Swish and Style in Haringey 

12:30, Sunday 26th March
15:00, Sunday 26th March
London | Haringey | Crouch End
Come along with your clothes to swap!
Jacksons Lane, 269a Archway Road N6 5AA (map)
Give & Take | Workshop


Tired of your t-shirts? Wish you had some different dresses? Save money by bringing along your unwanted (but wearable) clothes to our Swish and Style and go home with a new-to-you outfit, all for free!

It’s simple. Have a clear out and bring good quality clothes along to Jacksons Lane. For each item you bring, you get a token that you can exchange for another garment (maximum 10 items). Everything is free, everything is clean and everything will be re-worn and re-loved.

How it works

For the first hour, everyone is invited to drop off their clothes, shoes and accessories that they want to donate. Whilst we busily sort them into style and hang them on hangers, you’ll be free to check out the workshops – learning how to mend your clothes or upcycle them into something completely different – an old t-shirt becomes a bag or yarn for knitting, fabric scraps blossom into flowers and lonely socks morph into monsters.

During the final hour, you get to look through all the clothes and choose what you want. If you love it, take it. It’s first come, first served – but please only take items you’re sure you will wear.

What can you bring?

Please bring along:

  • Clean and wearable clothes, shoes and accessories
  • No damage, holes and stains
  • You can bring women’s, men’s, children’s and baby clothes
  • No underwear please, unless in sealed, unworn condition

Anything that we deem unacceptable will be given back to you and you will not be given a token. We have the right to turn away any item.

What happens to the items left over at the end?

We will be running seven of these events across North London. Any items left over from one Swish and Style will be taken to the next. At the end of the last event, we will donate these items to the Salvation Army to sell in their charity shops. Any unwearable items that have somehow snuck in will be recycled and turned into things like car seat stuffing.

This event is organised by Keep Britain Tidy on behalf of North London Waste Authoritie and their Wise up to Waste campaign. It is free, accessible and open to everyone who lives in Haringey.
