Looking for something new to wear, but don’t want to pay retail prices? Consider a clothing exchange.

This weekend, the City of Glendale’s Office of Sustainability is hosting a summer clothing swap for the community.

The June 1 event will take place at the Pacific Park Library from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m.

Participants may bring up to 10 clean and gently used items of clothing to exchange, including children’s clothing. A ticket will be issued for the number of items brought in so that the same number can be removed.

Clothing is divided into categories and placed on tables where swappers can browse and make selections.

The Repair Café will be back on June 8. Skilled volunteers repair, tinker and repair items for free, from clothing to dull knives, broken light bulbs and more. The event will also take place at the Pacific Park Library from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m

In the first year of the Clothing Exchange and Repair Cafés, more than £1,000 was raised. A large amount of textiles and clothing was diverted from landfill, over 250 items were repaired and over 500 attendees and community volunteers participated.

Jewelry, shoes, underwear, socks and other accessories are not accepted in the clothing exchange.
