Mrs Bear's Swap Shop
Mrs Bear's Swap Shop, Press 2013
Swap your way to a spring-fresh wardrobe at this wartime themed swap-shop. Bring up to seven good quality items, and after an inspection by Mrs Bear’s team, you will receive a clothing ‘ration-book’ with coupons to swap with. Coupons are colour-graded to allow for fair-swapping – red for high street, blue for high-end – so you’ll be getting like for like. There’s a WW II list of rules to follow however: jewellery, lingerie, swimwear and glasses are not accepted, and all clothes must be in good nick to be accepted i.e. if it’s got a giant hole in it, don’t bring it.
