F is for Fashion Swaparoo

I’ve always loved the idea of swapshops, and I have just discovered the sumptuous Cox & Baloney in Bristol host a Swaparoo every month!

If you aren’t a native Bristolian, or one of the many students loitering around Gloucester Road (good for us!), here is a brief description of Cox & Baloney, from an article I wrote in the Western Eye newspaper:

Yes, so every month this wonderful boutique and tea-room holds a swaparoo! This month’s is next Tuesday, 1st May.

I am certainly going. If you would like to go, all you need to do is find up to 7 items of good-quality clothing that you no longer want, and take them into C&B this week before Friday. They will give you little tokens that represent different values, and then next Tuesday, simply pay £5 entrance fee, and then use these tokens to shop till you need tea, and then they give you some. And cake. There is no excuse not to go!

Anyway, I can’t quite express how divine this shop is. So I’ve been naughty and borrowed some photos from their website. Hope to see you there!

    1. I’m really glad you like it! I always find it hard trying to describe to people what it’s about – bit of a mix and match. And thankyou! I think it’s William Morris but don’t quote me on that… haha I LOVED your blog, I’ve put it on my ‘Delicious Blogs’ list on the right hand side, because it’s just my cup of tea 🙂

  2. Hi! I found you via my group on IFB :)!

    I’ve never actually been to a swapshop before, but it sounds like a really cool idea! I live in London, so I’m assuming there must be some around here somewhere?! This post has definitely made me want to look into it! I hope if I find one, they offer tea and cake like this one 🙂

    I’d love it if you could check out my blog too, and if you like it, follow me! I follow back 🙂
