12noon – 2pm Clothes drop off:

Bring your clothes, shoes or accessories to the swishing area and drop them off, you will receive a stamp for each item (minimum 1, maximum 5)

2.30pm Browsing time:

Take time to browse the goodies on display – look, but no touching until the Swish begins

3.00pm Swishing officially opens:

There will be a brief introduction to the Swish and it will then be declared open for you to start swishing.

The Rules

  • Bring at least 1 good quality item of clothing, shoes or accessories that you no longer wear but would be proud to pass onto a fellow Swisher – no rags please!
  • You can bring up to 5 items, you will recieve a stamp for each, so feel free to take as many items as you brought along.
  • You will have time to browse the rails and look at the fantastic free goodies on display – but remember, you cannot claim these items until the swish is officially open!
  • Once declared open, swish to your hearts content! Remember, be kind to your fellow Swishers…no scratching, spitting or biting!
  • Have fun!
