Saving With 6abc
Rosemont College swap meet Saturday
ROSEMONT, Pa. - Sept. 14, 2012 (WPVI) -- A boy's Izod shirt, new with tags. A DVD player/VCR. Lots of books. And even printer ink. Those are just a few items that could be yours in exchange for just a small donation at a Swap Meet on Saturday, Sept. 15, 2012.
Students got a sneak peek at some of the donated items that will be available at the event that Rosemont College is holding as part of its Sustainability Fair.
The idea is keep usable items out of landfills and encourage environmentally-friendly behavior.
Lauren McDonnell explains, "The swap meet itself will be open from 12:00 until 6:00 p.m. on Saturday. You just need to make a donation in the amount of your choice, at least one dollar, to the Camden Children's Garden, and then you can enter and shop and it's basically first-come, first-serve."
A full list of items that the fair is accepting is available here, but basically, if it's portable and in good condition, you can donate it.
And in return, you could end up getting some great deals.
McDonnell adds, "This is a great opportunity to go through your home and anything you don't want, bring here and maybe there could be something else you would want."
Donations will be accepted from 10:00 a.m. until noon.
You can also bring old cell phones and other electronic devices for recycling by the Pennsylvania Resources Council.
