The Clothing Swap Shop is now officially open in Granton Parish Church hall. There are three rails of clothing – one for women’s clothing, one for men’s and one for children’s with baby clothes on a table. The swap shop will be open all the time but will be staffed at the following times:

Wednesday  3 – 4:30pm

Thursday 4.30 – 6pm

Friday 12 noon – 1pm

Bring along good quality clothes you no longer want and take away something new! There is also be a donation box for good quality clothes in the Church on Sunday mornings.

The Swap Shop offers a great way of allowing you to reuse clothes rather than them being wasted. Items that don’t fit you might fit someone else and those that you have got bored of might be someone else’s exciting new outfit!

We ask that you record the weight of clothes that you donate or pick up so that we can calculate how much carbon we are saving by sharing clothes rather than throwing them away! If a volunteer is staffing the shop they will do this for you!

If you see an item you’d like but have nothing to donate, don’t worry, just take the item. You can bring something in at a later date. We don’t want people donating items that they would otherwise happily continue wearing just because they feel they should donate something. And we don’t want people to go without a necessary item just because they have nothing to swap.

Thanks to volunteers from the Scottish Government Climate Change department for helping to sort through the initial donations to the extended swap shop.

You can find out more about volunteering at the Swap Shop on the Volunteering Page of the website.
