Celebrate and Decorate Swap Event at Calvert Library (press release)

Celebrate & Decorate SWAP Event

 

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Contact: Robyn Truslow
410-535-0291

 

Calvert Library hosted its first swap meet a couple weeks ago and it was a grand success!  Over 80 people benefited from the event…some cleared out their closets and some took home cool baby items like a wooden rocking horse, adorable baby clothing (some with the tags still on them!) and great board books. 

 

The next event is perfectly timed to save you from having to put away your Halloween decorations!  On Monday, November 3, from 7-8:30pm bring them along with your other seasonal décor, costumes and special occasion “stuff” to Calvert Library Prince Frederick.  Maybe you have an extra pack of napkins left over from a baby shower or extra Batman plates from a birthday party…maybe you even have some holiday recipes you would like to share and trade.  Perhaps you are looking for a new theme for your Christmas tree.  This will be a great opportunity to refresh your decoration stash and pick out costumes for next year! 

 

To supplement the swap with great fun and education there will also be holiday bow-making demonstrations, refreshments and even music! Join us for this environmentally-friendly, community-building event that will refresh your holiday décor!  Bring your own bags/boxes in which to carry your swap home!  Leftover items will be donated to a thrift store.  More details on this and other swap events can be found at calvert.lib.md.us/swap.html or by calling Robyn Truslow at 410-535-0291.
