The Swap Table
In the foyer of Torbreck, my apartment building, there is a table. This is where you can pick up a newspaper or The Brisbane News as you arrive home.
Over the last few months something special has happened to the table. It has become the Residents’ Swap Table.
Books, magazines, outgrown children’s clothes, interesting utensils, dressmaker’s patterns, shoes, toys all sorts of things have stated arriving on the table.
The best thing is that you can pick up a book for the afternoon, have a little read, and if it’s not your thing you simply put it back on the table for someone else.
There is one rule I do keep. You must put something on the table to be able to pick an item up. I have placed Architecture Magazines, books and dress up clothes on the table, so I feel A-Ok about the odds and ends I have picked up.
Such a joy each morning to walk through the foyer and see what has arrived on the table overnight.
I do love the community at Torbreck! Thank you!
