The Thread Trade Clothing Exchange

Gather the girls! Rummage through your wardrobe and bring your pre-loved items along to our first clothing exchange!

What to bring:

Bring 5 to 10 pre-loved garments, shoes or accessories along with you to our trading event! They should be of high quality with the potential to live a long happy life in the hands of their new owner. Vintage, designer, local, high street or hand made, we will swap them all. Having a wide variety keeps the swap exciting! Your items should be clean, washed, pressed and ready for swapping. We do not accept swim wear or lingerie.

How it works:

On arrival your items will be quality screened to ensure a fair swap. They will then be exchanged for tokens which will be the currency you use in order to purchase your new wardrobe. You will receive one token per one quality item.

Our team will set up shop whilst you meet and mingle with your fellow swappers. Make sure to make good use of the grazing table and the selection of drinks provided! We are a BYO venue so please feel free to bring a bottle of your own. We will have a brief introduction and give the low down for our first time swappers and then we shall let the shopping commence!

We ask once you have found your first 3 items, if need be, you try them on in our fitting room, make a final decision and continue shopping. Our volunteers will put your unwanted items back on the shop floor which will allow everyone to have the chance to find something they will treasure.

Once you have finished swapping you can make your way to our check out and exchange your tokens for your new collection!

Please note you will not be able to change your mind once your donated items have been added to the shop floor. All items left at the end of the swap will be donated to charity and all unused tokens must be returned.
