Does this sound like a good idea - a holiday clothing exchange party?

•Invite all your girlfriends to come over for a holiday clothing exchange party. Ask everyone to bring at least half a dozen articles of clothing and/or costume jewelry, hats, and scarves that are in good shape but they don't want anymore. Spread the items out on your bed and all over your bedroom. Serve hot tea or cider and cookies or scones while you and your friends try on each other's clothes and pick out a few pieces they'd like to have. At the end of the party, everyone leaves with some "new" old clothes. Any clothes left over that no one wants get donated to a local charity.

  • I attended one of these w/ my friends.. she did jewelry, bags, and shirts. We ran into huge size issues.. some girls didnt exchange any clothes because everyone was different sizes, and some girls who were the same size as others didnt like their things so it made it a little awkward at times, lol! but good thing we added jewelry & bags because no matter your size, you could exchange something! It was a fun night in w/ the girls w/o spending bunches of money. have fun!!

  • I love that idea. It can be adapted in so many different ways, for different occasions. But you might have to watch out for clothing sizes. You want to have something for everyone.
