The Frugal Festival is at the NoHo PAC this year, a hip new venue on Magnolia just east of Lankershim in North Hollywood.

*10:00am – Noon: *Drop off clothes, media, and housewares to swap and get your free reusable bag and free raffle ticket.

*Noon – 1:00pm: *Feel free to grab a coffee, browse thrift stores, get a bite to eat, have your nails done at nearby businesses.

1:00pm – 3:00pm: Swap!*
