[ARCHIVED] SwappER Shop Trade Event, Saturday, May 21

SwappER Garden Exchange

You’re invited to the City of Elk River’s first-ever SwappER Shop at the Sherburne County Fair Grounds from 9:00-11:00 a.m. What’s cool about these pop-up exchange events are the varying themes, where people are invited to donate gently used theme-related items no longer useful to them. 

Residents are invited to bring items that aren’t their style anymore, while having the opportunity to take home your own “new to you” treasures donated by other SwappER shoppers! What’s more, these are totally free to attend, and no money is exchanged - everything must be given and taken freely. 

The inaugural SwappER Shop is garden themed. Keep an eye out when decluttering the garage or shed for items in good condition that are simply taking up space and not being used, including: 

  • Lawn and garden décor 
  • Bird houses, bird feeders, bird baths
  • Planters and flowerpots (plastic, clay, ceramic)
  • Shovels, rakes, trowels, pitchforks, etc.
  • Hand tools
  • Gardening and plant books

We kindly ask that you leave the following items at home, as they won’t be accepted at the SwappER Shop:

  • Chemicals (fertilizers, pesticides, weed killer, bug killer, etc.)
  • Mowers, power tools (nothing gas or electric accepted)
  • Broken items
  • Plants, trees, shrubs, used garden soil

While you don’t have to bring items for donation to participate, for each item you do donate you’ll receive a ticket which will be drawn every 15 minutes for your chance to win Elk River Farmers Market tokens and $25 in Chamber Bucks’.
