Is this a one-for-one swap?
No. All participants must bring at least 8 items to swap. Out of fairness to all, and in order to ensure that everyone is able to take home an ample number of fabulous items, participants may take home a maximum of 20 items.
What does a "family" ticket mean?
Each ticket purchased is valid for ONE swap participant, meaning that one person will receive a wristband, to streamline entry, a swap bag and will have access to the swap room to participate in the swap itself.
Our events are meant to be family events, fun for the whole family. There is no charge for children and/or family members to attend. If you purchase a ticket on our website, please list how many children (if any) you plan to bring, so that we can prepare appropriately.
If I don’t have anything to swap, can I still attend?
If you are pregnant you are welcome to attend even without anything to exchange, although maternity wear is acceptable. You must pay the admission fee and must bring either diapers and/or baby wipes to donate directly to our charity partner. We hope that you will return for our next event and pass items along to the next generation of mommies-to-be!
Why is there an admission fee?
Our admission fee helps us to pay for the cost of producing each event. Thank you for your support!
