I was invited from our friends in Big Shwop for their second Big Shwop Summer special at the Southern Cross Bar last Saturday. Around hundred Shwoppers joined the event which started at 2PM with free wine from Momo.
Thank you to Inga and Sarah Hopkins and to all volunteers
According to Sarah, due to growing popularity of the idea,the shwoppers need to pre-register online to secure their place during the event.
What is a Shwop?
Sarah said, Big Shwop brings together girls and their wardrobes for an afternoon of shopping – shopping that doesn’t make a dent on your bank account or your conscience.
She added , the idea is a simple one – girls bring along their unwanted, barely worn quality clothes and exchange them for vouchers.
“When the shwop begins, girls can ‘cash in’ their vouchers for any of the other lovely threads on offer. It’s free, fun and truly fair trade!”, She explained.
The Event was a big successl and lots of fun for the Shwoppers and Sarah told me that they have a big plan to do this similar event to other parts of New Zealand. CLick here to check the Video
So , see you next Big Shwop!!!.
