Sustainable shopping event vendor registration due April 12

Second Swell effort to support local nonprofits
April 7, 2021

Second Swell will host its inaugural sustainable shopping event from 12 to 6 p.m., Friday and Saturday, April 16 and 17, at Big Chill Surf Cantina in support of the Delaware Center for the Inland Bays and the Delaware Coalition Against Domestic Violence.

Second Swell was conceived by a group of local women as an opportunity to increase the value of the sustainable clothing movement while giving back to an environmental organization and shelter provider.

The event will showcase gently used clothing and accessories from a variety of vendors who are general community members. Those vendor items will be for sale at reduced prices, all under $30, for an outdoor shopping experience.

Second Swell’s mission is to integrate better usage of material items with local community gains; provide affordable, fashion forward-clothing to underserved communities; and decrease participants’ overall carbon footprint.

An entrance fee of $5 per person allows attendees to shop from more than 15 vendors and 700 items so far. Entry fee proceeds go to the Delaware Center for the Inland Bays.

Any unsold clothing and accessories after the two-day event will be donated to the Delaware Coalition Against Domestic Violence.

To register as a vendor, email by Monday, April 12.
