Unwanted Christmas socks? Wardrobe need a refresh? Sick of fast fashion? Trying *not* to buy clothes but love the thrill of something new?

Join us in the upstairs bar for the BIG STRONGROOM CLOTHES SWAP!

:::::::::::: ::: ::: ::::::::: :::::::: :::::::::::: ::::::::::: :::::: :::::::::::::: ::: :: ::: ::

1. Bring your once-loved items in and swap them for BUTTONS.

2. Shop the collection! (The upstairs bar & kitchen will be open for sustenance / lubrication / caffeine while you browse!)

3. Use your buttons to ‘buy’ your new treasures.

4. Enjoy!

:::::::::::: ::: ::: ::::::::: :::::::: :::::::::::: ::::::::::: :::::: :::::::::::::: ::: :: ::: ::

Buttons will be allocated accordingly:

ONE BUTTON EACH: vests / singlets / t-shirts / leggings / belts / ties / scarves / jewellery & other accessories

TWO BUTTONS EACH: shirts / skirts / dresses / trousers / shorts / light jumpers / hoodies

THREE BUTTONS EACH: blazers / coats / jackets / woollen jumpers

All items should be clean and in good condition. A few imperfections here and there are fine, but no major sewing projects please!

In addition to clothes we will also be accepting BOOKS and POTTED PLANTS:

ONE BUTTON EACH: Books / small potted plants (teacup-sized or smaller pots)

TWO BUTTONS EACH: Medium/large potted plants (mug-to-jug-sized pots)

All clothes and books leftover at the end of the day will be donated to Mind for sale in their charity shops.

Any leftover jackets and coats will be donated to a homeless shelter.

Entry is £5 on the door. To maximise the experience and choice for everyone, we recommend arriving early rather than late!

All funds raised will go to MIND ♥ ♥
