Week. Get rid of clothes taking up your precious cupboard space and
collect some new, pre-loved clothes for free!

You will be given buttons as your currency depending on how many
items you bring. Please arrive at check-in time and hand over your
clothes for us to “set up show”! Remember the golden rule of quality
– only bring items you’d happily give to a friend.
