We have a heart for helping women — it’s at the core of why we do everything we do! If you also have a passion for helping others and welcome the opportunity to meet new people who can make an impact on your life, we encourage you to join the conversation, either online through our blog and Facebook or offline at our trendy trade clothing swap events.

TRENDY TRADE BLOG – REPURPOSED

Our blog exists to give you a deeper glimpse into who we are, where our hearts fall, and what happens in between our trendy trade clothing swap events. We also love sharing tips on how to empower yourself, attain happiness and of course, organize your closet, home and life!

We believe everyone has a purpose. It’s not always who we’ve been, but our journey has molded us into being used for this purpose now and we want to inspire you to find your purpose as well.

We’re giving old things new life, whether it is in our closets, in our lives, or in our hearts. We’ve been repurposed.

HOW WE DO IT

OUR MISSION
To provide women a venue to give, receive and enrich the lives of others through a beautiful exchange.

OUR VISION
We have decided that now is the time for a change and this is where it begins. By working with what we already have, we’re carving out a place in this world where fashion meets frugality. We’re rolling up our sleeves, putting on our heels and looking fabulous while doing it. The trendy trade woman likes to look fashionable, but loves to steal a deal.

It’s our best kept fashion secret. You will go home not only with piles of new favorite finds, but also with money still in your wallet. Our hope is that because of your trendy trade experience, you feel richer when you leave than when you came. We’re taking over the country one city at a time and we’re not stopping there!
