In these new economic times, even the most hardcore shopaholics have gotten hip to the phrase, Shop your closet. Sure, its great for the planet, but a little limited in terms of creative inspiration. But what if you could just take stuff from other peoples closets? At Swap-O-Rama-Rama, the international clothing swap and DIY workshop, you can do just that. Bring at least one bag full of clean unwanted clothing to donate, and then hit the swap pile to grab as many new-to-you pieces as youd like. Learn new ways to transform your pickings with the help of crafty volunteers at the Modification Station sewing center. Swap-O-Rama-Rama takes place at the Missouri History Museum (Lindell Boulevard and DeBaliviere Avenue; www.mohistory.org) today from noon to 4 p.m. Admission is free.
