into March already and another Acomb Clothes Swap. To spice things up this month, we were asked to cover the hot drinks as well as putting out clothes so both me and Penny spent some time in the kitchen preparing coffees, teas and squash.

It was Max's first time at the clothes swap but he was in his element. With a relatively small turnout of customers, putting out clothes assumed a competitive edge as we all tried to get the clothes as soon as they were on the hangers. It meant we also had plenty of time to catch up and drink tea and biscuits 😁

After an hour and a half with the customers dropping off we went our separate ways. Penny and Leanne even got to take home a few finds to refresh their spring wardrobes.
