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 at the door or pay what you can—no one will be turned away for lack of funds. Your donation helps 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!**
As of 1/23, accessibility hour has moved to a wait list. If you would like to be on the wait list, please see read our post and send us an email (email@example.com)
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.
DONATIONS ARE OPEN! Bring your swap donations to Cake Plus-Size Resale or Real Life Coffee & Yoga by Wednesday, March 18. 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 clothes to come to the swap—everyone is welcome!
We will have a donation jar for the Super Coat Fund, Family Tree Clinic, and possibly other organizations (TBD) at the exit. We recommend donating based on the amount of clothes you take if you’re able (suggested $1 per 1-2 items).

We have an Accessibility Hour for individuals who may have trouble navigating a tight and crowded space due to limited mobility or anxiety related reasons. We love having Accessibility Hour to make an equitable space for folks who need it, but ***due to increased demand and limited space, we’ve made a handy guide to help you figure out if it’s right for you!***
Please note that accessibility is available ONLY to folks who contact us ahead of time, and we have around ~15 spots available. We want to keep this space accessible and rely on you to keep it that way!
Please read our post here and see instructions for signing up: https://bigfatsuperswap.org/accessibility-hour/
VOLUNTEERING: We will be posting about volunteer opportunities soon.
