Norwich's own 'Frock Swap'
05 Apr 2011 18:00
Venue: Unthank Arms, Norwich
Drop off your fashion items on the day of the event at the venue anytime between 6pm - 8pm. However, we are at the venue from 12 noon setting up, so we suggest if you have more than 10 items you which to bring to the swap, that you pop in during the day, this will help stop long queues and waiting when the doors open, plus you will see a sneak preview at what is too come!
All items must be in either good condition, worn once, new or as new. All items must be clean and undamaged. Everybody ‘swapping’ at the event wants to take home items they WILL wear and be proud of their ‘new’ items so the condition of the items is very important in making sure everyone is happy.
Do bring: Tops, Shirts, Jackets, Jumpers, Cardigans, Smart Shorts, Trousers, Skirts, Dresses, Handbags, Shoes, Belts, Scarves & Jewellery
Don’t Bring: Casual T-Shirts, Vests, Sportswear, Underwear, Casual Shorts, Leggings, Purses or Key-rings
All your items will be graded and awarded points based on their wear-ability and not on brand. The points you have been awarded can then be used for items available at the swap. Points start from 1 point and the maximum is 10 points per item.
We do ask that you confirm your attendance via phone, text, email or FACEBOOK message so we know how many ladies will attend.
You pay for your entrance ticket when dropping off your items. You will receive a fashion card stating the points you have earned from the items you have brought.
The event begins from 6pm and ends at around 9pm, so you can turn up anytime between 6 and 8 pm, the longer you are there the longer you will have to browse all the items that will be available. Its normally popular for a group of friends to come together around 6pm, check in their items and get their points, browse for a while, have a drink, chat and something to eat then browse some more! As ladies keep arriving it will keep adding to the items available so there is always lots and lots of items to browse!
The ‘Swap / Swish’ will be at 8.30pm. This is the official time for you to select your items on a first come first served basis. The swish is a fair way for everyone to have seen everything available. There has never been any fighting and all our ladies are very well behaved with plenty of decorum! Once you have ‘grabbed’ your desired items you proceed to one of our checkout desks where the points of your selected items will be added up and deducted from the points you were awarded earlier on in the evening when you ‘checked in’. Any unused points will be reserved for future events you wish to attend.
