An online clothes swapping website which, rather than selling clothing and accessories, offers the opportunity to swap your unwanted items.
About the project
Ami’s Clothes Swap gives people the opportunity to swap high street, designer or vintage items in return for a set postage and packaging cost.
The benefits of Ami’s Clothes Swap is customers can update their wardrobe with 'new' clothes and accessories that other people won't be buying in the shops. There will also be a few new or seasonal items added by myself to keep the website current and only wearable/useable items without tears or holes will be accepted.
It has become more popular to sell unwanted belongings; Ami’s Clothes Swap will take the hassle out of selling - taking photos, adding descriptions etc. and there will no stress involved in bidding and waiting to see if you have won something. The transaction or swap will be immediate and the price doesn’t waiver.
Every year approximately 350,000 tons of clothing go into landfill, and a quarter of households admit to owning more than they need. Ami’s Clothes Swap will encourage customers to recycle clothing rather than to throw items away, and discourage from expanding on their belongings.
Occasionally there will be events for people to bring their clothes to swap; these will be sociable events with drinks, music food etc.
How will your pledges be spent?
Pledges will go towards starting up my business:
- Setting up and running the website for the first 6 months.
- Promotional items - business cards, leaflets etc.
- A business address.
- Initial stock to start the website.
Thank you for taking the time to read through my Crowdfunding project, if you have any questions please send me an email. I’d be really grateful if you could share my Crowdfunder page on social media to get more people interested, and hopefully more pledges!
