Recycle, reuse, and look fabulous doing it. Every girl has an array of great accessories in her closet that she never wears. Here's your chance to swap them for new ones you will wear. Here's how it works: Pay $10 per person at the door. 100% of the door fee will be used to help support the mission of the nonprofit Botanical Center. Bring your never used or gently used purses, totes, costume jewelry, scarves, gloves, hats or any kind of accessory without a numbered size to the Botanical Center at 6:30pm (limit 20 items to swap per person please). You will be able to enjoy a cocktail (cash bar) as you mingle with friends in the stunning tropical Sun Garden. While you are enjoying all the beauty the Sun Garden has to offer on a cold winter's night, we will be busy transforming the banquet room of the Botanical Center into a shoppers' paradise. At 7 p.m. we will open the doors of the banquet room and you will be able to pick up new-to-you items (You may take as many items as you brought). Just think you will be able to swap your old items for great new stuff! Participants must be here at 6:30 to join in the fun. Early Item Drop off.  Monday, February 17-Thursday, February 20. Drop off your items early at the gift shop of the Quad City Botanical Center during business hours. 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Please call 309-794-0991 x 203 for more information.
