Localisms: “The swap shed”

The swap shed or swap shack are sheds located at the Transfer Stations in the Robson Valley (Valemount, Dunster & McBride) where people can leave unwanted items and other people can take them – no money changing hands. Items taken from the swap shed are bragged about whenever someone comments on that item.

Example usage:

Person 1: “I love that neon pink lamé top!”
Person 2: “It’s from the Swap Shed!”
