The Sharp Project Clothes Swap
On Thursday 23rd January we’re hosting the first Sharp Project clothes swap in Stage One. It’s a chance to gain some new wardrobe items by swapping some of your unworn clothes! Any items not swapped will be donated to local charity shop Age UK.
Please note this event is for tenants only however if you would be interested in future clothes swaps, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Dropping off your items
Please drop off your items for the clothes swap in Blue 55 on the following dates (there will be a sign on the door):
- Thursday 16th Jan, 12-2pm
- Friday 17th Jan, 12-2pm
Please bring up to 10 items and ensure that any items you bring are in a good, clean, gently worn condition.
Please do not bring any of the following:
- Underwear including tights/socks/leggings
- Gym wear
- Pierced jewellery
When you donate, we will write down what items you have brought and ask you to sign to confirm what you have dropped off.
We have a separate Gold category for any high-end/designer items. These will be labelled separately at the swap with a Gold sticker and can only be traded for other Gold items on the day.
Once we have sorted through donations, we will contact you via email to let you know if you are eligible for any gold tokens. If you have donated a Gold item and only want to swap for a regular item on the day, that’s fine – however if someone wants to take a Gold item on the day they will need to show that their token has an additional gold sticker on it from them donating a designer item themselves.
On the day
The clothes swap will be taking place in Stage One from 12-2pm on Thursday 23rd January. Please bring your own bag to take your new items home with you. When you arrive, give your name and you will be handed the number of tokens you are eligible for (e.g. 5 items dropped off = 5 tokens).
After you have signed in, feel free to browse around. If you would like to try on clothes, please let a member of staff know and they will direct you to the nearest place to get changed. Once you have picked your items, please bring them back to the sign in desk where your items will be counted, and tokens will be taken back.
Friendly reminder: Please be aware you will not be able to reclaim the clothes you bring in. Be prepared for them to be picked up by their new owner and given a new home!
