Steampunk Swap Meet- San Jose
September is time for the First Annual San Jose Steampunk Swap-O-Rama-Rama!
Just in time for Halloween Festivities!
So clean out those closets and craft bins, pantries and cubbies of clutter of all those items too useful to throw away but not actually doing you any good JUST NOW and bring them to our place in San Jose for an epic swap meet of awesome stuff....
How it works: You bring your old crafts supplies, costumes, clothes, furniture, books, beads, toys, games, hardware, dishware, footwear, drapes, kitchen implements, tools, yarn, cloth, props and so on that you don't want or don't need any more but can't quite throw away. They need a good home right? Put them in the up-for-grabs pile and then sort through other people's stuff for your own unexpected gems! Take home whatever you want. Anything left over at 5pm will be packed off and donated to Savers, our local non profit thrift store that boasts a craft supplies section.
Note: Disputes will be handled with a quick game of rock-paper-scissors. No money will be collected or allowed at this event.
When: September 22, Drop off stuff from noon - 1. Swap begins at 1pm - 4pm. Pack up left overs from 4 - 5pm. Donation trip to Savers at 5pm.
