The Clothes Exchange, a Vermont social enterprise committed to raising funds for community benefit, is exchanging clothes to support local farmers affected by Tropical Storm Irene at 152 Cherry Street in Burlington (the former location of the Outdoor Gear Exchange). The pop-up shop will be open from 11am-7pm on both days. All proceeds will go to the Intervale Center Farmers’ Recovery Fund. There is no entry fee.

A variety of new and pre-loved apparel for women, men and children will be on sale at bargain prices. Participating retailers include Sweet Lady Jane, ECCO, Stella, Claudia Venon Designs, Isis, Little Luna Blue, Isabean, Baked Beads, and Flashbags.
