Clothing Swap FAQ
Q) What is a clothing swap?
A) Individuals bring along pre-loved garments and accessories in good condition to swap for other items of clothing. A clothing swap is a great way to spring clean your closet and freshen up your wardrobe with new pieces for summer. Bring what you have, take what you love!

Q) How do I get involved?
A) It’s easy! Just drop off your pre-loved, washed clothing to the Gallery between 28 September and 12 October. When you drop it off you will receive a wrist band that allows you entry to the clothing swap on the night.

Q) What kind of clothes should I swap?
A) Good quality, pre-loved clothing that's been washed and in good condition. We will be posting some pictures of some of the great clothes we have coming in to give you some ideas. We want clothing of all shapes and sizes, and accessories are great too!

Q) Will there be changing rooms on the night?
A) Yes :)

Q) What happens to the clothes that aren't swapped?
A) Any clothing left at the Gallery will be donated to the Red Cross and Woman's Refuge.
