We've been invited to a few clothes-swap parties lately, and although we couldn't attend, the idea will never really go out of style - bad economy or not. This got us thinking about different kinds of swaps. Similar to a white elephant gift exchange this month, why not host a small holiday party which has a home product gift exchange/swap at its core? Obviously the items would need to be of a reasonable size (no furniture), but things like vases, blankets, pillows, artwork, dishware, even lamps, would be great for gifting and getting. Throw in the stealing element of a white elephant exchange and this could be pretty fun...Any other great party swap ideas for inexpensive holiday gathering?
Let us know if you do this or something similar...we'd love to blog about it. Email chicago(at)apartmenttherapy(dot)com.
