Mrs Bear’s Swap Shop With the theme of WWII and the era of ‘make do and mend’, Mrs Bear’s pop-up swap shop is a nostalgic, retro inspired swishing event, that encourages consumers to reduce clothing waste and get creative! BODO headed to east London’s Water Poet pub, to take part and see for ourselves.
The way it works is that each person brings up to seven items of clothing and/or accessories and shoes that they no longer want, but are still in good condition. In exchange, they receive a clothing coupon book once their items have been graded.
Sclater Street Stalls
Based in Sclater Street car park, Sclater Street Stalls offers a variety of locally produced goods and designs from local artisans and entrepreneurs.
Open til well into the evening, there was even a live graffiti art street exhibition, supporting each other as local talents. Held every fortnight, Sclater Street Stalls is well worth a visit if you’re looking for quality, hand made and locally sourced items – from jewellery to yummy street food!
