Spring Swapping with Whitehorse City Council

On Sunday just passed, as a keen team of three we jumped in the new Clothing Exchange van and headed for Nunawading Civic Centre. We were happy to reunite with Kate Patkin and Kirsten Friend- the wonderful women who ensure that the Whitehorse City Council precinct has a great festive time. The Spring Festival was the order of the sunny day with the centre filled to the brim with stalls and entertainment. Shame we were scheduled for the same time as Vasily as we would have like to learn more about his garden! It was a smooth-running swap for a nice diverse crowd, with grannies bringing their vintage nightgowns to swap for the young ladies casual wear. The denim seemed the highlight as many happy swappers left with new jeans amongst their pile. We left the lovely Council ladies with a swap-capacity-building program kit- so they can launch their own swaps in the future but we sure hope they call us again!
