New Cash Free Shopping Concept: Women Swap Instead of Shop
What if there was a boutique where you could exchange your too-skinny skinny jeans for a barely-used Marc Jacobs handbag—without spending a dime?
At the newly opened LA boutique, Give + Take, a girl can do just that. Give + Take is the first of its kind “swap boutique,” introducing a revolutionary, green shopping concept: pay by the month, not per item. A hybrid between informal clothing swaps and a traditional second-hand boutique, women exchange their previously loved designer clothing, shoes and accessories for merchandise in the store—all collected from other women with designer duds to trade.
For $25 - $55.00 (depending on plan you choose) a month, women bring in their previously loved clothing, are awarded points based upon the value (a $200 dress is worth $200 in points), and then can spend those points in the boutique—all at once or over multiple visits. The flat monthly membership fee allows women to exchange as much and as often as they would like without losing the value of their clothing.
Without the threat of losing value, women have incentive to move underused clothing out of the backs of their closets and into usable circulation once again—recycling and diminishing the need for new purchases. In fact, because this shopping model offers such amazing value—even fashionistas without an environmental conscience behave like eco-chicks!
It isn’t just shopping in our own closets—it’s literally shopping in the closets of hundreds of fashion-savvy women!
