We could all use a new hobby or interest nowadays—something that can pick our spirits up when times are difficult. If you’ve never been to a thrift shop before, or if you’ve never done any serious thrifting, you’re missing out on a ton of fun. What is it about thrift shops that make them so alluring to so many people? In my exclusive write-up, I’ll tell you exactly why I enjoyed thrifting so much with Swap Fashions.
The Thrill of the Hunt
We’ve all heard the saying that the journey is always better than the destination or that the anticipation of something is often better than the thing itself. Swap Fashions is full to bursting with that sense of anticipation. As you run down different brands and designs on their website, you never know what you’ll be able to find. Their collections are always rotating and inclusive of the best brands and designs in the market.
The Satisfaction of a Good Deal
Is there any feeling quite like knowing you just got something fantastic for the lowest price possible? That’s what thrift shopping is all about. Getting a great deal (whether you need the item or not) is one of the best parts of thrifting. You won’t find better deals on great finds than inside Swap Fashions. If you’re looking to get the most for your money, you owe it to yourself to go straight to Swap Fashions.
The Effective De-Clutter and Upcycling
Having small houses is a problem in cities like Mumbai but having less space for storage is indeed a global issue. This is mainly because we all tend to fill our houses with clothes without understanding the real purpose and need. Swap Fashions enables us to think and swap our unused/barely used clothes in excellent collection with clothes that match our current requirements. Recycling, reusing, and sustainability are the need of the hour, and we should all take a pause and think before we shop for anything new and add to our closet.
Swapping is Rewarding
Swap Fashions has made swapping extremely convenient and fulfilling. Platforms like Swap Fashions help our community in both passive and active ways. Swapping is a fantastic way to ensure our unwanted clothes reach people who actually desire it while getting something for ourselves in the process. Mind you Swap Fashions does not charge for any swapping transaction. To swap your unused/barely used clothes you just order a Swap Kit for Rs. 299 from their website (www.swapfashions.com) or even better, just courier them your clothes. The lockdown has definitely made us master the art of couriering.
Basis their swapping checklist & algorithms you would be rewarded points in exchange for your clothes, which you redeem for your dream outfits on their website!
The Good for the Environment and Community
Thrifting is a very useful way to reuse and recycle unwanted clothing that would otherwise end up in a landfill. Clothing is surprisingly durable, and most don’t break down quickly or easily in the earth, meaning that it can harm the soil and contribute to environmental degradation. The Fashion industry is the 2nd largest pollutant in the world. By swapping/ donating your branded western wear clothes to Swap Fashions instead of throwing them out, you prevent excessive waste from ruining your community’s environment. We all need to do our part for the environment—for both our local and global communities—if we’d like to combat the effects of climate change.
Vision at Swap Fashions – Keeps People Connected
Thrifting isn’t just a way to get nice and affordable clothing. Thrifting is a way of life! It has a community of its own that is willing and waiting to welcome new members all the time. They like to foster their own community always trying to extend their customer base.
The whole thing about clothes is insane. You can spend a dollar on a jacket in a thrift store. And you can spend a thousand dollars on a jacket in a fast fashion store. And if you saw those two jackets walking down the street, you probably wouldn’t know which was which.
