Take your motorcycle there!

You may have noticed that with today’s date, we’ve officially crossed into the moment where there’s less than one month left until Valentine’s Day.

Never fear (well, fear a little bit if that really is your costume idea): the good folks who organized last spring’s totally awesome, totally schwaglicious free swap meet on the Gowanus Canal are gearing up for a duo of new swaps for the holiday season, starting with a Halloween costume swap the week before All Hallow’s Eve.
