WHY SHOULD THE GALS HAVE ALL THE FUN?
We keep getting asked, when are we going to host a clothing swap for men? Well, here goes! Who’s in?!
Whilst our gals clothing swaps are not for men to attend, we feel that you guys will be more comfortable having a female opinion around. Feel free to bring your friends or partners. Us ladies promise we won’t come in your changing area 😉
Are you hoarding tons of clothes that you never wear? After all, styles and trends change so quickly; who knows what you’re going to like a few months or even a year from now. All of those unworn clothes start to take up precious space in your closet, but just throwing them out isn’t an option. So how do you clean out your closet AND find new clothes to add to your wardrobe that you WILL wear?
Here are a few swap rules…
Guests should arrive at 6pm for set up. Swapping will begin at 6:30pm once we’ve laid everything out.
Each garment that you bring is worth one token, which can be exchanged for something else. It’s a one for one concept that makes for easy swapping. Please bring your own shopping bags to take your new loot home!
If you pick it up and try it on first – it’s yours. This rule has always worked in every swap I’ve been to. If you love it too don’t get green-eyed – just get over it and find something else! There’s always plenty of clothes to go around!
We ask that everyone label their clothing by size [this can just be a paper or tag pinned to each garment [safety pins please!]
All clothing should be clean and free of stains, holes, or major damage. It’s true that “one man’s trash is another man’s treasure,” but no one wants to be stuck with actual trash.
Please if possible drop your garments off in the days leading up to the swap as this helps immensely with the setting up.
We hope to see you there!
Please note that the swap is BYO so please bring along either something to drink or some nibbles.
Leftover clothes will be upcycled in workshops or donated to charity.
THIS EVENT IS BY DONATION!
