Hello Peeps, I thought it would be good to start a trade thread. I'd like to get some chicks together to see if they have clothes/shoes they want to trade. I've got a pile of stuff, some bike stuff, some non-bike stuff. Some stuff I've made myself!
Here's a poll, and from that we can set up a survey monkey or whenshallwe? to coordinate times/dates of jumbles. If you know someone who would like to be involved please tell them about this as the more we have the better it will be and I don't think we're supposed to x-post. : )
I've made it public for ease of coordinating.
I have Howies, Bespoke, Pearl Izumi, linen, stuff I've made, lots more. 1 sz 12 top. Size 39 cycling shoes, size 5-5.5 other.
You so skinny...
This is a great idea lady. I've heard of these parties where women bring a load of clothes they don't want and have a swapping party. Awesome idea.
I haz heard of as an American thing, genuinely awesome.
I've got a tonne of bike stuff I've never worn, and some regular dresses and things too that I'm too lazy to charity shop.
poll, caroline, poll.
Can I vote twice? I've got stuff thats 8-14.
I'm doing a mini one of these at my house on sunday - I have too much stuff... actually, I don't want to trade, I just want rid!
size 8ish shoes, size 12-14 clothes mostly, but some either side of that too.
Cool, hoefla, organize with the other 12-14s and have at it!
Rowhan, you are a boy; why did you vote on this?? Do you want women's clothing? I mean, no problem if you do, just clarifying.
Why am I reading this thread?
i gave all my clothes away last summer, but have a few tops, cardis and short i don't wear.
This is an awesome idea! Lots of my non-bike mates do this and it's an ace way to have a clear out and get some new garms! Not sure that I've got much to trade mind, but will have a look.
I've got nothing to trade in but am willing to join the fun.
Why am I reading this thread?
I don't know, Prav, but it makes me laugh that you commented!
Do we want to give it another week with some x-posting to other sites or do you want to just organise, Hoefla?
you could maybe add shoe sizes to your poll, though I'm a smelly boy and won't be coming to your party due to doing boy stuff with magnets
ah crap, I dint realise I was organising... I might not have any stuff left after the weekend, y'never know!
well, I don't have an abode in london, so that will be the first thing to sort out I guess - anyone want to host?
we could do it instead of the next Ladies' Drinks - people bring drink/snacks of choice, stuff to swop, and bags. that way, the swopping is optional or incidental or whatever, and it would be more of a social thing.
if no-one wants to host we could find a pub maybe, but they would need to be okay with us showing up with loads of stuff and making a mess, and it would be good if loos were clean enough to try stuff on...
hmm. thinking about it, I wouldn't fancy hosting something that potentially any internet random can access...
somewhere like NT or RFH/southbank has plenty of loose space indoors where we could meet and spread out, and lots of clean loos (some of the RFH ones even have a sort of dressing/make-up room before the washroom bit). that would mean southbank priced beer, though, unless the weather is good enough for outside - the fake grass bit we were on for drinks recently would work.
I suggest a weekend afternoon - I can't do august BH or the weekend after, so 10/11 sept would be the earliest. the date shouldn't be dependent on me though...
Oh, you're not organising totally, just for the 12-14s since you already had loads of stuff you wanted to trade/fob off, anyway. I'll pick up for the 8-10s.
Sorry that wasn't clearer. : )
can't we mix it up? it'll be more fun that way, and people aren't exactly always regular sizes in everything.
another idea for venue is a large pub, I know one in hackney that I'm pretty sure would be amenable. the toilets aren't great though.
10th or 11th september anyone?
Sounds like a good idea. I just thought it made sense for you to do one size since you already had something you were planning. It would be nice to do it in place of a ladies drinks, though. Can't think of organising anything at the moment as I'm still trying to escape work. Aaaugh!
ah, my thing this weekend is just a few friends coming over for tea&cake, with free clothes on the side :)
At most clothes swaps I've been to it's all sizes together -- and yeah, combined with a pub makes top sense.
Don't worry about formatting, just type in the text and we'll take care of making sense of it. We will auto-convert links, and if you put asterisks around words we will make them bold.
