How to participate:
1. BUY your ticket -- space is limited and we may sell out! Don't wait 'til the last minute.
2. BAG your clothes -- download, print and fill out this handy label and attach it to every bag of clean and folded clothing you'd like to swap. (Want to know what not to swap? Click here for some tips, or see our laundering policy below.)
3. DROP OFF your clothes before the event -- click here to see our clothing drop-off locations and hours.
NOTE: If you bring your clothing with you on the day of the event, there is a 20-item limit to avoid lineups and delays.
Laundering policy strictly enforced
As a courtesy to fellow swappers, please wash all clothing items you'd like to swap in hot water and dry on high for a minimum of 20 minutes (or: have them dry cleaned and keep them in the original plastic covering with a knot on the bottom). When the laundering cycles are complete, the clean laundry should be placed in new, clear garbage bags and sealed. We inspect everything that comes in and reserve the right to reject any item or bag of clothing that does NOT appear to comply with our policy.
Can't come to the event but want to support our cause with some donated clothing? Download this label, print/fill it out, attach it to each bag of clothing and drop off your clothing here.
Let's beat our 2009 record of nearly 4,000 garments. Sharing is good!

We're The SWAP Team, a nonprofit social enterprise based in Montreal, Canada run by volunteers. Pioneers of the clothing swap trend, our popular event Take Off Your Clothes has excited audiences since 2007. Our many chapters have hosted events in Montreal, Toronto, Calgary, Ottawa, Boston, MA, Winnipeg and New York City.
You might spot us in fashion magazines Clin d'Oeil, Loulou, Mlle and Zink Magazine or in news outlets CBC-TV, Radio-Canada, CBC-Radio, Montreal Gazette, Calgary Herald, Ottawa Citizen, The Globe and Mail, National Post and many others.
To date, we've swapped over 46,000 garments, donated over 48,000 garments to charities and diverted a whopping 94,000 garments from landfills. Best of all, we've helped people save a million dollars simply by swapping instead of shopping!
Help us spread the word: SHARING IS GOOD!
