Frequently Asked Questions:
Q: Can I drop off and pay early?
A: We’ll give you a ticket so you can come in and skip the drop-off line. Early drop-off starts at 9:30AM. Drop off, go grab a cup of coffee, then come back at 10am.
Q: Any other ways to help?
A: Yes, please have your membership card (see above) and correct change when you come in. That will make it go much faster.
Please don’t hoard. In an effort to save enough for everyone, please take only the same amount you brought and choose for your own immediate family, not Cousin Venita in Oklahoma.
Q: How does it work?
A: Bring items (in GOOD condition) that you'd like to swap. Find other people's treasures which are organized by size (and color when possible). Try to take no more than what you brought, take what you need, and share the wealth. It’s always fun for everyone to find a “diamond in the rough” so if you find more than one of something great, leave it for the next person. New items arrive throughout the day, so get a stamp if you want to come back. (There's no "moderator" or "show and tell" aspect to the swap.)
Reminder: Please wash all clothing and heat dry before wearing.
What do I bring?
Q: What happens to the leftovers?
A: Anything not swapped will be donated. In the past we've donated to Little Essentials, the Family Justice Center, Room to Grow, and other organizations. If you know of an organization that might like to have the leftovers, let us know!
Q: I'm Pregnant and have nothing to swap. Can I still come?
A: The most frequently remaining items are those for newborns so YES come without things as we always have 0 -12 month old things left over!
Q: How do I prove I'm a PSP Member?
A: Go to http://parkslopeparents.clubexpress.com, log in, click Profile, then download the jpg onto your phone or print the membership card.
Q: Can both my spouse/partner and I get in the door?
A: Yes-- PSP membership is a "family" membership
