At the weekend I ended my first clothes swapping event. 'Swop 'n' Shop' was a chance to take along 3 items of clothing to swap with new ones, held in aid of the Red Cross at the lovely Silk Mill Museum in Derby. It's a fantastic space which I'd not visited since a school trip as a child. It was strange seeing some of my old dresses being snapped up by people, but a nice feeling that they were going to a good home!
On Sunday I met some friends at the Arboretum for the Green Festival, and it was even hot enough for ice creams! As we seem to be having the worst Summer (and Spring) weather ever this came as a lovely surprise!
Excited clothes swappers!
