On the evening of the Swap-Party, which starts at 18h30, you are invited to bring along at least 3 items of clothing or accessories, but no more than 8, all of which must be clean and in excellent condition. Whilst you enjoy your welcome drink, the organizers will label the items and allocate each a number of points, according to their potential value. Depending on the number of points your articles receive, you will be given Swap money to spend on other items brought to the event. For example 1 Zara T-shirt may be worth 1 Swap coin, whilst a Mango coat may be worth 2 Swap coins. Click here to read our article in full.
