Last year I brought affordable new & pre-loved Halloween costumes and they were such a hit with festival attendees so that's what I'm bringing again this year. Here are some photos of happy kids in their costumes.
On Sat. 9/13/14 a friend will be joining me to sell scarves and other accessories. On Sunday, 9/14/14, another friend will be in my tent selling her custom tutus. Please come visit our tent near the Children's area. We look forward to meeting you!

Success is achieving a goal. When I came up with the concept of Gumdrop Swap years ago, I was just solving a problem. Then I learned many other parents were just as frustrated as I was. My goal was to provide a service and be a resource to parents like myself. I never enjoyed the politics involved when I worked in a corporate setting. I don’t make as much money as I did when I worked for someone else but I prefer the freedom of making my own decisions and the satisfaction of knowing I’m impacting my community in a positive way. I sleep much better these days because I enjoy going to work.
It's a FREE EVENT if you are on foot and
$5 charge for each car to park so,
if you must drive, be sure to carpool!
Gumdrop Swap Children's and Maternity Boutique will be selling a selection of our best new merchandise. Please come visit our tent near the children's zone. The organizers are very accommodating and organized. Live Green Connecticut gets better every year! They have entertainment, a kid's tent, food, discussions and of course a variety of vendors with products and services. Do you have a business that is eco-friendly or family friendly? I highly recommend you also being an exhibitor at this event! Get your PDF application here.
Email the founders Daphne & Scot and make sure you mention Gabby from Gumdrop Swap sent ya!
We've been in our new location for about a month now and starting to feel settled. Thank you to all who supported in some way. Whether a customer, donor to our fundraiser campaign or physically helped move - THANK YOU!
We didn't move far. We are now at 993 Main St, Suite 1U, Bridgeport, CT 06604. If you are familiar with our old location we just moved from in side the Arcade Mall to the outside, right across from Jimmy's. Our street location makes it a lot easier to unload and load for swapping. If you haven't checked out our new digs, here are some photos to wet your palette.
