Baby Grow To Host Children's Clothing Swap At Carroll Park Fair

IMG_7835
Baby Grow, a Brooklyn-based membership service to rent baby gear, will be hosting a children's clothing swap at this year's Carroll Park Fair, in Carroll Gardens which is held this coming Saturday, May 21st. Make sure to look for their booth and take advantage of this opportunity to save money and to be kind to the environment.
Please spread the word to other neighborhood mothers, please.

Here is how the swap works:
Baby Grow is swapping new and gently used baby clothing, sleep sacks, and shoes, sizes newborn – 3T. You’ll earn a ticket for every item you swap (but not for charity donations) to be exchanged for a new-to-you item (Ex: donate 5 items, take 5 items)

We recommend that you please drop off all items by Friday, April 20th at one of 3 locations – Park Slope, Boerum Hill, & Bedford Stuyvesant, indicate your preference in the signup form! (That way we can have all the clothes out on the tables when the fair starts). 
Or if you can’t drop them off in advance, please bring them to Carroll Park by 11am the day of the swap. No items will be accepted after 11am.

Cost: $5 suggested cash donation helps moms and kids in need at Covenant House. All leftover clothing will be donated.

Check out all clothing to be swapped ahead of time at Instagram #carrollparkswap or @babygrowgear!!
Baby Grow is a Brooklyn-based, gear sharing monthly subscription service for parents to rent up to 3 baby items per month and then exchange them as the baby grows out of them. The service has been developed by local mom, Judy Bornebusch, to protect living space and the environment. Items range from baby carriers to rockers to travel cribs. All gear is listed online, includes instructional tips & videos, and can be reserved if out of stock - new items are added weekly. 
Find a complete listing of items at babygrowgear.com.

***Please note that the swap will take place from 10 am to 1 pm, though the Carroll Park Fair will last till 5 pm.
