Than get your crafty gear around this.
Soooooo, we are just starting out organising The Big Shwop for Wellington again. HOORAY! Excitement plus. It seemed just the right time to repost this tasty video of The Big Shwop in Auckland last November. A little fuel for your fire, if you will dear shwoppers. We’ll be re-stoking it properly in no time, don’t you fear.
Check out this slick video of The Big Shwop. It was filmed at the last event we held on the 14th November at The Langham. Soooo cool to see the event like this, all sped up, sharp and snazzy. Man it was a cool day! Three cheers to Shwopping!
Thanks Auckland for a stellar weekend – plenty of sustainable shwoppers, a great volunteer crew, a spectacular atmosphere at a great venue and an amazing selection of quality clothes re-cycled and sent home with new owners. CAN’T WAIT for the promo video to be put together that Reuben was busy beavering away on all day. Will definitely be posting here as soon as we can! Mwah to you all! (that is the sound of an air kiss to your lovely shwoppy cheeks). Thanks a bundle for helping to make it a reality!
With The Big Shwop on this Sunday its time to give your wardrobe a good shakedown and dig out up to twenty items to bring along. Focus on your spring and summer wardrobe. Think about items that you didn’t wear when it was warm last year. Chances are, if you didn’t wear them then, you’re not going to wear them now.
I think we all have them – fantastic clothes hanging in our wardrobe that we just don’t wear. You know the skirt or dress or pair of jeans I am talking about – perhaps an impulse buy, perhaps a size too small, perhaps they have sentimental value. You pull them out every now and again, try them on and then decide “No, not today” and back they go. Endlessly. They craftily avoid a trip out to charity because you think the perfect occasion will arrive to which they will be worn.
The Big Shwop is on this SUNDAY!! Gah! Such excitement.
This is Inga, one of the co-directors, with her excited face on. As you can see, we kind of get a little excited. But this Big Shwop is even more exciting than ever! I know, I know. It is entirely possible that we will pop.

Today, I thought we’d thumbs up the wonderful ladies at Trilogy skincare. Trilogy started in Wellington eight years ago and they are choice. Their products are based around the trilogy of simplicity, purity and vitality and all their quality skin and hair care products are ethically and environmentally responsible. More than that, they also support causes that reflect that ethic of care as well
All lady shwoppers receive a jar of Trilogy’s wonderful Everything Balm(RRP$22). This stuff is dynamite – 100% natural, multi-purpose, thirst quenching balm. I love it and you will too.
BUT WAIT! There’s more! What’s that – I sound like a TV ad? Well, heck I am excited, what can I say.
Total result! The Big Shwop – a total shwopping experience.

With six great events under our belt – we’re keen to keep making The Big Shwop bigger and better every time. We thought it would be nice to have someone special to officially open The Big Shwop Auckland 2010 for us - so we’re very proud to announce that top NZ designer Annah Stretton will be that special person!
