What is a swap meet?
A swap meet refers to a J Fashion event where attendees sell or trade items that they no longer wear. It is a great way to see things in person and buy them without having to think about shipping! If you and another attendee are interested in each other’s things, you can also negotiate a trade!
What if I don’t have any J Fashion?
If you’re just starting out, a swap meet is a good place to see what’s available and maybe get your first pieces! You’re more than welcome to attend if you don’t have anything in your J Fashion wardrobe yet.
Where does the money from my ticket go?
This is a fundraising event for DC Kawaii Style. First and foremost, we are going to use the money from ticket sales to pay for the event space at Cultured Coffee Too. Profits will be used by DC Kawaii Style as seed money for
-programming, panels & other convention appearances
-providing more resources and opportunities for our community members to explore and develop themselves through kawaii
-our journey to non-profit status including registering our trade & service marks, legal fees, and basic operation
Everything is so expensive/I didn’t sell anything/I want to trade my this for that but they won’t accept my offer!
Unfortunately, we cannot guarantee that your items will be sold. Likewise, we do not set the prices on the items for sale. What each seller is willing to accept for their items is up to their discretion.
