Reuse, reduce, and recycle are the three pillars that prompted the founding of this community event. Come along and swap your gently used clothing, shoes and accessories – or simply come and browse what’s on offer! Clothing can be new or used but must be in clean, wearable condition (no torn or stained or otherwise damaged items). Entrance fee is $5 if you bring a bag of clothes to swap, or $10 if you don’t bring any items. The fee will also enter you into a draw that will be taking place during the swap, with some great prizes on offer. See you there!
