3Get ready to swap!

The host of your local Loop will add you to the route as soon as possible. After that, it is only a matter of time before the first bag will arrive! If you find something you like, you can take it out of the bag. And you put in something that no longer suits you, before passing the bag on to the next person on the list. Don’t forget to share a picture of your newfound favorite with the group!
