This Thursday and Friday, take part in the first ever Fredericton campus Clothing Swap, where you can exchange your gently used clothing for something new to you! This event is for students, staff and faculty from the University of New Brunswick Fredericton, St. Thomas University and New Brunswick Community College. Experience the joys of shopping without the economic and environmental burdens of fast fashion.  

This event will be held in the Student Union Building Ballroom, room 203, on Nov. 21 and 22, 2019. 

  • Nov. 21 - Drop off your clothing items (12 noon - 6 p.m.)
  • Nov. 22 - Pick out clothes that are new to you! (11:30 a.m. - 5 p.m.)

When clothing is dropped off, the number of items and the participant's name will be recorded. At the Clothing Swap, the following day the participants will be welcome to pick out the same number of items that they dropped off. Any items left over at the end of the event will be donated to community charities. 

REMINDERS:

  • Please bring a reusable bag for the event  
  • No damaged clothing (stained, clothing with holes, etc.) 
  • All clothing must be in wearable condition
  • No underwear, bras or lingerie
  • Accessories are welcome (hats, scarves, purses, etc.)
  • Make sure clothes have been washed prior to drop off

Remember, swap don't shop!
