The Mindthnr Swap ‘n’ Pop Up Shop!
What’s a Swap ‘n’ Pop Up Shop? I hear you say… Well let us tell you all about it!
Mindthnr invited a number of independent small businesses, from fashion, lifestyle, sustainability to art and crafts to raise funds for our charity to continue to provide our vital mental health and emotional support services.
It was held at Dray Walk Gallery, part of the Truman Brewery Estate, situated just off London’s famous and iconic Brick Lane! There was also a clothes Swap Shop where you could browse through a fantastic selection of second hand gems and part exchange (by swapping) a piece you no longer wanted from your existing wardrobe! All in the name of celebrating affordable sustainable fashion, and supporting your local Mind charity.
We had guest appearances from Penny from the Clean & Tidy Home Show (our partners on this event), Sophia Lorimer from Fine Tuned Wardrobe (Sustainable Fashion Stylist) and Dani Dawkins aka @isitdanidawks who is a Master Upcycler and Eco Influencer!
Barnet Fair, a hair salon that recently opened nearby in Containerville, offered a number of express services such as express blow dries, hair styling and consultations and the incredibly talented Amina, a local Henna Artist, hand drew stunning designs free hand and free style all throughout the day.
We thank everyone who visited us and came to support us on this very special day. And a very big thank you to all the brands who supported us on the day and those that couldn’t make it but donated to us to support! We had many requests to put on another Pop Up event so who knows maybe this is the start of something new!
