Are you tired of staring at a closet full of clothes and feeling like you have nothing to wear? Are you passionate about sustainable fashion and reducing textile waste? Look no further, because we have the perfect solution for you! Introducing the Kumeu Clothing Swap & Shop event, where you can refresh your wardrobe, save money, and contribute to a greener planet.
We are a community women’s clothing swap and sale, run by passionate locals and a dedicated team of volunteers. Our mission is to promote community and sustainability, as well as make good quality clothing accessible to everyone. All profits raised go to Parent Aid North West, a charity who do the most incredible work supporting local families with young children when they need it most.
So, what exactly is a clothing swap? It’s a fun and eco-friendly gathering where women come together to exchange their gently used garments, accessories, and shoes. Instead of buying new items, you’ll have the opportunity to breathe new life into pre-loved fashion treasures, making your style truly one-of-a-kind. By participating in a clothing swap, you actively contribute to reducing textile waste and minimizing your carbon footprint. It’s a small step towards a more sustainable future.
Our 2023 EVENT will be held at the Big Sheds, Kumeu Showgrounds on Sunday 10th September, 10am – 4pm.
