Host regular community-wide swap meets

1 Like

Hosting regular swap meets for neighbourhoods.

These can be seasonally focused — Halloween costumes, Christmas decor etc. As well as tailored to the community’s needs (clothing, dishes etc).

If these are scheduled and planned in advance the benefits are twofold:
— it encourages people to hold on to items they may no longer need, they can save them to bring to the swap meet for someone else to reuse
— it discourages people from purchasing these items new, when there is an opportunity to access it through the swap meet
