Mrs Bear’s Clothes Swap Shop


DATE: Sat 29th May 2010
LOCATION: The Britannia pub, 360 Victoria Park Road, Hackney, E9 7BT

TIME: 1pm - 4pm
(free to browse)

With everyone feeling the pinch in the current climate, Mrs Bear’s clothes swapshop is themed on a World War II "make do and mend” ethos. The simple idea being you can exchange your unwanted clothing, shoes or accessories with someone else’s. Swap your way to a new wardrobe at little cost to you and the environment! It’s also aimed at re-gaining a sense of real community whilst reducing your carbon footprint.

The clothes swapping events and “make do and mend” events are held at various locations in London with a regular last Saturday of the month at The Britannia, (thebritanniapub.co.uk) and a first Saturday of the month in Crouch End. For fair swaps we have to grade your clothes, shoes and accessories and you will receive your own coloured coupons in a WWII style ration book! So.........

Madame Swish Is Born...Cesarean Section

Disclaimer: Please note that the names and identities of individuals in this story have been changed to protect the rich and famous.

Once upon a blog…there was a young girl named Girl who lived in her house with her 2 Brothers and 2 Sisters.
With 5 sprogs, Mother was and had to be frugal. Mother wasted NOTHING. Glass jars from Jam and other produce were reused as storage; Girl thought Hand-Me-Downs was a designer label, paper was always used on both sides (loo-roll included)… let’s stop there, you get the point.

Years later Girl grew up to live in her own house. It was the very first time Girl had, had her very own bedroom… ever. After years of being in other people’s clothes and feeling like she was in other people spaces. You see, Elder Sister (Es) resented Girl’s birth and being ignored each time she screamed for Girl to: “Die, die, die”. Girl went a bit wild in her new abode buying anything she wanted until Wallet stopped whopping Yeehaa each time Girl made a purchase.

Now Girl and Wallet were no longer on speaking terms Girl knew she had to get a grip on her spending. Thankfully Girl didn’t have to look far for inspiration, not only was Mother an eco-warrior she was also a Magpie. Mother Magpie could smell a bargain from outside the shop. Mother had a way of scanning a barrel or box full of reduced items to find a gem so quickly, it put Bionic Woman to shame (and we are not talking the blush lightly kind baby, we are talking the kind that could make Bionic Woman consider steroids.)

Soon after Girl's epiphany, her good friend, The Woman Who Lived On A Boat (Twwloab) decided to have a clothes swap party. Now Twwloab’s party was delightful and very grown up. There was lots of red wine and laugh-chat. Clothes were passed around the room with frequent calls of, “Size x over here” and “Who wants this?”

Girl’s favourite colour shoes in the world are red (yes… Girl often sings “Follow the yellow brick road” in the privacy of her own home…own room yaaaay). When a pair of size 7 red heels rose from the abyss of clothes and became glued to her hands she realised there was no other way to live.

And so it began…Madame Swish was born.

March 2010 London Swaps/Swishes

Get ready to swish...for Youthnet

23 Mar 2010 18:00

Venue: The Crown Tavern, 43 Clerkenwell Green, LONDON

Get ready to swish……Spring clean your wardrobe for £5

Come and refresh your wardrobe, enjoy a few drinks and support a great charity…complete guilt free fun!!

How? Basically we all raid our wardrobes for three gorgeous pieces that you no longer wear and swap for other lovely pieces in return. Anything goes, shirts, tops, skirts, dresses, jumpers, cardies, shoes, bags, jewellery….anything you think deserves a good home.

Rules of the Rail:
1) Every lady must bring at least one good quality, clean item of clothing, or an accessory, that she\'d feel proud to hand on. Each guest receives a ticket per item to ‘buy’ other clothes
2) You will have half an hour to browse before the swish opens.
3) No item may be claimed before the swish opens.
4) As soon as the swish is declared open, everyone can ‘buy‘ items with their tickets.
5) Remember no scratching, spitting or fighting.

P.s Anything that was in the charity donation bag don’t worry too much about. Just to keep the swap as fair as possible.

Why? I’m asking for a donation of £3-5 to take part. All the money raised will go to YouthNet http://www.youthnet.org/, an online charity that supports young people at some of the most critical and vulnerable points in their lives.

Since 1995, YouthNet through TheSite.org. has been providing help, advice and information to these young people, however, times, technology and young people have changed and so must TheSite.org. This appeal aims to achieve this change and truly revolutionise online support for young people. This is also part of my Brighton Marathon appeal http://www.justgiving.co.uk/Charlotte-Hayes.

Entry fee £3

Pangea Project Sunday 17 January, 2-4pm
Swapping starts at 2.30pm 

Like throwaway fashion but know it's bad for your pocket (and the environment)!? Then we've got the perfect thing for you - a Queen of Swaps clothes swap in aid of MAG International at the Pangea Project. 

Come along with an item or two that no longer excites you (maybe it was impulse buy of diamante encrusted espadrilles that don't fit with your current sailor boy look), but might do it for someone else (a member of Priscilla Queen of the Desert cast, perhaps?)

Eat cake, drink tea, chat to fellow swappers, rummage for gems, donate to charity and leave with lots of lovely new (to you) clothes! It costs just £3 (proceeds going to MAG International) 

The rules (otherwise it will just get nasty!)

Everyone must bring at least ONE item of clothing (high street to high end and everything inbetween as long as it's in good nick); people can leave with as many items as they want
No-one can claim items before the swap starts
Don't bring anything broken beyond all repair or that is stinky. Broken zips are fine
Remember - no scratching, spitting or biting 

Any leftover/unwanted swaps will be donated to a local charity shop and/or put into the next swap.


The Big Swish in London – Clothes Swap

January 19, 2010
Venue: Tiger Tiger in Piccadilly
Tickets £6.50 in advance or £7.50 on the door

Our clothes swapping roadshow – The BIG Swish – hits London next week. We’ll be at Tiger Tiger in Piccadilly on Thursday 21st January 2010.

6.00pm – Clothes drop off begins
7.00pm – Doors open
7.30pm – Introductions by hosts Bigwardrobe.com & Daisy Green Events
7.40pm – The Phoenix Rose play live 10 minute set
7.50pm – Celebrity clothing auction for charity
8.00pm – Count down to The BIG Swish
For more information: http://www.bigwardrobe.com/TheBigSwish

Bring your clothes to the venue at the designated time, where the team will check and sort them for you. Please bring up to 15 items, (in great condition) of clothing to donate to The BIG Swish and bring your clothes on hangers. You can also bring unlimited accessories. Your clothes will be sorted into 2 areas;
1. High Street (clothing from the high street stores)
2. Premium (designer labelled goods or items which are a ‘little bit special’)
The decision will be made by the sorting team on the door. However, feel free to mark which items you think should be allocated to the Premium Area. You will receive one swishing passport for entry to the swish. If you have donated both high street and premium clothes, you will have access to both swishing areas. The number of items you have donated to will be recorded on your swishing passport and you can take the same amount of clothing and/or accessories home with you.
There will be a changing area for you to try your clothes on. You may only take the amount of clothes to try on that is shown on your swishing passport. However, you are free to re-enter these areas at any time and swap your choices for different items to take back to the changing rooms (just like most changing rooms on the high street). If you choose more items, you can make a minimum donation of £2 for each high street item and £5 for each Premium item, which will be donated to the charity.

Before leaving the clothes swish, your passport will be checked to ensure the number of items you’re taking home correspond to the items you brought with you. This is to ensure things are fair for everyone.
Please remember this is a clothing donation and there is always a chance that you will not take away as much as you have donated. But happily, this means any clothing left at the end of the event will be donated to the designated charity.
Friends can pay on the door or buy tickets online from: http://www.bigwardrobe.com/

The UK’s premiere clothing recycling website www.refashionable.com is once again hosting a clothes swap event in London.

Probably the most relaxed clothes swap event you will ever attend!

Unlike other clothes swaps we display all clothes neatly, there are changing rooms for you to try on and attendance is limited to 50 people per swap so there is plenty of room for you to browse. In addition each attendee will receive a free cotton tote bag to take their new clothes home in! 

Tickets £7.00 in advance or £8.00 on the door.

Tickets available to purchase at http://www.eventbrite.com/myevent?eid=505695549

New Location

The event starts at 7pm at The Banker, Cousin Lane EC4R3TE (http://www.allinlondon.co.uk/clubs_bars/venue-456.php). Swap will begin at 8pm so make sure you arrive promptly.

The Banker will be serving food all evening, please e-mail christine@refashionable.com for a menu.

Here’s how it works:

* Bring along between 5 and 10 items from your wardrobe you no longer need. These need to be clean and in near perfect condition – an item someone else would be delighted to receive (please no soiled or damaged clothes) 
* Hand over your items to the swaps desk on arrival in return for your swaps card on which we will give you one credit for each item you bring.
* Swapping will commence at 8pm. Each attendee will be given a Refashionable cotton tote bag to stash their goodies in. There are also toilets available for trying on clothes. 
* Items will be ticked off your swap card before you leave. You will be allowed to take the same amount of items you bring (so make sure not to misplace your swap card) 
* If you have any credits left over at the end you will be able to keep hold of your swap card and use them at another Refashionable Swap event.

For those of you who attended out last swap don’t forget to bring your swap cards with any credits you have - they are valid for this swap as well!
