The Swap Sheet: Sept.

September is an EPIC month for The Swapaholics — we’re going Mile High to host our first-ever events in Denver, with back-to-back beauty and kids & maternity swaps at StudioWed on September 23rd and 24th. PLUS, we’re hosting our first-ever Boston Fashion Week “Sip & Swap” on September 30th at the Arts at the Armory with The Second Glass and 90+ Cellars, thanks to generous support from Swap.com (formerly SwapTree).
