What is a Clothes Switch?

A Clothes Switch is one of the most sustainable ways to update your wardrobe. We curate a cash-less shopping experience out of pre-loved & vintage clothing - steaming & hanging each piece - whilst guests shop our rails with the tokens they receive upon handing in the items they bring!

How does The Big Clothes Switch work?

1. Bring up to 5 quality items from your wardrobe you no longer love

2. Trade them in for tokens depending on their quality

3. Using your tokens, shop the beautifully curated rails filled with branded, second-hand and vintage gems.

About The Book Swap Club By Natalie Glaze

The @bookswapclub is all about loving the things you already have, giving them new homes and swapping instead of buying new

The way it works - it’s very relaxed, everyone brings minimum one book (some people including my bring more) we all lay the books out and you just go around reading the backs, chatting to each other about recommendations, who brought what book would they recommend and then if one catches your eye you pick that one to keep. You swap as many books are you bring

20 free tickets available for WeWork members
