Event Details

Hello swappers,


I'm Victoria, your brand new Melbourne host for The Clothing Exchange. It's my pleasure to announce that our next big swap is only a few weeks away, on Monday 9th December at Deakin Edge, Federation Square.

Some of you may have seen me around the past few swaps, learning the ropes from the lovely Olivia, who has been your very capable, very savvy Melbourne host for the past year. If you want to see what Olivia is up to next, head to her fabulous blog – a guide to money for us modern girls: www.prettypenny.com.au/


It might not feel like it just yet, but the hot languid days of summer are surely just around the corner. No doubt you are just starting to unpack your boldest frocks and sweetest sarongs, and maybe uncovering those gorgeous rimmed hats, raffia clutches or towering wedges.

Perhaps you're fretting over what to wear to your Christmas drinks, or you need a divine new dress to debut on NYE. What better time than at the start of the silly season to exchange some old treasures for new ones?

RSVP via the link below, and get ready for a perfectly timed (and perfectly sustainable) wardrobe update! I'm so looking forward to meeting you and seeing all the beautiful swappable garments you've been collecting in the meantime.


Happy swapping! xx

BRING

The Clothing Exchange helps fashion lovers satisfy their quest for wardrobe treasures in a way that is easy on the environment and the bank balance.

Swappers to bring up to 6 items of value they no longer wear to trade for garments they will love, solving the problem of “a closet full of clothes but nothing to wear”.

Check in starts promptly at 6:30 pm, and the swap kicks off at 7 pm.

Our lovely volunteers quality control all garments to make sure you take home only the best!


** What to Swap?
------------------------------------------------------------

To ensure a high quality swap for all, please abide by the swapping guidelines.
* 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 – ie. would you be happy to give or receive these items as a gift
* Items should be free of faults or with minor faults that are easy to repair (e.g. a missing button)
* You should be emotionally detatched from them!

Note: We do not accept anything pilled, pongy, marked or too far from perfect. We do not exchange undergarments, swimwear, or tracksuits.


** Swapping Tips
------------------------------------------------------------

1. Patient swappers go rewarded because as the first flurry of trying on garments passes, the real gems find their way back on the racks. Like regular shopping, it's never the garment you thought would suit - it's the one you almost didn't try that fits like a glove.

2. Speaking of gloves, don't forget our accessories department as this attracts some of our finest donations and in the case of jewels, bags or scarves, sizing is not often a challenge.

3. If you'd like a hand, don't hesitate to call in the help of our lovely volunteers who are happy to take on the role of personal shopper.

4. If you have a spare button or two, consider swapping for a friend, sister or niece and surprising them with a treat.
