Trade Your Unwanted “Garms” at the Swish Event in Hampton, Saturday 18th May


On Saturday 18th May at 1pm- 3.15pm at Curves in Hampton you have the opportunity to trade your unwanted clothes for some new little numbers with other local funkymothers, what a great idea!  Drop off: 1:00pm – 2:00pm Swish from: 2.15pm – 3.15pm

Curves Hampton 77-81 Station Road Hampton TW12 2BJ

Estimates suggest that each of us in the UK throws away £400 worth of clothes every year, around half of these are rarely worn, and in some cases have never been worn! So instead of just throwing them away, why not give your clothes a new home and pass them on? You’ll get new items for your wardrobe and you won’t even need to bring your purse with you!

Come to the Curves Hampton Gym to swish your clothes, shoes and accessories with like-minded people on Sat 18th May. Swishing is an fun eco-way to update your wardrobe without spending any money. Every person attending the event is required to bring in up to 10 items to be allowed to take something from the Swish. Items are then swished item for item, as you will be given a token for each item brought in which is then used to get new items.

Swish Rules

  • Each person must bring at least one good quality item of clothing, shoes or accessories in a good and clean condition to be allowed to take something from the event
