Co-Founders David and Ann Badillo

This is part of our commitment to deliver on our mission statement, to create a company that truly has its surrounding communities in mind.

On Saturday June 2, Browse & Pick will host their debut clothing swap. At this event women from all over the city will participate by bringing their unwanted clothes they currently have cluttering their closets and exchanging them through a unique swap point system created by founders David and Ann Badillo.

After their events, Browse & Pick will not carry over any clothing to future swaps. Today, David and Ann announced they will be donating all remaining clothing to the Salvation Army Family Store in Boerum Hill Brookyln. “We are proud to announce today our decision to donate clothing to the Salvation Army. My wife and I wanted to make sure that the organization we partnered with had great integrity, was representative of what we believe in as individuals and had a strong presence within the communities that make up North Brooklyn,” Said Co-Founder David Badillo.

Along with many other programs and services, the Salvation Army uses the proceeds from their thrift stores to help fund community programs such as housing and homeless services. “This is part of our commitment to deliver on our mission statement, to create a company that truly has its surrounding communities in mind. We want our swaps to have a positive impact not only on our customers by providing an opportunity to save money, but also for people who find themselves homeless and in need of programs and services such as those offered by the Salvation Army,” Said Co-Founder Ann Badillo.

Browse & Pick clothing swaps accept children’s clothing from size 6 months to size 8 and women’s clothing from size 4 to size 16 that are in new or excellent used condition. They will be hosting a series of three clothing swaps in the summer, the first being held on Saturday June 2nd at the Dumbo Spot in Dumbo. Tickets are currently still available and can be purchased through their website at
