Feb 2015 Swap: Review

I held this year's first swap and I must say it was a roaring success in my books. For me the swap is an opportunity for ladies to come update their closets while also editing out what no longer suit them. Secondary to that is  to meet other ladies that they would not meet if it were not for that event hence a networking opportunity in a relaxed environment that does not have that forced familiarity that we all hate. Thirdly is to have a fun afternoon or evening from their usual hectic schedules.

This swap was an open swap meaning I did not set a limit on the number of items the participants had to bring . That actually worked out to ensure we got a variety of items that made the event a success. The group of ladies that came were mostly new to each other but they had such an open mind and positive attitude that one would have thought they were life long friends. More than that each person was patient as some ladies came much later due to unavoidable circumstances yet it still worked out that each lady left with clothes that they felt were a golden find.

Once the business of the clothes and shoes was done the ladies all settled down to socializing and it turned into an inspiring evening for all those who were present.

The pics just tell a part of the story but I am sure the next swap will be even more interesting :-)
