Clothing Exchange in PDX?!

I'm wondering if any of you fine folks out there know of any clothing exchanges that are going on here in PDX. I used to exchange clothes with my friends in Mpls once a season. Now that I'm here in PDX, I'm looking to exchange with some different folks that will help me expand my wardrobe in terms of inexpensive clothes and to challenge my "ho-hum" clothing style. Any ideas?!

Hey - thanks for the compliment on the photos. I'm having a great time taking them while I'm unemployed. As for the Avett Brothers - I'm with you all the way. I haven't loved a band this much in years and I had five friends bail on me the night of the zoo concert and went by myself and it was amazing - every friggin' waterlogged second of it. I can't wait to be up close both nights coming up. We'll have to look for each other. I would kill to be at SXSW to see them play with The Decemberists. Holy shit, what a show that's gonna be.

Hey Karen - It's John from tonight's get-together at Laurelthirst (you're probably still there!). Okay, now that I look at your music list we should have talked more. Anyone with The Avett Brothers on their list is my new best friend. LOVE, LOVE, LOVE them and I already have tickets to both of their shows coming up at the Crystal Ballroom. Did you go to the zoo concert last year in the rain?? FABULOUS!! Love that you have Cake and Grandaddy (Jason Lytle's solo CD is due out soon) on the list (along with Radiohead, FOW, Beck, etc.) too. Great meeting you tonight and see you soon! Photos coming soon-ish.

I may hit you up in the future for some information. For now I am going to just have to be satisfied with looking at the picture. :)
