We encourage you to bring up to 10 of your fashion finest items including garments, shoes and accessories.
Swapping works best when there is a high standard of quality ensuring everyone takes home something they're happy with. With this in mind, we have some quality control standards in place for all our events.
• Items should be clean, folded or pressed
• Items should be of good quality with a long potential lifespan
• Items should be likely to be valued by others – ask yourself, would I be happy to give this item to a friend?
• Items should be free of faults or with minor faults that are easy to repair (for example, a missing button).
The best items to swap are good quality garments that you once loved but are no longer your favourites or perhaps no longer fit you perfectly. This way, you’re giving them a second life with someone new who will treasure them. Whatever you swap, please make sure to are emotionally detached from the item, as once it has been swapped you cannot change your mind.
*Note: At our events we have quality screening processes and do not accept anything pilled, pongy or too far from perfect. We do not exchange undergarments or swimwear. If you would like to bring garments or textiles not suitable for swapping, we will facilitate recycling for you.
