Thanks to OnlytheBlogKnowsBrooklyn for sussing out this tip: an open-air swap on Saturday May 30, at BKLYNYard, an outdoor music space on Carroll Street between Nevins and Bond. The big giveaway is sponsored by local groups (FreeNYC, Newmindspace, RefugeNYC, MeanRed Productions), attendees are encouraged to bring clothing, books, music and kitchen miscellaney to trade for others’ toss offs. For those who can’t decide between the ruched boots and a gingham tea cozy, a roving stylist will help you. (So will we: take the boots.) The event is from 11 to 6, with a rain date of June 6. Unclaimed merch will be collected by Rock and Wrap It Up, an anti-poverty group that distributes donations to non-profits throughout the city. Find out more here BKLYN Yard.
