  1. Hi,
    My friend and I were wondering if we need to register for the clothes swap? And how does it work?!
    We are excited!

  2. Hi Laura, We have just made a Facebook Event – and it’s now entry by gold coin donation.
    We invite everyone to come and bring whatever clothes they have to give away. We will then ask people to add their clothes to the racks provided to make a bit of a “shop” and then people can go around and find choose some different clothes to take home. 😉
