London Swap Shop 2014

March 2, 2014

Last week I attended my first Swap Shop. It was great fun: I got to see plenty of friends, meet other girls, do fun activities and swap some unused clothes for other new to me things! It was very simple: we all brought in 5 items and got stamps in return. We then got to pick what we liked and redeemed the stamps. Simples!

I had a great time and decided that this must have been one of the events I’ve had most fun at so far. I’ll be wearing my new-to-me clothes very soon!
