Please join the HFA for the bi-annual FALL Swap. Our swap has been a Hoboken tradition for over 10 years!

We will now be accepting clothing for children of ALL ages- newborn to size 14.·
PLEASE DROP OFF YOUR ITEMS DURING THE “DROP OFF” PERIOD (between 9-11 am). You will be issued a credit that you can use during the sale from 12:30-2:30 pm. This will help us run the swap more efficiently.
During this drop off period, you can “check in” and have your hand stamped, so there will be no waiting in line when the swap opens at 12:30 pm.·
The swap will be closed during 11 a.m.-12:30 p.m. to organize the items we have received.
Please sort and label your clothing donation (e.g. “newborn boy/girl,” “3-6 months boy/girl,” etc.) It will save us valuable time in getting the clothing organized for the swap meet.·
Kindly do not drop any items off DURING the sale. All drop-offs after 12:30 pm will be considered straight donations and will not receive any credits. Thank you in advance for your consideration.
How Does it Work?
Bring your items to the swap meet and get credits (before 11:00 am).
You receive one credit for one item of clothing or multiple credits for larger items such as bouncy seats. You can exchange these credits for clothing, shoes, coats, and toys.
Larger baby gear items are for cash purchase only.
If you don’t have any items for exchange or would like to take home more items than you brought, you may purchase items for cash (example: $1 per children’s clothing, $2 maternity clothes, $2 shoes, $1-$10 toys, $10-$20 larger baby gear)
Any items you bring, in excess of your purchases, will be considered donations and will go to In Jesus Name, York Street Project and other local organizations in need.
Any items brought in after 12:30 pm will be considered a donation.
What to Bring?
Children’s apparel – newborn to size 14 (items in gently used condition to new)
Shoes – New or gently used
Baby gear (strollers, bouncy seats, diaper bags, high chairs, etc. – please be sure to bring all pieces for these items).
Toys and children’s books (only complete items with all small parts in a plastic bag taped to toy if applicable, and books with all pages in readable condition only, please).
Maternity clothes and nursing tops.
All formula, diapers, medicines, food and other baby essentials will be donated York Street Project.
What is gently used?
Gently used means that all clothing is like new or has been washed a few times , but in good condition . All clothing where applicable, have all working fasteners/zippers, no storage/smoke odor, no frayed edges / pills, and have seams that are intact.
Please use your best judgment– -if you do not find it acceptable for your child to wear that clothing, neither will anyone else!
