The swap is not a 1:1 ratio. As long as you have given to the space, you are free to select as many items you need. Just be mindful others need to swap too
Swaps can be pre-loved or new
Note that preloved items should be in at least very good or excellent condition.
Self Care and Beauty must be unopened and new
