Due to a personal emergency the may swap is being canceled at the last minute, with many apologies.  This was to be the last swap, so unfortunately I am unable to host future swaps, but will certainly see some of you around town at other swaps!

Ah, Portland, where everyone here loves sunshine more than anything else.  So true. 

I think it's fair to say everyone also loves free stuff (not free crap, mind you, free-good-quality-sweet-score type of stuff).  And who doesn't love free food?

If this is you then please don't miss the MAY re-use-o-rama.  THIS IS THE FINAL TRY FOLKS.  So PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE, help make this a success.

By popular request- an accessory swap.  If it fits into this category BRING IT!!!  Whether male or female, come one come all!
Think: shoes, purses, scarves, ties, cuff links, jewelry, hair decorations, hats, YOU KNOW, ACCESSORIES!

Held Saturday May 28th from 11am to noon.  Quick and dirty.  You will get a food ticket good for a free slice of pizza at The Mississippi Pub- where the event will be held in the music room- 3552 N. Mississippi Ave.

APRIL!!! haven't forgot you!

My big swap idea for April was to be a garden theme, and it seemed so well-timed, so fitting, and exciting!  Alas, I was not the only one who had this plan.

There will be NO SWAP held at the Mississippi Pizza Pub this month.  Due to irregular turnout, and a well-loved idea, I would love to endorse an already planned swap- the plant swap. 

Please look here for more details!

Due to popular request, there will be an accessory swap (men's and women's) in May.   More details to come!

ALSO, please spread the word about swapping to your friends and ask them to follow my blog!  Thanks.  Also, look for more swap info later!  Thanks for reusing!

Okay, the official count for RSVP'd swappers tomorrow is 20 SOOO that means there will be a few folks, but be sure to try and bring a friend.  Hopefully some folks will come as a result of the flyer, and hopefully some portion of the 26 maybes will come too!
Remember anything that goes unclaimed goes to the community warehouse- helping needy families, so everybody wins!
Looking forward to the swap tomorrow!

Re-using is the thing to do

OR get started by re-using kitchen goods!

A few notes on the re-use-o-rama community swap event happening THIS SATURDAY FEBRUARY 26th!!!

Please arrive between 11:30 and 12 with kitchen items (dishes, linens, food storage, pots and pans, ETC) that are in excellent usable condition.  Eat free pizza between 11:30 and 12:00.  At 12 swapping begins!  Unload some great stuff that you simply don't need and pick up a few things you do need.

ALSO you should know that any leftover/unclaimed items will be donated to Community Warehouse for low income families and folks trying to get back on their feet.

Like the last swap, this is a win-win for everyone.

SIDE NOTE:  The re-use-o-rama will continue the last Saturday of each month, but the start time will likely change ever so slightly to accommodate additional events at the Mississippi Pizza Pub.  Keep your eye out for the official time for the March swap- theme to be announced.  ALSO, if there is any theme you would like to see at a swap, please feel free to comment.  Ideas are always welcome.

And thanks again for re-using!

And also...

This event will be happening the last Saturday of every month- same time (11:30-2), same place (The Mississippi Pizza Pub), but a new theme each month!  To recap, this month the theme is kitchen... dishes, vases, linens, cookware, etc.  anything useful that you aren't using that is just taking up space in your kitchen!!!

feel free to comment or email with any questions:

keep in mind, this is also a good opportunity for rounding out camping dish sets too!
