This Friday to Sunday (April 13th-15th) Swapsity will host a media swap as part of the Toronto Green Living Show at the Exhibition Place.
It's simple - If you have 10 Records that you no longer dig, bring em in, get a ticket for ''media items', and voila! Leave with 10 things that other people have brought. It isn't limited to LP's, as CD's, DVD's, and Blu-Rays will also be traded.
Though not all of my readers are Torontonians, I can't stress how important this initiative is. Thousands of LP's are tossed in the trash every year. I get it, not everyone wants a beat up Conway Twitty LP. But you will never know for sure unless its up for grabs. The Toronto Mid-Town Collectibles Show has a 'free pile' every year that includes many 'undesired LPs', only to see them vanish by the end of the day. Do your part- either come to this swap, or organize a swap with your friends. It's a great way to experience new tunes while saving our landfills.
See what treasures were found at last years swap!
