Abundance swap a hit

December 12, 2004

Dougherty County- The Episcopal Church of St. John and St. Mark held an abundance swap Sunday afternoon.

Families brought in items they had no use for and were able to take away some things they really wanted or needed.

There was no bargaining and no money changed hands.

"Some people were reluctant to start with. Then they got into the feel that this is all free, this is all abundance of everybody in our community, and they have taken a lot of it with them," says Kirby Gregory.

Swappers took home everything from Christmas decorations to home office supplies. Anything left over was donated to area charities.
