How many times have you looked at those certain pairs of fashionable shoes, or that "perfect" dress in your closet, that you never seem to wear? You keep telling yourself that you need to sell it or give it away, but it continues to sit in your closet, untouched.
Guess what - now there is a fun and eco-friendly option with a twist. Give + Take is a boutique in Southern California, owned by Dora Copperthite. The twist is, you don't need money when you are shopping in this boutique. All it takes is a $20 monthly membership fee, and you can swap as much as you want. It all works with a point system. When you bring in clothes/accessories to swap, you are awarded points based on current value. You can then use your points to "shop" in the boutique.
What a great idea! Not only is swapping a brilliant idea for your closet and budget, it is an innovative way to reduce/reuse/recycle. How fun to have a boutique available to you, where you can shop for a new outfit by swapping pieces from your own closet!
Kudos to Dora Copperthite and Give + Take for such a genius (or shall I say greenius) idea!
