Clothes Swap 2

On Saturday my sister held another clothes swap. This time there were five of us and we were a little more selective on the clothes we bought. Plus my sister made us a proper tea party beforehand. So below we have, homemade carrot cake (yummy, yummy, yummy) chocolate brownies, ham sandwiches and cucumber sandwiches, tea and pink bubbles. It was lovely and a great way to start the afternoon's fun.

And then on to the clothes swap. Lovely piles of pretty things which were all like new. We tried, some worked, some not so well. And then we did a sales session, who wanted what. Again we were somehow very good at not arguing over who got what, one coin toss solved that all.

I got two news scarves and two new tops. Really nice, handy for winter and of course I got rid of some bits and bobs as well. Which is always good in a tiny house in London!

So sister is planning another one in Spring, twice a year for the seasons. And more 'new' clothes every now and then with no guilt. Any questions about how we did it let me know.

Before I moved to America I was part of a clothes swap circle in London. Such a great idea. LLGxx

LLG - A clothes swapping circle sounds great, more people, more choice, less pressure to bring loads of things. And it is good fun.

Brazen - If you were in London, or me in South Africa :) But maybe you should think about holding a party too? Or encourage your friends to...

I would love to go to one but I don't think I have anything I could get rid off that people would want. Everything that is designer or vintage I want to keep!
