Come to our Spring Swap in Logan Square(ish) today! At Elastic Arts on 2830 N Milwaukee right above Friendship restaurant (and a couple of blocks away from the north entrance of the Logan blue line), from 2 to 6 pm.

What are the rules? Bring your best stuff you're sick of! Get whatever you love! That's it! I'll quote Natalia and Kaitlin's swap invite here:

"OMG, it is finally warm out? Syke! It's Chicago.

But who needs an excuse to update their wardrobe? Get ready for the best spring sale of the season: Get one item FREE, and get TEN MORE FREE! 

Bring your gently used previously loved items to swap. Make new gently used previously loved friends.

If you don't have things to bring, COME ANYWAY, because there will be TOO MUCH! 

Some Inspirations: 
+ Remake a swapped sweater into a bikini! 
+ Collect a bunch of partner-less gloves for your puppet show! 
+ Burn the coats and sweaters we wore TOO MUCH this goddamn winter in a ritual pyre!! 
+ Bring books, CDs, kitchen appliances, curtains or other things - but NOT things like your whole hoarded New Yorker collection plz
+ All gender expressions and body sizes welcome!
+ Those jeans definitely make your butt look better than ever!"

See a few shots of their pro swap below (taken by Natalia):

What's better than twirling in a new dress? Twirling in a new FREE dress!

Vintage maven Rose! Long time no see! I'm bummed I missed you! 

An Inception moment with "Selfie Cat", a masterpiece wisely snatched by Natalia.

Thanks for the inspo, girls! And the leftover stuff! I also wanna thank Kyra Termini for inspiring me to organize our Spring Swap as well.
