Let someone else #reuse your holiday decorations

As if you didn't already have enough reasons to come to the Check Em Off, Green event, here's one more. If you're sick of your holiday decorations and want a change, but can't bring yourself to go buy brand new stuff, you can swap out your old stuff with others!

There will be a special section at Check 'Em Off, Green for a decoration swap. Bring in your unwanted decorations from Halloween, Solstice, Christmas, Hanukkah, Kwanzaa, New Year's and any other fall/winter holidays. Leave them for others to reuse. If something catches your eye, take it home with you! No money is exchanged, just a straight-up sharing of community resources.
