My dear Jenny has been totally kicking ASS putting together the next Score! Swap, which will take place:
Nov 21st from 1-7pm at 3rd Ward.
What is Score! you ask?
Score! is a pop-up swap — a roving event series that invites New Yorkers to clear out their closets and score new treasure.
No two Score! events are alike. Some take place at indie venues, waterfront parks, artist studios, lofts, or bars. Some have a theme: Vintage Score!, Halloween Score!, “stuff my ex left over at my apartment” Score!, etc. But the formula stays the same: Good music, good drinks, good people, free stuff.
And how does Score! work you ask?
Attendees bring their records, clothes, accessories, housewares, art supplies, books & DVDs to the donation table by the entrance. Volunteers sort and distribute these items to various Score! departments – Music, Apparel & Accessories, Art Supplies, Housewares, Books & Media, Random Gems / Miscellany – each hosted by different individuals and organizations. Attendees have the opportunity to browse each department and take whatever they like. Everything is free, but custom Score! tote bags are for sale ($5) if attendees find more things than they can carry.
Attendees can also enjoy music (courtesy of local DJs), drinks will be available at the bar, and street fashion bloggers will be on-hand to photograph stylish outfits.
After the event, all left-over items are collected by Rock and Wrap It Up –- an anti-poverty “think tank” that distributes donations to worthy non-profits throughout the city.
This swap will be especially special as proceeds from your $3 entry will support City Harvest! So bring your old Blondie records, impulse sample sale buys, penny loafers, Jane Fonda workout videos, harmonica chord progression manuals, etc…and score some new treasures! Find a holiday gift for your mom, a smashing scarf for your friend, or a Queen Latifah cassette tape for your own personal collection. All items are free, and all remaining goods go to charity.
