We are excited to announce our second installment of our Pop Up Fashion Exchange Boutique at Gayfield Creative Spaces! From Monday May 4th - Sunday May 10th, you are invited to come along to our shop and "Swop" your unwanted clothes with us, anytime during our opening hours (Mon - Sun 10am - 6:30pm, Thurs open till 8pm)
We carry current trends, designer fashions, vintage and contemporary second hand items, all in great condition at bargain prices. Exchanging your fashion offers a refreshing new way to sustainably source new additions to your tired wardrobe. It's a great opportunity to come home with lots of “new to you” clothes that, in their second-hand nature, allow all of one's shopping finds guilt-free!

The concept of clothing exchanges performing “buy-sell-trades” in-store, and on-the-spot, is common in America and slowly spreading into other parts of the world. Companies like Buffalo Exchange and Plato's Closet across America, Beacon's Closet in NY, and SWOP emerging in Australia, have enjoyed long-term growing success over the years, proving that there is a place in the world and a definite desire for stores of this kind. We are excited to be the first of it's kind in Edinburgh, and look forward to being a platform to the idea of a sustainable new way of shopping for your clothes.
"In a future where natural resources will become increasingly scarce and costly, using platforms to share and exchange clothes will become increasingly popular...Fast-fashion isn’t going away anytime soon but perhaps ‘fast-use’ can be more sustainable if we re-imagine the business model." (Nerida Lennon, Guardian, 2015)
'The best way to make a contribution in fashion is to promote the idea that a fundamental interest in preserving the environment is itself fashionable.' Giorgio Armani
