Nokomis Community Center—2401 E Minnehaha Pkwy, Minneapolis, MN 55417
October 19, 12 pm, goes until clothes run out (anticipated 2:00 pm)
The Big Fat Super Swap is a body positive, 2x/20 and up clothing swap for people of all genders. Our mission is to help combat clothing scarcity in harder-to-find sizes (2x to 4/5x+).
Show-up at the Nokomis Community Center ( 2401 E Minnehaha Pkwy, Minneapolis, MN 55417), grab all the clothes you want and head out the door. Bring your own bags! Suggested $5 or pay what you can—no one will be turned away for lack of funds—at the door to cover the cost of the swap. Cash heavily preferred.
**Starts at 12 pm and goes until clothes run out OR 2:30 pm. It is anticipated we will run out of clothes by 1:30 so come early!** We’ll have all the clothes we can possibly have out at the beginning! See info below for accessibility hour.
Parking at the community center can be tight, so please leave close spaces for folks who need them by carpooling or parking in the overflow lot. Please note there is no AC at this venue, so please dress accordingly!
DONATIONS ARE OPEN! Bring your swap donations to Cake Plus-Size Resale by Wednesday, October 16. The BFSS works a little differently than most by only accepting swap clothing donations ahead of time. Please do not bring donations to the event. No need to donate to come to the swap—everyone is welcome!
We will have a donation jar the SUPER COAT FUND and recommend donating based on the amount of clothes you take if you’re able (suggested $1 per 1-2 items). The Super Coat Fund is a coat donation program put on by the Big Fat Super Swap team. We buy and distribute new and gently used coats to fat folks, prioritizing larger folks. We will have a limited number of buttons and stickers for those who donate, but ask people to donate if they are able regardless. If you need a coat, we will have a sign up form at the event for those who did not find a coat at the swap, it is a first come, first serve program.
