Stop ‘N’ Swap Comes to Columbus Park on Sunday

Past Shop 'N' Swap event.

Past Shop ‘N’ Swap event.

Coming up on Sunday in Chinatown, Grow NYC is hosting one of its Stop ‘N’ Swap events. Here’s the scoop:

The public is invited to bring clean, portable, reusable items to share with those who can use them. No one is required to bring something to take something — you can simply show up with a bag and see what’s free for the taking. Books, toys, fashionable clothing, housewares and electronics are just some of the offerings. In response to increasing demand for the events, GrowNYC has set a goal of hosting one swap in each of the city’s 59 community districts each year. Anything left at the end of the day is donated or recycled. Furniture and other large items are not accepted at the swap.

Sunday’s event takes place in Columbus Park, 67 Mulberry St. from 11-2 p.m. More details here.
