Ethical Swap Market at Morena

Event: Ethical Swap Market at Morena
Date: 24/04/2022 - 24/04/2022
Time: 9:00 am     Daily

Welcome to the new ethical swap market at Morena, hosted together with Of the Walls Interior Design.

What is this event about?

We all have clothes that are in great condition, but we just don’t seem to wear them anymore. Maybe because we don’t feel the vibe, maybe it doesn’t fit, or maybe you bought it and never wore it. We also have household items or little treasures like frames, cushions, vases, art prints, plants and heaps more that don’t go with the new house you just moved in, or we changed our whole home décor, and they are also in great condition…

Morena decided to combine the successful Clothes Swap with a NEW Ethical Swap Market… a clothes and home treasures swap.

How does the ethical swap market work?

1. Pay $10 to participate.
2. Morena gives you 10 tokens on the day.
3. Bring up to 10 pre-loved clothes or home décor items
4. Use those tokens to ‘pay’ for your ‘new’ item.

What to bring*:⁠

  • Clothes/accessories: high quality with the potential to live a new happy life in the hands of their new owner. Your items should be clean, washed and ready for swapping.
  • Home décor items: art prints, frames, cushions, kitchenware, plants, vases, candles, etc.

What NOT to bring:

  • Please, don’t bring underwear, clothes with holes, stains or that look very old. The idea is to swap it for something in really good condition. This is not a donation event and we are not a shop like Salvation Army or Vinnies.
  • Remember that this is a swap event, meaning you should bring things in really good condition, as you also want to take home with you an item in the same condition.
  • Don’t bring broken household items.
  • No electronics.
  • No big furniture.

⁠All un-swapped clothes will be sent to @upparelofficial to give those clothes a second chance and save them from going to landfill.

There will also be live music, food, coffee, cocktails and beers to keep the good vibes flowing!

The price of your ticket includes

10 tokens⁠.
Upparel raffle ticket⁠.
Morena (coffee) raffle ticket.
Of The Walls (interior design) raffle ticket.

This helps  cover the postage fees to send all unwanted clothes and shoes to be repurposed at Upapparel.⁠

And if you buy the ticket in advance through @humanitix you will be supporting “A better start for disadvantaged Indigenous students” program.⁠

*Once you arrive, you will have to do a “check in” with the organisers so they can receive and check the items you bring. If they don’t match with the descriptions we’ve mentioned, they won’t accept them. If you have questions of what to bring, please feel free to email [email protected] or message them on Instagram/Facebook @morena.espresso.

**Swap market entrance will be thought the car park at the back of Morena. The event will be held there. If it rains, the event will be moved inside of the café.
