Bookings essential


  • Bring up to six quality items that are clean and undamaged.
  • Drop them off between 11:00am – 11:45am. You will be given one token for each item that you bring.
  • The swap starts at 12:00pm sharp. Participants will be allowed into the swap area and can choose any items. You can take one item for each token that you receive - e.g. if you bring four items you will get four tokens and can take up to four 'new' items.
  • Once you've chosen your 'new' items, a swap volunteer will take your tokens at the exit. Take your new items home and enjoy!
  • We will not accept items that are dirty, torn, stained or in poor condition. We will not accept items in bulk -- this is for up to six good quality items that are swapped for other items, not for items being dropped off for charity.
  • At the conclusion of the swap any remaining items will be donated to charity.
