Kid’s and Maternity Clothes Swap

If you missed Nurture's last Naked Baby Party (don't worry, there will be more) you can always check out the kid's and maternity clothing swap hosted by PDXSwap on Sunday, March 8 at St. John's Library from 1:00 - 3:00.

PDXSwap has become a cornerstone in the Portland area for women and families who are looking to swap their wares. Space is limited to 22 folks, so be sure to RSVP by Saturday, February 28th by sending them an email ( with the sizes you will be participating in and the number of guests you are bringing.

Gather up unwanted, outgrown and clean maternity and children's clothes and accessories and bring them to the swap. Your clothes should be in good condition with no rips, tears or stains. Your accessories should be in working order and clean.

There are no minimum requirements for how many items you have to bring or how many you can take, but PDXSwap does ask that you are courteous and generous.

It's okay to bring in different sizes than you want to leave with. And of course, don't forget to bring a bag to carry your treasures home.
