Score A Bounty Of Gently-Loved Duds For $20 At Nana's Clothing Swap

IMAG0117-(2)slide
Let's talk about your closet for a minute — is it kinda crowded and crammed? Or is it something more like utter chaos? Unless you're a ruthless wardrobe-editor, you probably have at least a few pieces you never wear. Now, imagine how easy (and fun) it would be to get dressed if you purged the things that are taking up space and replaced them with items you actually love?
On Sunday, Mount Pleasant boutique Nana is giving you the chance to do just that, with their second annual in-store clothing swap. A $20 ticket and a bag of your own discarded duds gets you in — after that, you'll be scoring treasures for free. (Note: Snag a ticket in advance, as they won't be sold at the door.) Freebies include a gift bag with Nana goodies and discounts, and 15% of ticket sales will go to an area charity. Oh, and did we mention the clothes? You'll have a window from 1 p.m. to 2 p.m. to drop off your items so the boutique staff can organize the swap — it kicks off at 4 p.m., so seize those few hours to stroll Mount Pleasant, grab a coffee, and window-shop.

Get back to Nana promptly at 4 p.m. to get the best selection — if you've been to a swap before, you already know that the good stuff goes fast. Bring your own bag, which you can fill to the brim with stylish secondhand clothing from all seasons. If you're a must-try-it-on girl, wear leggings and a cami, since dressing rooms won't be available. $20 to clear out your closet and stock it with a bag full of fun new stuff? We say that's a pretty sweet deal!
When: Sunday, January 22. Drop off clothing between 1 p.m. and 2 p.m. Swap is from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m.
Where: Nana, 3068 Mount Pleasant Street NW; 202-667-6955. Tickets are $20 and must be purchased in advance.
