HOW IT WORKS
STEP ONE: Check in with GFX team at the specified time and location. We encourage you to bring as many items as you like, garments and accessories are quality screened to ensure a quality experience. Each item that that passes a screening, you will receive a token/ticket in exchange. If your items are not suitable for swapping you can either take them back or leave with us to recycle. The tickets/tokens are your currency for the swap. As the swap is 1-to-1, you will use these to check out after you have made your selections.
STEP 2: After check-in, the team takes your garments and sets up the swap area. When the swap area is ready there will be a brief introduction to the swap and the ‘rules of engagement’ to remind people of our policies.
STEP 3: Start your engines! Swappers enter the ‘shop’ at the specified times and may begin perusing. While swapping, we limit the number of items you can hold at one to avoid any unnecessary hoarding! If you have three items, try them on, and if you want to keep an item – take it off the hanger and carry it that way to signal that you'll be keeping the item.
Once you have completed your selection, you can hang out in the swap area as they tend to be really fun or check out by taking your new items back to the entrance and show your tickets/tokens to the staff to claim your new clothes!
