About 400 people packed into the Historic Ashland Armory to drop off stuff they no longer want and grab new stuff they can put under the Christmas tree for others Thursday during the
seventh annual Abundance Swap.
Bill Kauth, one of the event's creators, said 15 to 20 other
cities have gone to the
Abundance Swap's Web site, www.abundanceswap.org, and learned how to stage the event.
