What is Global Sharing Week? It's about helping millions discover and participate in the real Sharing Economy, a movement that promotes the sharing of resources, the importance of community, cooperative enterprises, commons-based projects and building a healthy, sustainable society based around sharing.
Bring all your unworn or unwanted clothes and swap them for new-to-you garms to refresh your wardrobe the eco-friendly way. This is no second-hand clothes scrum! It’s a boutique shopping experience with a difference. Men’s, women’s and children’s clothes are welcome – it’s a family friendly event. Here’s how it works; Bring along up to 10 garments (men’s, women’s or children’s clothes). You can check in anytime between 12-3pm. Swapping begins at 12:30. Pay on entry and collect your swap card, if you don’t already have one. For each item of clothing you bring, you’ll get a stamp on your swap card. We grade clothes into two categories on arrival; Designer and High Street. You swap like for like, so a Designer item gets you another Designer item, or you can ‘swap down’ for a High Street Item. Browse the rails and find some clothes you love – try them on if you like! Check out at the reception desk to get your swap card updated If you have spare stamps at the end, you can bring them along to the next swap. Entrance is £5 per person standard rate. Members of Stitched Up swaps get entry for £3 (membership fee £5 per year). Season Ticket holders (£30 for the year) get free entry to all swaps for a year.
Wanted! Can you help? We need good quality children’s books for ages 3 – 11 for Derby Book Festival’s Book Swap on Saturday 4 June.
Join us for our annual Brighton Street Share. There'll be food, BBQ, Share Table, clothes to swap, music and fun!
A sharing secret diner for you and your family in Francfurt! Be there!
Unload clothing that no longer inspires you, pick up a few items that make you look slick, leftovers donated to charity, keep stuff out of landfills and connect with your community while doing it all.
As part of my schedule of events for Global Sharing Week in June, Jane’s Place is hosting a bespoke, business-led, ‘Meet the Expert’ day.
On Monday 5 June, I am inviting a maximum of 7 local entrepreneurs, freelancers or small business owners to a free, full day workshop with an expert of their choosing.
We will have an opportunity to present questions and discuss challenges in the morning. In the afternoon, we will take action on our challenges collectively, with the support of others and the expert.
- Welcome coffee and tea and 9 am with a prompt start at 9.30 am
- A simple vegetarian lunch of soup or salad will be provided (weather dependant) and a sweet treat too
- Finish at 2.30, with time for a chat and informal networking before a 3pm finish
Please contact me with any questions or comments and please do share with your networks.
