After the success of the first ever Big Swish we have decided to run another clothes swap event on Sunday 6th September. If you have any clothes that you don't wear anymore but still have plenty of wear left in them, and you think they deserve a good home, then please come along and bring them with you! You never know, you might find something to take home whilst you're here.
11.30am - 12.30pm: Sign-up and exchange your items for tokens. 1.30pm until 3.30 pm: Clothes Swap
Please bring up to 15 items; clean and in good condition.
You can bring more if they are children's clothes.
What to bring to swap: men's, women's, children's clothes/shoes/hats etc.
Everyday items, as well as jackets and more expensive/designer items.
How it works: exchange like for like, or 3 everyday item tokens for 1 designer item/pair of shoes.
