Win a Free Manicure at Frugal Fe$t!

You read that right: if you come swap with us next Saturday, June 19, at the Frugal Fe$t, you’ll be automatically entered to win a gift certificate for a FREE manicure. How cool is that?

Deborah at Mani-Kir Royale in the NoHo Arts District will be offering special mani/pedi rates exclusively for swappers and has donated a gift certificate for a free manicure to our raffle! Mani-Kir Royale is located at 11008 Magnolia Boulevard in North Hollywood, just around the corner from the NoHo Performing Arts Center. Plenty of time to polish up those fingers and toes before trying on some new-to-you summer shoes at the swap — just one more reason to come swap ’til you drop with us next Saturday, June 19th. 🙂

If you haven’t gotten your tickets yet, grab them now: these puppies are selling out FAST! Go to Goldstar.com and then click on the link for Saturday June 19th (under the bright green bar) to buy your tickets. VIP tickets are $15 and include some super-awesome swag; regular tickets are $10 without stuff to swap, $5 with stuff to swap. The event runs from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m., broken up like this:

10 a.m. to 12 p.m.
Drop off your swap donations
(clothes, CDs, DVDs, books, accessories, housewares) and grab a Swap Map at registration. We’ve partnered with local businesses in the NoHo Arts District to offer you some sweet deals and discounts, like the one at Mani-Kir Royale, to take advantage of while we…

12 to 1 p.m.
Swap closed to the public while we sort
& beautify the swap space, making it easier to shop the swap and find those new-to-you treasures.

1 to 3 p.m.
Swap ’til you drop!
VIP ticket holders move to the front of the line, and when we open the doors, it’s a mad dash to find your those dreamy swap scores. DJ Andie Cassette will be spinning records and providing an indie rock backdrop of beats while you sift through the swap for the best stuff. At 2 p.m., we’ll start the raffle (exclusively for ticket-holders) and will open up the swap FREE to the public.

Can’t wait to swap with you next Saturday!

Oh, and if you know any business owners in the NoHo Arts District who you think also need a place on our sweet Swap Map, please send them our way, or leave us a note in the comments and we’ll reach out!

See you soon,
