Pop-up Clothes Swap

Saturday 22nd Feb
10am – 1pm

Less like a market, more like fun and cozy time with friends. Picture; racks of unique and awesome clothes that are financially accessible to you, a totally accepting environment for you to be and express your gender and identity, kind and interesting people, free style advice and tailoring of any treasures you find.

For all LGBTQIA + all other humans with queer sensibilities. We aim to curate the collection (as much as we can) to accommodate a wide range of sizes, styles, gender and identity expressions. Bring the things that no longer excite or express you, swap it for something new – or bring cash to buy things you like (no eftpos).
