Come to Greenmystyle’s charity clothes swap party
July 29, 2009 by greenmystyle
Greenmystyle.com is co-hosting a charity clothes swapping party in London’s super chi-chi East Dulwich in August, and take it from us the booty from the stylish gals that live in that zone will be second to none.
Have you discovered clothes swapping yet? No? Where have you been?! It’s the single most eco-boosting, credit-cunching way to get your hands on a totally new wardrobe, all the better when that wardrobe was pre-loved by another urban style queen. We’re not talking old tat here, ladies.
The clothes swapping party will be held on Sunday 9th August at The Lodge, Lordship Lane, East Dulwich, to raise money and awareness for Bowel Cancer UK. Party co-host, designer Vic Tristram recently supported a close relative through this disease.
The doors will be open at 4pm to take deliveries. Bring along any unwanted items of clothing, shoes or accessories. It can be anything from an outdated pair of high-top 80s sneakers or the latest bag that just didn’t go with that all-important outfit. Chances are, someone else will love it.
When you submit your items, you’ll be given the same number of tickets in return, each ticket entitles you to one swap item. If you’re unable to bring any items or want to take more home than you brought, then “swap” tickets will be also on sale. All proceeds will be donated to Bowel Cancer UK.
You’ll then have an hour or so to hit the bar, before the swap begins at 5.30pm. What else could you wish for on a Sunday afternoon?
There is a small £5 entry fee/donation to the charity at the door, entitling you to one raffle ticket, which could see you win a fantastic beauty spa voucher and half a day’s free gardening work, amongst other treats. We’ve seen the gardener and we’d recommend you ask him to take his shirt off while he works!
