St. Louis Mom Swap + Shop


Spring is near, and it’s the perfect time to clean out your closets and declutter your home while enjoying a break with other moms! 

Let’s get rid of unused items and swap for a few things as we enter a new season! 

Join us at Five Oaks on Warson
on Sunday, March 10th, 1:00 p.m. – 3:00 p.m.
for a swap and shop with St. Louis Mom.

Five Oaks will be offering complimentary child watch in their new indoor play area while moms shop!

Your ticket includes access to UNLIMITED shopping and FREE child watch. Plus, enjoy a complimentary refreshments.


Five Oaks on Warson is a brand-new community center in Olivette!

Five Oaks on Warson is different. It is more than a gym. It is more than a building for sports and fitness. It is a place for all ages to gather and participate in learning, wellness, and recreational activities—or rent space for a personal event.
In short, Five Oaks on Warson challenges us to reimagine what it means to be a community center.


Five Oaks offers an indoor playground that is available to residents and non-residents! It includes several playground features and encourages active social play.

They offer open play, structured drop-off play, and private event rentals! 

For the Swap & Shop, there are 30 complimentary child watch spots available during the event.

When purchasing your ticket, select the number of children that will be attending. 

Child watch is for kids 2-12 years old.

Can I donate items without participating in the swap?

Yes! You can drop off items starting at noon. A ticket is not needed if you aren’t planning to shop. We just ask that you fill out the participation form.

Can I shop if I don’t bring items to the swap?

We encourage everyone to bring items to the swap; however, it is not a requirement. 

How many items can I take?

Shopping is on a first come, first serve basis. There is no limit on the amount of items you can leave with. We ask that you take what’s reasonable. 

How long can I shop?

This is a playdate as much as it is a swap meet. Once you’re done shopping, enjoy the break while your kids enjoy a supervised play time!

Can I bring my baby?

Of course! Children under 2 are welcome; however, they will need parent supervision on the indoor playground.

What should I bring to shop with?

We suggest bringing a tote or wagon to hold your items as you shop. 

Can I take what I brought back if it remains at the end of the swap?

Yes, we will also be donating the remaining items to local charities. 


All items left after the swap will be donated to local charities.

All in season kid’s clothes will be donated to Helping Hand Me Downs.

There is literally always something going on here! Kalyn has a passion for planning and finds joy in executing the perfect event!


    • This is our first swap event! The event is open to all moms so there will be various sizes to shop but I would assume a smaller pool of plus sizes.

  1. This was a fun (enjoyed mingling with other moms) and a helpful event (I came home with a good amount of needed baby clothes)! I hope to see more of these in the future!
