November Swap Sheet

There’s nothing like heading into the holiday shopping season (and the stressful feeling of affording all. those. gifts.) to get us super psyched up for swapping. Check out our favorites for November, including our own Downtown Crossing Men’s & Women’s Clothing Swap on November 18th and the Start-Up Shwag Swap on November 11th, which we’re co-hosting with Greenhorn Connect as a kick-off to Global Entrepreneurship Week here in Boston. Hope to see you there!

    Do you accept postings? We have a swap planned!

    Bead Swap & Sale:
    Sunday November 14th, 2pm-5pm
    Bring out those beads, tools, wire, findings and jewelry making supplies you are done with. Bring the ones left over from your last project, the ones you bought and forgot about.
    Think of it as a neighborhood yard sale… we will sell some, swap a few with the neighbors, and let things go GUILT FREE!
    Just in time to get moving on those holiday projects…
