clothing swap + a winnah

As I mentioned earlier, I hosted a clothing swap with friends.  I got the idea from another friend a few years ago when I lived in Baltimore. It's a fun girls' night activity, just tell everyone to go through their closet and pick out some items to give away ((things they no longer wear)). Add some food + drink to make it a party and get swappin'!
The goal wasn't to acquire more, but to give other's a chance to wear clothes that are still in good condition ((some still had tags on them)).  Ever notice how you tend to accumulate clothes that you just don't wear?  This was a chance to give those away guilt-free!  I walked away with three scarves ((because you can't have too many, right?)) and one top.  Most people left with less than they came with; I took three bags of clothing, shoes, purses and more to the Salvation Army afterward!
Have you ever participated in a clothing swap or traded clothes with friends?
