WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — Swapping goods, rather than buying items at the store is a growing trend across the country.

Port City Swappers founder Andy Myers told ‘Good Morning Carolina’ anchor Ashley Jacobs that he got the idea after learning how popular trading items is in larger cities.

Think half silent auction, half private deals. "Swappers" can trade homegrown, home brewed and homemade items or products with others.

The group meets monthly in Wilmington. To find out when they’re having the next swap meet and learn more, check out the full interview.
