Well let me start by thanking Andrea Founder and Organizer of Crafting Female Friendships - Dubai group for organising such an interesting and exciting Ladies Only Social Event - Swap Shop!
Also thank you Andrea for inviting the Ladies of Dubai Social Club and The Arab Network top such an event, I'm really thrilled to be working with you on this one and future events soon.
Join us this Saturday, March 15th for a good old-fashioned frugal Swap Shop! Anyone interested can bring up to 10 items (good quality pre-loved clothes or accessories in new or almost new condition) and swap by negotiation for something else - damsels, this is an AMAZING way to update your wardrobe! If you are a mother, please feel free to bring young kids along (and their clothing, if you like :) - I'm sure new mothers might appreciate hand-me-downs! You can swap as many times as you like, but you can only leave with as many items as you came with. There is no guarantee you'll walk away having swapped your lot but there IS a guarantee you're going to have a great time and meet other like-minded ladies :)
There is NO COST to attend this meetup and it is open to all so feel free to bring along friends, relatives and coworkers - but do update your RSVP to let us know the number of guests who'll be joining you.
**Note - No food will be provided but feel free to BYO or order from outside as there are many cafes and restaurants nearby which deliver. Coffee is provided onsite free of charge. VENUE: 5th Floor, Dubai National Insurance Building, Deira (Opposite to Deira City Centre)
