Is this a one-for-one swap?
No. All participants must bring at least EIGHT (8) items to swap. Out of fairness to all, and in order to ensure that everyone is able to take home an ample number of fabulous items, participants may take home a maximum of TWENTY (20) items.
What does a "family" ticket mean?
Each ticket purchased is valid for ONE swap participant, meaning that one person will receive a wristband, to streamline entry, a swap bag and will have access to the swap room to participate in the swap itself.
Little Swappies events are meant to be family events, fun for the whole family. There is no charge for children and/or family members to attend. If you purchase a ticket on our website, please list how many children (if any) you plan to bring, so that we can prepare appropriately.
What is a "premier" ticket?
In addition to access to the swap, each Premier Ticket holder will receive 2 vouchers redeemable for the participant's choice of brand NEW pieces from our kids clothing designer partner's collection. These tickets are limited in number. Premier tickets are not being offered for the May 2nd event.
Can I take items for other people?
No. Please only take items your family needs NOW. Leave everything else for those who can use it right away. At the next swap, you can take more items and hopefully bring back the items that you no longer need. This is about sharing with others in our community. Most importantly, “hoarding” and “aggressive” swapping will NOT be tolerated, and offenders will be asked to leave the event immediately.
If I don’t have anything to swap, can I still attend?
If you are pregnant you are welcome to attend even without anything to exchange, although maternity wear is acceptable. You must pay the admission fee and must bring either diapers and/or baby wipes to donate directly to our charity partner. We hope that you will return for our next event and pass items along to the next generation of mommies-to-be!
Do you accept recalled items?
We request that you do NOT bring recalled items, however we do not have the manpower to check every item that is brought to this event. PLEASE check the following website when you get home to make sure that none of the items that you have brought home have been recalled: http://www.recalls.gov/.
Why is there an admission fee?
Our admission fee helps us to pay for the cost of producing each event. Any extra revenue that we receive from an event is put towards making the next event bigger and better. Thank you for your support!
How do I Register?
You may register by purchasing tickets at www.littleswappies.com. Those who pre-register will receive a confirmation email. Ticket sales are limited, however if the event does not sell out in pre-registration, tickets may be purchased at the event.
Do you give refunds?
We do not give refunds for tickets purchased in advance, however we will do our best to transfer your ticket to a future event. We do not give refunds to any event attendees.
Where do all the Unclaimed Items go?
All unclaimed items will be donated directly to our event charity partner, Room to Grow: www.roomtogrow.org.
