Are you good with sharing? Do you play well with others? Well, hot damn! The new location of Nana (3068 Mt. Pleasant St. N.W.) will host a clothing exchange on National Swap Day, Saturday, Jan. 22, when you can meet you people and make off with their apparel.

Haul your in-good-condition castoffs to Mount Pleasant from 11 a.m. to noon. Women's clothing, shoes, handbags and accessories are welcome.

Your stuff will be sorted and set up in their Pop-Up Swap store. Go do something on your own darn time from noon to 1 p.m., and then return from 1 to 3 p.m. for the actual swap. Everything left over at the end will be donated to Goodwill of Greater Washington. Tickets are $10; you can order online here.

The event's hosted by local vintage-wear blog QuarterLife, which advises, "Save your budget, save the environment, save your dignity. We can't do it all at once, but it's the little things." Little things... like accessories?
