“Swishing parties are for all those women who want to combine glamour, environmental protection and frugality” - Michelle (Fundraising Committee)
It was really great fun and they had an amazing turn out. People brought some really great items (no rubbishy old clothes). There was so much great stuff that it became quite competitive ;-) Though the MC had a coin to toss if any fights broke out (which they didn’t).
I turned some earrings, a necklace, and a few black tops into…..
A new bag, bracelets and earrings
A jazzy dress, new top and a pair of great summer pants
Plus a pair of pants and some earrings for Granny B (since I swapped two items of hers).
It was so successful that they hope to run another one before the end of the year. It's a great fundraising idea but I love that a community of women got together to recycle their clothes while saving money at the same time J
