If, like me, you’ve got a wardrobe jam-packed full of clothes that are just too small to fit you, then you’re in luck as Stitched Up bring their boutique Clothes Swap to Stretford Public Hall this Saturday 23rd October.

They’ve split the day up into two time slots, where you can bring all of your unworn or unwanted clothes to swap them for ‘new-to-you’ garms to give your wardrobe a spruce up in a cost-effective and eco-friendly way.

Both men’s and women’s clobber is accepted, and here’s what you need to do:

        • Bring along up to 10 garments.
        • Head on down to Stretford Public Hall at your allocated time slot.
        • When you enter you’ll be given a ‘Stamp Card’. Each item of clothing you bring – you’ll get one stamp on your card.
        • Your clothes will be split into two categories: GREAT (designer, vintage and high-end high street) and GOOD (high street and everything else).
        • The swaps will be like-for-like, so a GREAT item gets you another GREAT item, or you can swap down for a GOOD item if you like.
        • Browse the rails and find some clothes you love – try them on if you like!
        • Check out at the reception desk to get your swap card updated

If you have spare stamps at the end, you can bring them along to the next swap. If you have stamp cards from before the lockdown, these cards will be valid for you to use.

That’s it. Nice and simple. All you have to do is turn up with some clobber at your designated time slot and you’re good to go!
