Join us at ‘Swap it Like it’s Hot’ – Central City Library’s clothes swap!

Bring along your gently-used clothing to swap for new-to-you items. Any remaining clothes will be donated to the Auckland City Mission.

This event also marks the launch of our new pūrere tuitui/sewing machine, and we’ll be hosting demos throughout the day to help you nip and tuck your new clothes if needed.

Swap it Like it’s Hot is a free and sustainable event. Help the environment, help your wallet, and meet people from the central city community.

All sizes, body shapes & genders welcome.
The details:
11am – 1pm: Drop off your clothes in exchange for swapping tokens, then head to our Makerspace for a demo of our new sewing machine.

1pm – 3pm: Let the swapping commence! You can also book yourself a 15 minute slot on the sewing machine to alter your new items.
What we’d love: Clean, gently used clothing and footwear
What we’re not so into: Stained or irreparable clothing, underwear, swimwear, and accessories
