Natalie hosted a swap party at the weekend. Swaps are a great way to declutter and recirculate unwanted gear, and you could go home with a new outfit or something useful at no cost at all. Anything left over can be donated to an op shop and nothing ends up at the tip.
So we arrived on the day with bags of clothes, trinkets and household items and were treated to a colourful afternoon tea on the lawn, before heading inside to inspect the goods. Folks are always a little reserved at first, but soon get into the spirit.
For the meagre offerings I made, I think I did quite well!
