The 2010 Frugal Festival Summer Swap is a one-day gathering of folks who want to trade clothes, shoes, accessories, media, and housewares. The Frugal Festival is Saturday, June 19, 2010 at the NoHo Performing Arts Center. (See map, upper right). The event begins at 10 a.m., when folks can begin dropping off their swappables, and ends at 3 p.m.

Each swapper will receive a FREE reusable bag to keep their fantastic finds. There will also be RAFFLE PRIZES just for coming and swapping! We are proud to be hosting this event with TheSwapaholics, two lovely ladies from Boston who have organized many, many swaps.
