I recently joined http://www.whatsmineisyours.com
where you can swap clothes. I received this email just, and although I don't live by Sheffield, I thought hopefully someone would like to go along:
"Whatsmineisyours.com has teamed up with the Vivienne Westwood exhibition at the Millennium gallery to bring you Sheffield's Largest Clothes Swap!
On Wednesday 13th August between 6.30pm & 9:00pm the Millennium Gallery will open its doors to swappers. This is a unique opportunity to bring items of quality unwanted clothing and swap with others, giving you a new wardrobe without splashing the cash.
Swapping, or as it's now called 'swishing', is a great way to add to your wardrobe whilst clearing out the items you no longer wear or use. It's cost effective and a fun way to get new clothes - it's eco-friendly too!
£5 ENTRY with complimentary goody bag and FREE entry to the Vivienne Westwood exhibition. "
Whatsmineisyours is not just about swapping. We have a selection of fantastic boutiques selling vintage, recycled or independently designed clothes. Todays top pick is Lois Boutique. Lo?is an independent company that promotes the recycling of clothes by creating new and unique, trend driven garments from unwanted clothing and fabrics."
"More beauty prizes up for grabs

"Sample Sales and events
Sample sale fever has hit the streets, if you are looking to pick up a bargain then head over to our events page and stop by one of the many sales or fairs we list. If you don't live near any of the locations we feature then you can also shop on-line at Koodos or Secret Sales who both offer fantastic savings on designer brands. "
Hope this helps someone,will add direct link in the next post just so you can click and have a nose.
