Southampton Clothes Swaps are bringing their next event to a Portswood café on August 26.

The August swap will be BySea Coffee Lounge at 468 Portswood Road, opposite The Brook, from 1-5pm.

The clothes swap group explains on its Facebook event page: “Clothes swaps and stuff swaps are a free and informal environment which saves clothes from landfill and presents an exciting alternative to spending your money on new things from expensive shops and potentially unethical production methods.”

BySea opened its doors at the end of March, selling ethically sourced coffee and with profits going towards the work of the Sailors’ Society, a charity which supports seafarers around the world. You can read more about it in our report here.

Southampton Clothes Swaps describe BySea as: “a relatively new cafe on Portswood Rd. It's a chill vibe, they do all the kinds of coffee as well as a range of yummy sarnies including vegan and gluten free options”.

Clothes swaps are free to attend. The ‘rules of the game’, as set out on Facebook are:

“1. Dig out the clothes and things you've had sitting around that you no longer use or want (or cannot take with you when you move). The more the merrier if you need a clear out.

2.Bring your things to the swap (please make sure they are clean/fit for some kind of use). Lay your things out in the correct section. 

3.Have a rummage through everything else to find yourself some things you like.

4.Sit down and have a drink or some food, chill out and appreciate your (new) stuff!

Get sorting!”
