About this event

An alternative to fast fashion, the Queens Clothing Swap is an opportunity to freshen up your wardrobe, connect with your community and do better by the environment.

How it works:

  • Drop off your clothes at the drop-off time
  • We give you a token for each garment
  • Return at the swap time
  • Swap your tokens for fancy new threads
  • Help save the world!

Please bring a minimum of three and a maximum of five garments. For the success of the swap it’s very important that you only bring high quality clothing - strictly no clothing that is visibly worn, is stained or is damaged.

When you drop off your clothing you will be given either a BLUE or GREEN token for each item - BLUE for blouses, shirts, skirts and pants, and GREEN for coats, jackets, dresses and higher value items. Please don’t be offended if clothing is rejected for the swap.

Changing rooms, clothes hangers and mirrors are provided, and a DJ will be playing to keep the swap bumping along.

To help manage numbers we will be running two sessions:

SESSION ONE

Monday 7th February

9:00am - 10:00am: Clothing Drop Off

10:30am - 12:00pm: Clothing Swap

SESSION TWO

Monday 7th February

12:30pm - 1:30pm: Clothing Drop Off

2:00pm - 3:30pm: Clothing Swap
