(This event is only visible to members of the Boston Babies! Clothing Swaps FB group. Please invite friends to join the group and then they can see the event and RSVP. www.babyclothingswaps.com is the link to share. Thanks for spreading the word!)
Have clothes that no longer fit? Toys and gear your little one has outgrown? Bring them to “hand down” to other parents! Clothing newborn to 3T, gear (bottles, pump parts, breast pads) and maternity clothing is welcome.
If you have something larger to pass along, list it in the Facebook event in advance so you have a “confirmed” taker. Any items remaining will be donated to Cradles to Crayons Massachusetts.
You are encouraged to bring your baby and partners are welcomed. There will be a babysitter available to keep your little one company while you browse.
Are you waiting for the arrival of your little one? Expectant parents are encouraged to join us. Lots of newborn outfits for you to take home.
To cover group costs, we request a $5-$20 (sliding scale) fee per family. Cash is preferred (and quicker), we also accept Venmo, PayPal, and Facebook Pay.
To encourage participation, we waive this fee for anyone donating a bag of clothing 18 months – 3T. Clothing and items will be organized by size/type – and are free for the taking.
Where we meet:
We will be alternating venues each month. This Swap will be in Jamaica Plain at Showa Institute. Next month, we will be at Old West Church by Charles/MGH.
Showa Institute is located near Larz Anderson at 420 Pond Street, in JP. The campus is set back from the road, but you will see a sign for both “International Campus Boston” and “British International School of Boston” from Pond Street itself.
We moved to this JP location to have access to a large empty parking lot. When you enter campus and go through the gate, take an immediate right, towards “Parking Lot A”. Park in any space, and there are stairs leading up to the main entrance. Should you need an accessible space, there is limited parking just outside the entrance. To access that area, drive straight through Parking Lot A, and at the other end, take a LEFT and drive up the hill. There will be spaces on the right.
We’ll be posting information about additional parking options on the wall of the event.
The entrance to the building is a glass area, with the American, British and Japanese flags flying outside. Please enter and follow signs to the event. Campus security will ask that visitors wear name badges for the event.
Bringing snacks for your kiddo? Or to share?
Please no nuts, peanuts or sesame seeds.
Save the Date:
Next Swap Saturday, October 20 at Old West Church by Charles/ MGH from 10:30am-12noon. (This one will be up to 5T)
