“The reason I do this is because I have thirteen grandchildren who need clothes and enjoy toys. I like to consider this a recycling project of sorts, which not only benefit me and mine but other’s in need as well. Tee shirts or blouses are approximately 50 cents each; jeans and pants, $1.00! You can’t find that at your local Goodwill store.” Of course Linda is not in competition with any outlet or non-profit organization. Her motive is “people helping people in these current tough times.”
When asked what happens to the items that have not been swapped out or purchased Linda says with a smile, “After about a month I donate whatever is leftover to Big Brothers/Big Sisters.”
Free space is available on a first come, first serve basis located at 5300 Skyline Drive in San Tan Valley. “The more the merrier,” Linda exclaims. For more information regarding the Swap Meet or other services please contact Ms. Kubler at 480.882.3138.
From the writer: “I spent an entire weekend on site and sold a few items myself. It was pretty awesome to meet and see the clientele coming through. It lightens my heart to see a smile on people’s faces when they found the $ale of the century or something they really needed. I will definitely be searching for more of my own “personal treasures” to sell or swap throughout the next couple of months. Let’s keep this recycling going!”
