MOPSwap--Important Info!

Swimming in toys your kiddos no longer play with?  Having trouble keeping clothes on those ever-growing kids?  Living on a budget? Looking to try something new and fun?  If you said yes to any of those things then MOPSwap is for you!
I'm sure you have heard that old saying, "One man's trash is another man's treasure."  We are going to put this idea to the test with our first ever MOPSwap on Tuesday, April 15th, during our regular scheduled MOPS meeting.  It will be an opportunity for you to clean out your closets, toy rooms and garages of items that are in clean and gently used condition that you no longer have use for.  Items we are including in this swap are baby, children's and women's clothing and kids toys, games and books. 

If you want to participate, you will need to drop off your items to swap on Monday, April 14th between 6-8pm to room 120 (next door to our regular MOPS room) at Westgate Chapel.  You will receive a ticket for donating items to the swap.  This same number will be used to draw for admittance to the swap the next morning to start "shopping."  After everyone has had the opportunity to shop the swap, anyone who did not bring items to swap but would like to shop can. We will sell the items at garage sale prices.  All the money earned will be used to help pay for our fabulous MOPPETS workers.  At the end of the meeting the remaining items will either be donated to Teen MOPS or sold at the upcoming flea market we are participating in also to cover the cost of MOPPETS workers.  There will also be a bulletin board to pin pictures of large items that can't be brought in for the swap but you think another mom might want. 

I hope you are looking forward to this event as much as I am.  Feel free to contact me if you have any questions about the swap at krustypup@msn.com.
