Clothes Swap [03.12.16]
Saturday, December 3, 2016 at 12:00 pm - 4:00 pm| £5.00 – £30.00
Bring all your unworn or unwanted clothes and swap them for new-to-you garms to refresh your wardrobe the eco-friendly way.
This is no second-hand clothes scrum! It’s a boutique shopping experience with a difference. Men’s, women’s and children’s clothes are welcome – it’s a family friendly event.
Enjoy the lovely relaxed and social environment of the Wonder Inn, and browse the swap rails at your leisure.
The Wonder Inn has a delicious cafe and usually has an exhibition or other event that you can check out while you’re here. Bring the family and make an afternoon of it!
Here’s how it works;
- Bring along up to 10 garments (men’s, women’s or children’s clothes). You can check in anytime between 12-3pm. Swapping begins at 12:30.
- Pay on entry and collect your swap card, if you don’t already have one.
- For each item of clothing you bring, you’ll get a stamp on your swap card. We grade clothes into two categories on arrival; Designer and High Street. You swap like for like, so a Designer item gets you another Designer item, or you can ‘swap down’ for a High Street Item.
- Browse the rails and find some clothes you love – try them on if you like!
Check out at the reception desk to get your swap card updated
If you have spare stamps at the end, you can bring them along to the next swap.
Entrance is £5 per person standard rate. Members of Stitched Up swaps get entry for £3 (membership fee £5 per year). Season Ticket holders (£30 for the year) get free entry to all swaps for a year.
Our swappers say: “This is like no other clothes swap I’ve been too, it’s like shopping in a really nice shop!”
“I’m definitely telling all my friends”
*PLEASE NOTE THE NEW VENUE* this event takes place at the Wonder Inn in Manchester City Centre, not at our HQ in Chorlton.
