We’re Swapping Coasts!

For one week only, anyway. (Please, do you think we’re leaving New England? In the summer?) We’re not going crazy, just hosting our first Left Coast clothing swap — in Hollywood, no doubt, at the North Hollywood Performing Arts Center — thanks to an invitation from the our pal in penny-saving, Julia Scott of BargainBabe and BargainBabeLA. (Oh yes, it will be tres chic. Count on that.)

We’ve got a rock star DJ lined up (the one, the only Andie Cassette) and are talking to our celeb-savvy sustainable style pal (EcoStiletto editrix Rachel Lincoln Sarnoff) about hosting a free and fabulous bar. (Fingers crossed, ladies. Complimentary eco-chic cocktails and free new-to-you designer duds? Does it get any better?)

Mark your calendars for this and more serious awesomeness — bookmark the official Frugal Fe$tival blog for updates and new sponsors, added daily between now and June 19th:

    Hi Melissa,
    Would love to host a swapping event in my hometown of Houston. Can you email any information that would be helpful to me in this endeavor. Lots of friends who are interested. Looking forward to your reply. Thank you so much
