Trade in your old clothes, help charity

PHILADELPHIA - October 18, 2008

Here's how it works. You pay $20 admission to get into the Old Pine Community Center in Society Hill between noon and 5:00 p.m. on Sunday.

You bring your gently used -- and clean -- clothes for other people who might want them. In return, you get to check out and take other people's gently used clothes.

Or you can get help from volunteers and artists who're there to modify your old clothes so that they're wearable once again.

Any clothes that aren't taken at the end of the event will be donated to the Curiosity Shop, a non-profit thrift shop.

And the cash take will be donated to Kiva, an organization that provides small loans to start up businesses in Third World countries.
