Is your wardrobe full of clothes that you never wear? Do you want to revamp your wardrobe for free? Simply Swap is as easy as it sounds!
Simply Swap, Glasgow's first fashion swap shop, brought to you by Playbusters’ Grow Green with Glasgow’s East End programme, gives you the chance to revamp your wardrobe for free by swapping your clean, good condition clothing and fashion accessories for others. This vibrant community space, welcome to everyone, recently moved to Dennistoun and is proving to be popular.
The first of its kind in Glasgow, Simply Swap aims to get people thinking about fun and creative ideas about what to do with fashion items that would otherwise go to waste. We have a great selection of womenswear, menswear and childrenswear to choose from and everyone is welcome in this family-friendly venue.
There are regular fun activities and free workshops for all ages where you can learn to make new items using "rubbish" like sweet wrappers, plastic bags and juice cartons. The shop itself is fitted out with reclaimed materials, with everything from clothes rails made from reused wooden pallets to a shop counter made from a bed headboard and we can even show you how we make our recycled newspaper shopping/gift bags!
Using old magazines, plastic bags and scrap fabric to make creative new items in our workshops
Drop in and get involved, see what we have to offer and find out more. You are guaranteed to receive a warm welcome from the friendly local volunteers who staff the shop. They'll be happy to help you and to explain how it all works. Don’t have any clothes to swap today? Don’t worry, we can put items on hold to give you a chance to clear out your wardrobe!
Buy nothing at Simply Swap!
