Based on the 'make do and mend' spirit of World War Two, Mrs Bear's clothes swapshop invites customers to exchange their unwnted clothing, shoes and accessories for someone else's. Simply dig out 7 good condition items from the back of your wardrobe and have them graded on quality by the Mrs Bear team. You can then use coloured stamps in a retro style coupon book to swap for items on rails of the same colour. If you end up with any un-used stamps at the end of the day, simply bring your book along to the next event and pick from there. Shopping is so last season- get swapping instead.

Sounds great! I just hope there are some ladies my size (16/18) out there who've brought their stuff to swap!
I think it's a great idea. I mostly buy vintage / second hand stuff and I think it's a great way to get amazing and unique things. Regular shopping seems so boring now. The excitement of the hunt and of the unexpected is missing....5 stars from me.
Fantastic idea in these watch-every-pound times. And glad to see it's not a one-off event, but a regular stall at Spitalfields. Will start digging in wardrobe now...
