When my mother started her now-famous clothing swap about 11 years ago, we weren’t thinking, “Let’s bring the generations together.” We were thinking, “Let’s figure out how to indulge our constant itch for fresh styles without spending any money, and how to rid our closets of bad shopping decisions without any guilt.”

It all began in 2008. We dubbed it the “recession swap” because it seemed like the perfect event for lean times. The name stuck, and though some indicators say that the recession has ended, Mom refuses to change the name.
