Remember when you were a kid how trading anything you owned was the quickest way to upgrade your life? String cheese for your cupcake? Mechanical pencil for your oversize eraser? Bring those negotiation tactics back for Swap-O-Rama-Rama
at the Missouri History Museum (Lindell Boulevard and DeBaliviere Avenue; 314-746-4599 or www.mohistory.org
). Sponsored by the St. Louis Craft Mafia and the Upcycle Exchange, Swap-O-Rama-Rama encourages you to swap your gently used clean clothes with other thrifty fashionistas from noon to 4 p.m. One bag of duds and accessories (shoes included, but no undergarments) is all you need for admission. And if you find something that needs to be altered, there's an onsite sewing room set up for you to take in or let out the key piece to your new favorite outfit. Free clothes and alterations? Upgrading your wardrobe for spring doesn't get more economical or eco-friendly.
