Stop shopping, start swapping and save the planet!
Not only will you be saving unwanted clothes from landfill but you’ll also be experiencing guilt-free retail therapy!
Bring along 1 – 10 items of good quality, laundered clothing that you no longer want and in exchange we will give you tokens to use as swapping currency.
Each piece of clothing will be assigned a value … 1, 2 or 3 tokens, dependent on the brand and condition of the piece.
1 token: Primark, Peacocks, George, Florence and Fred, TU, New Look
2 tokens: Topshop, Monsoon, Marks and Spencer, All Saints, Urban Outfitters, Zara, Mango
3 tokens: Dolce and Gabbana, Louis Vuitton, Gucci, Dior, Christian Louboutin
Swap and Chop.
As well as conventional swapping, we will also be offering an alteration service for clothes of your own or clothes that you have just swapped. Two experienced dressmakers will be on hand to give you advice about what can be achieved to customise your clothing and will be able to give a price and timescale.
Swish and Sip.
To enhance your retail experience, refreshments will be available, including alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks, nibbles and cake.
