Readers Respond: Tips for Having a Great Swap Party

Responses: 1


At every swap party there are a few items which everyone would like to have. What system did you use at your swap party that kept everything fair and moving smoothly?

Swap Party Tips

I had a great swap party at the beginning of the summer. To encourage people to bring a variety of items other than just clothing, we set up a system where however many items per category a guest brought, is how many they could pull from in the same category. We drew straws to see who would go first, second, etc. for the first round (4 items per round) and reversed it for the second round, then picked straws again for the final round. It was a blast!
