Clothing Swap Shop

Vicars' Hall will be transformed into a second-hand clothing swap shop from 9.00am - 12.00pm on Saturday 4th May. 

Dive into your wardrobe and pick out a few items to bring along and discover some fabulous new things to take home! Everyone is welcome. A Fairtrade café will be offering tea, coffee and cake. Bring along a travel mug and help us reduce, reuse and recycle.

This is a partnership event with Transition Chichester. Born out of a passion for recycling and reusing and the love of finding a bargain, this simple idea is one of Transition Chichester’s big successes. No money changes hands. The fashion industry is responsible for 8-10% of our carbon emissions each year alongside its ethical challenges around workers’ human rights on farms or in factories. By recycling clothing and ‘breaking up’ with fast fashion, we can reduce our impact on the planet and save money too!

How do I get involved with the Clothes Swap?
  • We recommend bringing approximately 3 items of good quality clothing or accessories to swap on the day but please ensure that any clothes you are bringing are clean and in good condition. Pre-loved jackets, jumpers, trousers, dresses, tops, hats and scarves can be brought to swap for new favourites on an item for item basis.
  • We may say no to unsuitable items that we’ll ask you to take away yourself (No visible holes or missing buttons please)
  • Please do not bring underwear, swimwear or hosiery.
