Great Gong Clothes Swap

The Great Gong Clothes Swap is almost here and it is time to start sorting through your wardrobe and ask yourself…… ‘Will I ever wear this again?

It’s all about clearing out and letting go of those favourite items that don’t get worn and swapping them for ‘new’ ones. It’s shopping in a sustainable way!

Supported by Lifeline South Coast.

What Can You Swap – Adult Clothing Only

You can swap up to 35 items (if pre dropped prior to the event or 25 items on the day) of clothing including hats, belts and shoes.

Items need to be good quality with no rips, pilling, stains or broken zips.

Your items will be screened for suitability.

  • Only adult sized clothing accepted.
  • Items should be clean,folded or pressed.
  • Items  must be free of faults or with minor faults that are easy to repair (concessions are made for vintage wear).
  • Items you are no longer emotionally attached to!
  • We will be unable to accept items that are badly pilled, smelly or straying too far from perfect.
  • Undergarments and swimwear will not be included in the swapping process.

Does it need to be designer?

No. All labels are created equal in the eyes of The Great Gong Clothes Swap.

Why attend the Great Clothes Swap?

Why shop when you can swap!! The opportunity to swap means you are reducing consumption, reusing items that may have otherwise gone into landfill and recycling old into new.

And it’s fun with a great sense of community.

What about my un-swapped items?

If you don’t walk away with the same number of items you came in with you can:

  • grab some garments to gift to others.
  • enjoy the extra space in your wardrobe
  • feel good that your items are being loved by someone else
