The Great Swansea Clothes Swap
Swap till you drop this summer!
For those of us looking to update our wardrobes there is a new craze sweeping the nation which could be the answer to all our shopping dilemmas - and it starts with the Great Swansea Clothes Swap.
On Saturday 24 July the swap will give you the chance to clear out unwanted items from your wardrobe and reward yourself with new pieces simply by swapping what you no longer need for something you really want.
Preparations kick off at 12pm. Come along and drop off your unwanted items in exchange for tokens. All items will be sorted and racked accordingly, then at 6pm, doors will re-open and the swapping will begin!
Any items left at the end of the evening will be donated to cancer charity, Tenovus to sell in their stores.
Entertainment will be provided by Swansea-based Women in Jazz and the Museum’s café will be open for you to refresh either before or after your swapping spree.
1. Buy your ticket in advance
Tickets are £7.50 per person and are available from http://www.greatswanseaclothesswap.co.uk/ or the Environment Centre, Pier Street, Swansea.

Bring at least three unwanted, clean and wearable items from your wardrobe that you would be proud to pass on - these can include accessories and shoes, but no underwear, swimwear or earrings.

Bring back your tokens and get ready to find your new summer wardrobe!
