Swishing, Clothes Swap in A Casino !
Have you heard of Swishing, do you know what swishing is, have all your friends been secretly swishing and you don’t know about it. I am not surprised if your best friend hasn’t told you about their secret addiction to swishing as then you would realise that their latest outfit may have cost a lot less than you thought.Why are we posting about swishing I hear you ask, well its just another event of many that takes place in your local Casino. Yes we have said before that you can visit your local Casino and you do not have to spend a penny. Well what is Swishing all about ! according to Wikipedia
Swishing refers to swapping an item or items of clothing or shoes or an accessory with friends or acquaintances. Parties must willingly give an item to participate in the transaction, once they have given an item they are free to choose something of interest from what others have offered.Value does not come into the equation, swappers do not necessarily get an item of equal value and are free to choose anything that the other person if offering (without having to pay). Swishing is now being more widely practised throughout the world, and has evolved to include other items such as books and furniture.Not only do people hold ‘swishing parties’ either as a charity event or simply for the enjoyment of it (while recycling and saving money at the same time) but, there are several websites that have online swishes taking place.
So basically that is it, you take along your unwanted items of clothing and then in return you are able to choose another item of clothing that someone else has brought along, a fuss free way of recycling your unwanted clothing and you can honestly say to your partner that the new outfit hasn’t cost a penny (well maybe a drink or two). If you would rather not leave the house to do your swish then check out these online swishing sites Swishing.com Swishing.co.uk
