It sounds a fun Sunday.
Swap 2 Shop Ladies Day – How it works Sunday 19 August 2012
Step 1 Go through your wardrobe and dig out good condition ladieswear, shoes, hats, bags, belts and scarves that you no longer wear.
Step 2 Bring along up to 7 swaps to The Black Hippo between 9am and 12pm* where it will be colour-graded for fair swaps:
RED: Budget labels (Asda, Primark, Peacocks etc) = 1 swap voucher
YELLOW: High St. Labels ( H&M, Topshop, Zara etc.) = 2 swap vouchers
GREEN: Higher-end High St (Reiss, Jaeger, Laura Ashley, French Connection etc.), or clothing made from expensive materials (pure silk, tweed, Angora wool, heavily beaded etc.) = 3 swap vouchers
Once you have left your items with us you will receive your clothing “swap vouchers” ready for swapping. All you need to do next is come back to the Black Hippo between 1pm and 6pm to claim your swaps (no money is exchanged, the swaps are free!).
Step 3 If you don’t manage to use up all your vouchers you can keep them for next time or even take home your unwanted swaps (provided they haven’t been snapped up already) - you choose!
We will be accepting new swops all day, however we recommend getting your items to the Black Hippo as early as you can to ensure your items get swapped. Anything that is brought to us later on has no guarantee of being swapped.
Swapping Guidelines: Please check your swaps before you bring them along and remember if they are too well worn for you, they will be for somebody else!
What we do not accept at Swap Shop: * Stained/moth-holed garments * Well-worn heels on shoes and boots * Fraying/marked hems on trousers/jeans * Bobbling knitwear and t-shirts * Garments that have shrunk in the wash * Lingerie/swimwear * Garments with broken zips *
All items left behind after the swap shop will be donated to a local charity.
