Swag Swap and Shop Event - May 6, 2022

Clothing Swap


You're invited to join us on Friday, May 6th from 7:00pm-9:00pm at the Designed For Joy Studio, 517 West Cabarrus Street. 

Textile production contributes more to climate change than international aviation and shipping combined.

Let's make a change and have fun doing good along the way!

The Swag Shop and Shop event welcomes clothing, accessories, and home goods of all shapes, styles, and sizes (perhaps not the kitchen sink, but you get the idea.) 

Enjoy light bites, sips, a photo-booth PLUS an exclusive shopping experience at Designed For Joy Studios
  • Drop items you wish to swap and/or donate starting 5/2
  • Take 10% off your DFJ purchase if dropped by 5/4
