blue ridge mountain sports gear swap

The Blue Ridge Mountain Sports Spring Gear Swap will be held this Saturday and Sunday, April 13 and 14, at Blue Ridge Mountain Sports locations. Used outdoor sporting equipment will be available for purchase. (This isn’t a swap in the traditional sense of the word. It’s more like a consignment sale)

    Sell your used gear! All types of outdoor gear will be accepted, except footwear, sleeping bags, and climbing equipment. Bring your gear in before April 10th.

    Please make sure all gear is clean and in good condition, before bringing it to the swap. We reserve the right to refuse any item. You set the price, and if your stuff sells, you get a Blue Ridge gift card with the exact sale amount, which can be picked up on Monday, April 15. Items not sold must be picked up by April 29, or they will be donated to charity.
