|Last Sunday I had my very first 'Swap not shop' experience.Having picked out from the night before the clothes I wanted to swap I went at Six D.O.G.S. with a bag full of 'unwanteds'.|
I was a rookie so my friends who had arrived earlier explained me the procedure.You drop your clothes on the booth and you start digging the hills of clothes avoiding the curious hands which were like worms trying to find their food (I'm sorry for the disgusting image but that was exactly the case!).
There were fantastic pieces,labeled and non-labeled clothes,awful ones,tacky ones,for either women and men or children.
I found some really good pieces.Some suit me,others need mending and few will be destroyed as to create other stuff with its great fabric.
Here are my wholly new swapped not shopped clothes and few pictures of the event.(I wasn't able to take more pictures because I was struggling to pick some clothes.)

Next time,I will definitely go with a suitcase.Holding a big bag full of clothes from home and back is a really painful experience.
I totally recommend the event!
