Clothes, book swap at the Fair Share Festival


Tired of what’s in your wardrobe? Read everything in the bookshelf? Don’t go shopping for new things, come to the Fair Share Festival’s book and clothing swap on Saturday November 12 at Hamilton Public School.

The festival is all about sharing – so we’re asking visitors to bring along up to 10 items of clean good quality second hand clothes or books to exchange. The swap desk will be accepting items from 9.30am.

You’ll be given tokens that can be used at the swap shop, which is open between 2pm and 5pm, and given back your bags so you have something to put your new items in.

And from 3.30pm, the swap shop opens up to those who might like to purchase something but didn’t bring along any swap items.

If you have clothes that have interesting features but might not be suitable for the clothing swap, bring them along and learn how to upcycle them at the beginner or intermediate  textile upcycling workshop, or at the sewing lounge. Bookings essential.  

You could end up with a whole new wardrobe, or bookshelf.
