LOGAN SQUARE — The Dill Pickle Food Co-Op is hosting a community clothing swap Saturday afternoon.
Neighbors are welcome to stop by the co-op noon-5 p.m. Saturday at 2746 N. Milwaukee Ave. with up to five articles of clothing or accessories, which they can swap out with whatever they find from the co-op’s vintage clothing rack, according to a news release.
The event is in partnership with the Logan Square Chamber of Commerce, Monarch Thrift and Vintage Thrills. Patrons can enjoy a featured wine tasting after they thrift and swap.
The co-op’s first clothing swap comes during New York Fashion Week, “to make a statement about fast fashion and its impact on the environment,” according to a news release. Proceeds will be donated to Hermosa Mutual Aid.
“In a time of fast-fashion hurting our environment and many thrift stores increasing their prices thus impacting people who really rely on thrifting, spaces like the clothing swap are essential,” Mireya E. Fouché, co-executive director of Monarch Thrift Shop, said.
