Event description

Description

Cow Vintage and Inspiring Wild are hosting a free swishing event at the Digbeth store, where attendees bring along good quality unwanted clothes and accessories to swap with one another. Swishing, the posh term for clothes swapping, is an environmentally friendly way to add 'new' items to your wardrobe by offering up clothes that no longer suit your style needs in exchange for someone else's goods. For more information on how it works, go to www.getswishing.com.

The evening includes a DJ and a selection of stalls with Birmingham-based makers selling their covertable wares, and the store will also be open for regular shopping.

This is a token exchange event, where attendees can bring up to a maximum of five items to swap, and in exchange will be given tokens they can then 'spend' in the clothes swap area. The number of tokens depends upon the item, and a guide is laid out below. Clothing items not accepted are underwear, swimming costumes or bikinis, gym wear or any items that are damaged, stained or in poor condition. We will accept designer, high-end high street or vintage sportswear but not JD Sports tracksuit bottoms or tops. Accessories that are accepted are boots/shoes/trainers, bags, luggage, belts, all jewellery except earrings.

The organisers reserve the right to refuse to accept items they feel do not meet the above guidance. All items left at the end of the event will be donated to charity.

Tokens:

Designer labels (Channel, YSL, D&G ect) = 6 tokens

High-end high street (COS, Whistles, Hobbs, French Connection, Nike, adidas ect) = 4 tokens

Vintage pre-1980s = 4 tokens

Vintage 1980s/90s = 2 tokens

High street & high end internet (TopShop, Miss Selfridge, New Look, ASOS) = 2 tokens

Primark & low end internet (Pretty Little Thing, Boo Hoo ect) = 1 token
