Give-and-Take Clothing Social Weekend: October 8-9th, Braddock, PA

 

 

 

 

 

 

Please join us at Braddock’s UnSmoke Gallery, 1137 Braddock Avenue, October 8-9th for a weekend long pop-up clothing social. If you’re interested in thrifting, repurposing or contributing clothes to the local community, please come and check us out. Over the weekend we will host:

  • A clothing exchange where everything costs $1. Clothing comes from you, the public. All sizes. All genders. All seasons.          
  • A drop-off for your clothing donations. Looking to clear out your closet or make a contribution to your community? Your clothes make the exchange possible. So bring your clean, gently worn stuff to us. For a list of what we’re able to accept, please see our donation page.
  • A mending circle where we can help you fix or change clothes you bring from home or score at the exchange. We’ll have comfy couches, sewing machines, and most importantly,  mentors to help you do your thing.

Thrift. Donate. Mend. Or just hang out. The idea is for you stop by and be part of the mix. As a special treat, we’ll have the outdoor pizza oven up and going on Saturday from 3-5pm.

Would you be interested in contributing your skills? We’d love the help. We need sewing mentors; brave souls to make sense of all the donations; and all around ground troops to help us run the show. We have lots of opportunities. In thanks, we hope you’ll find some clothes you like at the social and fill up a bag for free.

Hours: UnSmoke Gallery, 1137 Braddock Avenue, Braddock
Oct 8   Saturday 1-6pm
Oct 9   Sunday 1-6pm

Please contact us if you have questions or want to volunteer. You can also email us directly at giveandtakepgh@gmail.com

A portion of the clothing social’s profits will be donated to support the The UnSmoke Gallery’s ongoing renovation and programming efforts.
