Monday evening I headed off with my friend Anna to the Voucher Codes Swap Shop. I couldn’t make it last year, so I was really excited to swap some unused clothes and meet people. The concept behind the swap shop is that you bring up to 5 items of clothing or accessories with you. You then get stamps, which you in turn use to purchase items that others have brought to the event. I brought 5 items and got 11 stamps, and picked up 5 items too…only to be left with more stamps! The stamp system was great and it meant that anyone could pick up a great piece for next to nothing.
Of course that wasn’t all there was at the event, oh no! There were activities and food also. Food was supplied by Mother Clucker (yes I know, that’s an awesome name) and was delicious. There were also cupcakes, pick and mix, and cocktails to nibble and slurp on whilst we mingled. A few lovely ladies from Pinned It! Made It! were there to help us DIY our own pair of tights. Of course I had to make a pair for myself, which I can’t wait to show you in an upcoming post. The amazing Twistina was also there to make us balloon creations, and leave us in awe of her skills. She made me a floral head crown, and Anna a moose – well, she is Norwegian after all.
Apart from swapping items, and having a lovely time, I met some great people! I discovered a lot of new blogs and chatted with some lovely ladies at the event. Connecting with likeminded people is one of the great joys of blogger events. Thanks so much for hosting a wonderful event Voucher Codes!
