Let's Swap!

What is a home accessories swap anyway?
Think of a clothing swap where everyone brings the clothes they no longer wear and trade them for clothes they are excited about adding to their wardrobe. This is exactly the same only folks are trading lamps, rugs, picture frames, candles and candle holders, art, etc.

How does it work?
Come with 3 or more items in good condition to swap for free. Folks will swap in 2 rounds of 30, picking 2 items per round, so everyone has a chance to get the coolest stuff. By the end, what has not been taken can become yours or go to Children’s Hospital Thrift Stores.

*$10 advance registration, $20 VIP registration, $15 at the door RSVP early!

The latest harvest from three local, eco-friendly companies – Tread Light Gifts, and Satsuma Designs - the Eco-Chic Expo will be held Saturday, May 1st at the Ravenna-Eckstein Community Center from 10a-2p.

Let's hear it for our confirmed exhibitors to date! They're ready to delight our guests this May Day by demonstrating how to go a little greener this season. We'll share more daily about these great, green-minded companies.

Designed to connect community with accessible, fun ways to live a greener life, event organizers reached out to local lifestyle brands known for their commitment to sustainability.

“At THINKNOW, we believe sustainability or 'being green' is not a single effort or one-time fashion statement. It’s a lifestyle, a community ethos and a plan for the world's future. The Eco-Chic Expo presents an excellent platform to participate in a premiere eco-community effort to inform and inspire a great local audience,” shares Becky Ellis, exhibitor and eco-friendly jewelry designer.

About Eco-Chic Expo

Eco-Chic Expo: an interactive green lifestyle event is the first traveling local showcase of sustainable lifestyle companies working to educate, encourage and entertain Seattle-ites interested in going green in any part of life: home, health, food, fashion, baby, beauty, interiors, travel and more.
