Potential Problem Averted
As a host of this furniture swapping party, you don't want a room full of furniture stacked to the ceiling, projecting the new style of a horder. The guests problem would be actually bringing the furniture. I can see all the guests dressed in there party best, pulling up in U-hauls, or even better, valeting their U-haul trucks. Neighbors would be hearing the sounds of beeping from the backing trucks all night, and as much fun as that would be to experience... This can be all avoided with a simple picture. You can either have your guests bring a picture of the furniture they are tired of and want to get rid of, or have them email you a picture so you can have them all ready to view in time for the party. I would first set up a few ground rules to insure people aren't tyring to give away furnitrure that's broken, badly scratched up, or missing parts without leting other guests know. You could write what kind of condition the piece is in on the back of each picture. Most of all, have fun. As you know, one man's trash is another man's treasure.
