How Does it Work?

hoboken-swap-meet-2.jpgBring your items to the swap meet and get a credit for each thing you bring. For example, you receive one credit for one item of clothing or multiple credits for larger items such as bouncy seats. You can exchange these credits for clothing, shoes, coats, and toys. Larger baby gear items are for cash purchase only.

If you don’t have any items for exchange or would like to take home more items than you brought, you may purchase items for cash (example: $1 per clothing item, $2 maternity clothes, $2 shoes, $1-$10 toys, $10-$20 larger baby gear) Or, you can just donate your items. Any items you bring, in excess of your purchases, will be considered donations and will go to DYFS and other local organizations in need.

* If requested, you can obtain a credit for items dropped off during the 10:00am-12:00pm time frame. You can use this credit during the sale from 12:00-3:00. Note: You can drop off items during the sale also.

(2008 HFA Spring Swap Meet, continued…)

What to Bring?

All baby, toddler, and children’s clothes, shoes, and coats. (items in condition from gently used condition to new, unstained, with all pieces included) **
Baby gear (strollers, bouncy seats, diaper bags, etc. – please be sure to bring all pieces for these items)

Toys and children’s books (only complete items with all small parts in a plastic bag taped to toy if applicable, and books with all pages in readable condition only, please)
Maternity clothes

We will take a collection of formula, other baby essentials when donated and give to Hudson Cradle… these items will not be a part of the swap.

** Please sort and label your clothing donation (i.e. “newborn boy/girl,” “3-6 months boy/girl,” etc. It will save us valuable time in getting the clothing organized for the swap meet. Thank you! **

ANYTHING IN GOOD ENOUGH CONDITION FOR YOU TO USE IT IN YOUR HOME. If you wouldn’t find it acceptable, neither will anyone else!

What NOT to Bring?

Stuffed animals
NO ADULT CLOTHING (aside from Maternity clothing)
ANYTHING without all it’s parts (for example, please no changing pads from diaper bags, hoses to breast pumps, and other miscellaneous parts to larger items – we don’t know what they are and they often get lost in the shuffle – if you think it is a useful item, consider advertising it on the HFA bulletin board. Thanks)
