Compromise. You're both a bit odd.

why would you find yourself in front of him with soap in your hands in the vicinity of a clothes swap party?

clothes exchange - anyone interested?

Hello all
I have been thinking this for sometimes and I am quite interested in doing clothes exchange in Zurich.
I have a lot of clothes and all in good condition, besides selling on ebay or donating to the charity, back home I would go to clothes exchange events. It is quite fun and you can find some nice stuff sometimes. I am not sure if there is one in Zurich, if anyone knows, please let me know; if not, I honestly wouldn’t mind hosting one.
I would like to get some feedback from everyone to see if this is doable in Zurich? Like where would the suitable venue be? How many people would be interested in clothes exchange? etc

Re: clothes exchange - anyone interested?

We discussed this a few months ago:
http://www.englishforum.ch/general-o...wap-party.html

I think the general consensus back then was that it would really work only for small groups who all wear the same size and have similar tastes...

Thanks for the link

I have been to many clothes exchange events, I don’t think the size and style matter.
Of course there will be some basic rules, but what I am interested in finding out is where I could host the event like this? Can we do in the park? (would that be considered as illegal gathering? Lol)
And how many people are willing to come? More the merrier, so you will have more selections. And it is not limited to clothes, it could be bags, accessories etc.

I am living in Zürich and would be interested. My husband always wonders how I can tell him that I have 'nothing' to wear while I have a wardrobe full of clothes ;-)

Exactly. It just takes one scrooge to spoil the whole thing.
I really like the auction and proceeds go to charity idea though
But you don't need to say yes to someone who wants something beautiful that you have and has nothing to exchange for it. You can say no, or you can charge for it so you don't feel ripped off. And btw, my 16 year old daughter is several sizes smaller than I am. But in some of the flowing styles, she looks great in my clothes (just quite different). I'v seen women with very different figures put on the same item of clothing and both fit, but each look very different in the outfit. It can be an amazing experience and a lot of fun.

Nil, are you coming to Stylemixers tomorrow?

Re: Clothes Swap Party

Hi,
I am interested in doing this in Zurich and I prefer to pay as I didn't bring much with me so I would consider buying not exchanging. I will bring more from Warsaw after Christmas as I want to have it all in one place so there will be loads...

I like good second hand stores but can't find anything like this in Zurich - if they have it they are probably too expensive anyway and that's not the point! I wear 38-40 and 39-40 for shoes.
