Cavendish Abundance Swap

Please note that the following: The Abundance Swap is going ahead as scheduled. While 131 is clear, but wet, it maybe a little more difficult for people to get off the backroads. The doors open at 9:30 to start dropping off items for the swap, with the actual swap starting at 10. To make sure people take their time getting to the school, we'll stay open longer than the originally posted 11:30.

When: December 6 (Saturday)

Where: Cavendish Elementary School in Proctorsville

Time: Doors open at 9:30 for drop of items. Swap is from 10-11:30

Sponsor: Cavendish Connects

More Information: With the discontinuation of the town’s annual Holiday Fair, Cavendish Connects recognized the need for a new way for the community to gather during this time of year. A new tradition for holiday giving, the Abundance Swap invites the community to both share and receive the bounty of the season.

Held on December 6 (Saturday) at the Cavendish Town Elementary School, the process is straightforward:

 Step 1: Pick 3-5 items in your home, shop or office that someone would enjoy as a gift. These should be in really good shape and of quality, meaning it’s well made and likely to be valued by someone. NO JUNK. Children are encouraged to bring gently used toys they may have outgrown or no longer use.

Step 2: Bring them to the Cavendish Town Elementary School on Saturday morning starting at 9:30 am. Drop off your items, enjoy a visit with your neighbors, sharing the stories of what you are bringing to the swap. From 10-11:30, select presents for someone on your holiday giving list (it can be you)

Step 3: Enjoy yourself!

If you would like to help with the swap, or have questions, please contact or call 802-226-7807.
