Be Your Sass and Swoosh
January blues. We all need something to look forward to! Its cold, its wet. There is a bare hole in the corner of the living room where the Christmas tree once was. Stockings have been de hung yet your still finding wrapping paper stuffed down the side of the sofa. We are all feeling the New Year slump with our bank balance like our fridges. Sparse! Let me give you something to look forward to…………….were having a Swoosh! That's right me and the glorious Camilla from Pink Peach Cake Company www.facebook.com/pinkpeachcakecompany/
we have joined forces to create a community clothes swapping event!
A Swoosh, but whats a Swoosh i hear you yell!? A swoosh is a community clothing swap. A chance for you to be out with the old and in with the new. There is no better time than a new year! An opportunity to reduce your wardrobes, recycle your unwanted clothing and re-love someone else's wares. We all know the saying someones trash is another's treasure!
We all have those items in our wardrobe that may not fit us anymore or we simply just don't wear. They may be too special to donate and your left with clothing cluttering your world, what better time to start a fresh and get a new look. i'm thinking......Makeover!! (said in girly rom com movie styley!) It is free to swoosh although there will be a £5 entrance fee. A fiver for a bag of clothes! Winning!
So how does it work, what do you need to swoosh? Simply bag up ,up to 15 good quality clean items of clothing. Anything from shoes to jumpers and bring them along to our community swoosh at The Columba Centre St Columb Major on 1st February. Clothing drop off is from 2pm. Once you have handed in your wares we will sort organise and hang all your garments. We will provide you with a stamped swooshing card with the number of items you can collect.
Whilst you await the swooshing sit and enjoy a cup of something hot and a slice of something sweet all courtesy of Pink Peach Cake Company pop up cafe. She will have delicious home baked cakes and sweet treats for you to splurge on! She is a girl after my own heart, loves clothing, rocks leopard print and has an ethical attitude towards clothing. I adore her fashion sense and well her cakes are too bloody die for! So excited to be finally working together!
You will also have a chance to Shop from my Be Your Sass pop up shop. I will have a rail of pre loved high street clothing all on sale! Then when the clock strikes 4pm, its 'swooshin' time!
You can collect the same items of clothing that you donated. See your swooshing card!
One stamp equates to one item. Feel free to try on items. Any excuse for a cat walk!
branding and quality are all checked and all items are equal.
Swooshing is a great way to update your wardrobe, get clothing for little money and together reduce clothing waste. Every swoosh will be different. We are going to be holding themed swooshes for specific clothing. Children's clothing swoosh, men's only swoosh. watch this space with the idea of our swooshes turning into events where there will be a chance to shop sustainable with there also being up cycled items from local makers and businesses! follow @beyoursass and @pinkpeachcakecompany for all the latest news and event information.
We look forward to seeing you at the swoosh
