Hold on to your hats! Don’t like your hat? Well now you can swap it for a better one. This year Undress has the distinct pleasure of hosting the Valley Swap Shoppe at Valley Fiesta… and we could not be more excited!
Valley Fiesta has time and again proven to be Brisbane’s eminent street party event. A veritable pastiche of music, markets, art displays, food for even the most sophisticated of palates and now, in proud partnership with the Brisbane City Council, Undress will host the biggest pop-up fashion exchange the Valley has ever seen. We are hard at work creating a free event where you can swap your Rose Tattoo jacket for pre-loved outfits, generous bargains and even some vintage gems.
The Valley Swap Shoppe will be right in the heart of the Valley Fiesta on Saturday.
Who: You and your good taste

If someone brings 5 items but doesn’t find 5 items to take home, what happens?
Because this is a free event, we can’t guarantee anything. It’s about having fun and swapping clothes you no longer wear! If you don’t like what you see, grab a few garments for a friend.
Can you take the things you brought back home?
If the items that you brought with you have not been taken, you are welcome to take them home. When you ‘check-in” you will be issued with tokens. If you wish, you can use your tokens to reclaim your own items.
What will happen to the things that are not taken by 3pm?
They will be donated to Vinnie’s and Lifeline.
What if it rains?

Should I bring a bag?
Yes! It will be easier for you to take your items home if you have a bag. Consider an enviro bag.
How will I depart the event?
You will ‘check out’ of the event. You will hand in your tokens and show the clothes you have chosen. For example, if you have 5 tokens you can take 5 items of clothing.
So embrace the fun, dress sustainably, bring that winning smile and swap your finest. We’ll see you there!
