Dreaming of a new wardrobe, need to make some room in your existing cupboard first, but don't have much more than pocket change? We've all been there. On March 11, the solution is simple. Just pick up to ten of your own unwanted items that could use a new home, rustle up a gold coin and head to one of five Brisbane hangouts.
That's how the inaugural Collaborative Clothes Swap works, and it couldn't be easier. Taking place at Avid Kitchen and Garden, Brown's General Store, Southside Tea Room, Sun and Company, and The Low Road, it'll turn two hours of your Sunday afternoon into a preloved shopping frenzy, with the swapping going down between 12.30-2.30pm.
There are a few ground rules, of course. You'll get a ticket for each item you bring, and you'll be able to then swap that for something new. And, don't bring along something in a state you wouldn't be happy with yourself. Other than that, your entry fee will be given to a women-focused charity of the venue's choosing, and any leftover items will be given to a charity as well.
