The Swap Sheet: July 2010

Summer is officially here, and we apologize for the radio silence (read: no June Swap Sheet) while we sweated & sang Katy Perry at the top of our lungs out in LA for our first Hollywood clothing swap. But here in Boston and elsewhere, it’s hot, hot, heatwaves, and, while we hate to say it’s ever too hot to swap…well, it seems too hot to swap.

Never fear, Swapaholics: two awesome swaps are still being held stateside this July, and overseas there are plenty of super cool events both across the pond and Down Under to sate your swap addiction.

(Oh yeah, but be warned: outside the US, they call it “swishing,” not swapping. Swish, swish, swish!)
