Want to find a new way to shop sustainably? Welcome to the Swap Shop! Swap your unwanted, but great condition, clothes, homeware and more ♻️

About this event

Do you have a black bin bag of clothes waiting to be uploaded to eBay? Are you swamped in styles that you don't wear anymore but want to find a good home for? Would you like to update your wardrobe for the new season, but in a more sustainable way that helps reduce waste too?

Come to our Clothes Swap event at Westow House in Crystal Palace and exhange your unwanted items for gorgeous new-to-you pieces and save yourself the time and hastle of online selling! You loved our last three Swaps, they were all sell-out events! So we wanted to host another in time for Secondhand September.

WHAT DO I DO ON THE DAY?

At 9am: Drop your goods off to us at Westow House. We’ll then inspect each item, steam it and hang it up ready for you to browse, and “credit” you for each item of yours you bring. We expect a queue, so if you don't want to wait we advise arriving promptly at 9am.

At 11pm: We'll then get the room set-up and organised, hanging everything on rails and putting it into sections. Use this time to meet friends, enjoy brunch or Lunch in Crystal Palace where the event is taking place. We'd recommend heading downstairs at Westow House for brunch. Their new menu is great, and they're dog-friendly.

At 12pm: You return upstairs to Westow House from 12pm when you can start swapping! It's first-come-first-serve. These events can be busy. Use your "credits" to swap for new clothes and accessories. Any remaining credits will remain on our system to be used at future events. You'll still need to purchase a ticket for future events.

At 1.30pm: The Swap Shop will close.
