“Americans throw away more than 68 pounds of clothing and textiles per person per year,” according to vintage fashion purveyors Other People’s Property (quoting numbers from the EPA). They suggest that you keep your stuff out of the landfill, and have fun doing it, by participating in one of their wardrobe exchanges. Drop off your swappable clothing, shoes or jewelry – anything that once delighted you, but whose glamour has palled – at Downtown Credo coffeehouse, 706 W. Smith St., by April 19. Then on Monday night, exchange it for more glad rags – not new, but new to you. It’s like shopping, but everything’s free, including the mini-massages, haircuts, coffee, baked goods and tote bags! Well, not everything: Halfway through the night, OPP clears out the “swap” and opens the “shop” with choice vintage items from their fantastic inventory. Any leftover swap items are donated to Dress for Success, and a portion of proceeds from vintage items sold will be donated to Charity: Water. It’s a pretty good look.

5:30-8 p.m. Monday, April 20 | Winter Park Plaza, 330 W. Fairbanks Ave., Winter Park | | $10-$20
