This is very last minute but if you heart Cox & Baloney then you’ll love their latest event: Swaparoo. Ship-Shape is a big fan of swishing and swapping parties and is pleased to see the vintage boutique is jumping on the bandwagon with monthly swapping events, starting tonight.
To take part and score some new swag you need to taking in your unwanted outfits in advance so if you haven’t already done so, you’ll have to wait until the next Swaparoo in December. If you’re going along tonight then feel free to comment on what bargains you come away with. If you’re still unsure about swapping your clothes take a look at the rules below.
