Deals to be had at 'Swap and Shop'

Posted: Updated:
ORLANDO, Fla. (WOFL FOX 35 ORLANDO) -

Looking to update your wardrobe without spending lots of money? Well, you may want to try the "Swap and Shop" in Orlando.

It's a shopper's paradise where people swap tops, bottoms and other clothing. 

"The idea is you bring stuff and take stuff," said Dana Marie Roquemore, who organizes the Swap and Shop several times a year, where more than 100 shoppers of all different sizes browse without having to buy. "It allows people to clean out their closets, get rid of stuff that they just don't wear anymore, and come out and swap with other people."

For an admission fee of $7, you bring a bag and walk away with much more. Sam says, "I bring whatever I can't see myself wearing anymore or I just don't think my style is. I don't like to plan what I'm going to find. I like to be surprised. It's half the fun of coming to these things."

But you've got to be quick, because it could be gone in a snap! 

"They go for it pretty strong and hard but not really a fight," says Roquemore.

Besides all the fabulous clothes, there are also shoes, jewelry and even accessories.  Sam says, "I found a cute trench coat that I'm excited about. Really good find."

All the clothes left behind are donated to charity.

For more information go to www.otherpeoplesproperty.com or like the Facebook page of Other People's Property to get updates on the next swap. Admission is $7 if you drop off a bag ahead of time or $12 if you arrive with items the night of the event.
