About the event

Did you know that each year an estimated £140m worth of clothing is sent to UK landfill? We all need to take urgent action and here's how you can help! 

Join us for our Broadway Bar Bazaar Swap Shop on Sat 15 Oct at The Broadway Bar, Tolworth.

This is a fantastic opportunity to help avoid unnecessary waste and support the circular economy, while adding something new to your wardrobe. There'll also be a selection of local traders, so it's also a great way to buy gifts and support small local businesses. 

How the swap shop will work:

You can drop off the items of clothing you want to swap (a maximum of 8 items per person) from 8.30am on Saturday or bring them along with you before 3pm. You will then receive your swap booklet, which contains your stamps – one for each item you want to swap.

Then from 10am, when the main swap shop and bazaar officially open, you can browse all the items and exchange your stamps for something that's new to you!

Just a few rules…

  • You can swap women’s, men’s and/or children’s items.
  • We will accept good quality, clean and re-usable clothing and accessories (including footwear).
  • If you’re in any doubt, please only bring items in a condition that you would want to wear/buy yourself or you would be happy for a friend to use.
  • We won’t accept underwear or swimwear (unless it's brand new with a tag).
  • Please don’t bring any more than 8 items.
  • All items will be assessed by volunteers and made ready to display (please make sure you definitely want to part with your items before bringing them in!).
  • We can refuse any items that do not meet our re-use criteria, please don’t be disappointed.
  • We will operate a system of honesty and trust.
  • Finally, please bring your own carrier bags for your swapped items.
  •
