Gear Swap Info:

    • Anyone in our community° is welcome to bring items to the Gear Swap, and we will help you sell them to others at the event.
        • This excludes folks who are actively engaged in retail sales of these kinds of items.
    • We encourage you to bring items that will be of interest to the folks who come to this event, such as leather or rubber clothing, lingerie, fetish wear, kinky gear, adult toys, etc.
      • Damaged but reparable gear is acceptable.
      • Please refrain from bringing anything dirty, moldy, or unsafe.
    • You can choose to receive all the cash that is collected for your items, or to donate any or all of it to support the LEATHER & LGBTQ Cultural District.
    • You should mark or tag each item you are selling with your name or initials, the event date, and the price you want to get for that item. 
      • You may also attach additional information (size, item history, etc.).
      • If you are selling a lot of items, please prepare a list of the items and prices.
      • If you are donating 100% of the proceeds from an item, tagging is optional.   And thank you!
    • Bring your items to the Gear Swap booth in Eagle Plaza, on Saturday morning, April 13, between 11:30 am and 12:30 pm.
    • We will display your items and attempt to sell them for you.
        • We will have table space, a grid wall to hang items on, and a clothes rack.  Also chairs.  And extra blank tags if you need them.
        • If you wish to accept Venmo or PayPal payment, print out your username or QR code, along with any additional information you wish us to share with buyers.
        • We will only accept the price you set. 
        • We will accept cash payment and hold it for you.
        • We will also accept verified Venmo or PayPal payment to you, as displayed on the buyer’s phone.
      •  If you wish to “hang out” at the Gear Swap booth, you are very welcome to do so.  You may chat with potential buyers, and you may, if you wish, negotiate a different price for your item.
      • You must return to the Gear Swap booth by no later than 4:30 pm to retrieve your cash and unsold items.  
      • Items not picked up by 5:00 pm will become our property.
    • Selling or donating items that no longer fit your body or lifestyle is a wonderful thing to do:  folks who might not afford to buy these things new will appreciate them, and give them new kinky life!  
    • The organizers of this event, including their staff and volunteers, cannot be responsible for items lost, stolen, or damaged.   
    • Please read the “fine print” below.
