Looking through my wardrobe this morning, I see a lot of awesome stuff. Stuff that I’ve simply never worn – you know, impulse purchases (on sale, obviously) that I’ve just never gotten around to taking out of the bag. Shoes still in their boxes. Belts, earrings, shirts and skirts. Necklaces, scarves, and jackets still with the swing-tags on. Other stuff that I’m just over. Stuff that’s still in excellent condition, that just lies neglected in my cupboard, taking up space.
So I had me a little idea, after seeing some girls (I can’t, for the life of me, remember who, exactly – and if you could refresh my memory, that would be awesome) tweeting about meeting up with all their unwanted clothing/shoes/accessories, and having a swap. And donating everything that’s left over, to charity. And that got me thinking. Why don’t we do something like that, online?
Once a month, we all get together (on our blogs, of course) and we each do a post containing items that we have that we’d be willing to swap (pictures/sizes/measurements and honest descriptions of condition/age/retail price), and maybe a list of things we’re looking to swap those items for.
I’d do a post putting the links all in one place, making it easier for people to browse from a central point and people interested in swapping your goods for theirs, can simply leave you a comment on your post, and then get in touch with you to arrange the swap. The swap can happen either in person, or via the postal service, if you’re not in the same city…Just think about it – you could be clearing out space for new additions to your wardrobe and every month you could be getting new, exciting, previously-loved (or brand-new) handbags/jackets/blouses/dresses/accessories etc etc.
If this is something you’d be interested in participating in, please leave me a comment below…. 🙂
