and 4pm with your almost perfect condition clothing, shoes, jewelry and accessories. For every two items donated you'll receive a voucher for one item to choose for yourself. Once you're out of vouchers, you can purchase any items left for cash value. All remaining donations will go to St. Vincent de Paul's. With a Beauty Bar to freshen up your weary face after sorting through clothes and jazz provided by The Sebastian Parker Trio, I'd say your Saturday's sorted.
