Score and Swap, For Free!

One person's trash really is another person's treasure. At the inaugural swap organized by Score!, over 1,300 people attended to "score" new items and donate to a selected charity.

Jenny Gottstein created the idea of Score! when sorting through her office and realizing how much stuff she didn't need. So, she called up some of her friends and professional clothing shoppers to create an event that drew over 1,300 people at its first swap.

Swappers have the opportunity to find old vinyl records as well as brand new running shoes, but clothes are the most popular item at the events.
