I’ve been out to this quarterly swap shop twice now and been amazed both times at the great stuff I found for my family, and thankful for a place to pass along my no longer needed stuff to someone else who can enjoy it. A free exchange of goods — brilliant!
When: December 9th* and 10th **
*Donation Drop off is Friday, Dec 9thfrom 10am-7pm
**Swapping is Saturday, Dec 10thfrom 9am –1pm
What is a Christmas Swap Shop? It is an event where moms swap out things they no longer need with things they do. While the main focus of the Christmas swap is TOYSfor all ages, you can also swap gently used clothing, shoes, and books. If you wouldn’t be ashamed to give to someone you know, we’ll accept it. Items are for swap, not for sale.
Who:The event is hosted by Authentic Moms, a local Christian mom’s group, whose desire is to follow 1 John 3:16-18 and love with actions and truth, not just words and speech. The event is FREE and open to ALL!

Where:The Elburn Community Center Gym, 525 N. Main Street, Elburn, IL
If you are in need and do not have items to swap, please come anyway and be blessed with God’s provision. All items not swapped will be donated to charity.
This is an amazing opportunity that I heard about kind of late in the game last time around. It is coming again in two weeks, so no excuses! You’ve got extra stuff, grown out of stuff, unneeded stuff to pass on to another family. And, you need bigger stuff, new stuff, different stuff for the new season, growing kids, and yourself. This is the event for you!
It’s the Back to
School Moms’ Swap Shop!

In case you are wondering — yes, this is the real deal. This is a great volunteer run quarterly event to help us manage our homes and our finances better. You donate what you don’t need on Friday. They organize it and Saturday everyone is welcome to come pick out new stuff. I walked out with a few bags of new-to-us clothes for my whole family last time. I cannot tell you what a blessing this was. So, take advantage of this easy way to bless others and be blessed yourself!
