No More Safety Pins

August 6, 2021 @ 5:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Shopping scenario: “Frazzled mama has no time for hangers, tags and safety pins. She participates in “No More Safety Pins” by bringing 50 excellent quality items and paying $25 on a “drop off date.” She trades in the 50 items to receive 50 new items on the shopping weekend. If she wants 20 more items, she pays in another $25. Frazzled mama’s friend comes with her without trading any items, so she pays $25 for every 20 items she selects.”

$25 to participate. There is no limitation on how many items you can bring to trade. Bring 20 items, trade for 20 items. Bring 100 items, trade for 100 items.

Don’t want to trade? No worries! Contribute $25 per every 20 items.

Due to “abuse” of the system in the past, no item counts can be given to a friend or family member.
