Letter to the editor: Nature dampens clothing swap

A Clothing Swap Flop!

Well, not really. This year we collected some really great stuff from costumes to jeans, sweaters to workout gear, sneakers, handbags, and plenty of scarves. But then mother nature had other plans for Saturday, March 23, and unloaded over a foot of fast-falling snow.

We had food and seltzer but not enough people to shop the racks and tables.

Special thanks to a handful of volunteers, American Flatbread, the Congregational Church, IPJ Real Estate, Quimby Country, Vermont Bookshop, Sparrow Art Supply, the Stone Mill and Haymaker Bun Co for contributing to the event.

We collected some donations at the door for Atria Collective (formerly WomenSafe) but we can do better in better weather.

So, be on the lookout this spring for our “Take 2” on the Clothing Swap.

Apologies to all who were looking forward to picking up a few new gems. Also, we cannot take any more donations at this time as we have very limited storage.
