Help out the planet!
What items can I bring?
All adult (mens’ and womens’) clothing and accessories in a presentable and wearable/usable condition is welcome at the swap. We encourage quality clothing that is clean and undamaged, with a longer potential lifespan. The ideal items are those you loved but are no longer your favourites or fit you perfectly.
How does it work?
1. Clean out your wardrobe, drawers and storage.
2. Bring all of your clothing, jewellery, shoes and items you no longer love.
3. Bring your items on hangers and place them on the racks according to their sizes and then browse the racks and take the items you'd like. You can come and go at any time you like between 11.30am and 2.00pm on the day.
All items that have not been swapped will be donated to local charities.
This event is brought to you by the Town of Cambridge.
