Too lazy to deal with the mess that a home clothing swap usually results in? If you are in the New York Area, hit up the Score! pop-up swap on Saturday, November 21st 2009. Hosted by Bust, Flavorpill, & MeanRed supported byGirlie Girl Army,L Magazine, Hearty Magazine, and Yelp.com.
Bring your old Blondie records, impulse sample sale buys, your ex’s distortion pedal, Jane Fonda workout videos, etc…and score some new treasures over at 3rd Ward in Brooklyn at a massive free exchange! Find a holiday gift for your mom, a smashing scarf for your friend, and a Queen Latifah cassette tape for your own personal collection. It’s like a brilliant, entirely eco (cuz there is nothing GREENER than swapping!) department store where everything is free ninety nine! Style experts from Nylon Magazine, librarians from the Desk Set, and party people from Showpaper will be on hand to help you find the good stuff. A chance to glam up your wardrobe AND an excuse to clean our your apartment? Brilliant! Event proceeds go to food rescue organization City Harvest and all left-over items are collected by Rock and Wrap It Up.

HOW SCORE! WORKS
Attendees bring their records, clothes, accessories, housewares, art supplies, books & DVDs to the donation table by the entrance. Volunteers sort and distribute these items to various Score! departments – Music, Apparel & Accessories, Art Supplies, Housewares, Books & Media, Random Gems / Miscellany – each hosted by different individuals and organizations. Attendees have the opportunity to browse each department and take whatever they like. Everything is free, but custom Score! tote bags are for sale ($5) if attendees find more things than they can carry. Attendees can also enjoy music (courtesy of local DJs), drinks will be available at the bar, and street fashion bloggers will be on-hand to photograph stylish outfits. After the event, all left-over items are collected by Rock and Wrap It Up — an anti-poverty “think tank” that distributes donations to worthy non-profits throughout the city.
