Press release submitted by Quad City Botanical Center.

Quad City Botanical Center, 2525 4th Ave. Rock Island, will hold an Accessory Swap Meet, 6:30 8 p.m. Friday, Feb. 22.
Recycle, reuse and look fabulous doing it. Every girl has an array of great accessories in her closet that she never wears. Here's your chance to swap them for new ones, you will wear.
Pay $10 per person at the door, and 100% of the door fee will be used to help support the mission of the nonprofit Botanical Center.
Bring in never used or gently used purses, totes, costume jewelry, scarves, gloves, hats or any kind of accessory without a numbered size to the Botanical Center at 6:30 p.m. (limit 10 items per person please). We will take your items and give you a ticket for each of them. Enjoy a cocktail (cash bar) as you mingle with friends. While you are enjoying all the beauty the Sun Garden has to offer on a cold winter's night, we will be busy transforming the banquet room of the Botanical Center into a shoppers' paradise.
At 7 p.m. the doors of the banquet room will open and participants will be able to redeem tickets for new to you items (one ticket equals one new item). Participants must be at the center at 6:30 p.m.
For information, call Beth 309-794-0991 x 30
