Would you use a clothes ‘Swap Shop’ on DDGD?

I just had an idea, should we rally for DDGD to organize a swap-shop for all of us fashion lovers, who over-spend a little? :) x

    YES! I had thought about that 6 months ago but never asked on the forum. So glad you did! Wonder if more people would be interested.

  • Tess says:

    If it was set up properly, with good guidelines to follow and some way of ensuring that no one is taken advantage of, it could be a brilliant addition to the site! Perhaps if it was decided that all liability lies with the members agreeing to swap items then there couldn’t be any negative connotations for DDGD.

  • Jessica says:

    I think it’s a great idea! I guess there would be a few terms & conditions that would need to be sorted out as well as the cost of postage but a great way to update your wardrobe without breaking budget!

  • Laura says:

    I agree with the previous posts. If it was set up properly I’d definitely use it!

  • monisme says:

    It would pretty much be an Ebay but using goods to buy other goods in a sense. I could see it working.

    • Zerotolove says:

      Or even could trade DDGD dollars for an item, so that people could afford the SWAG they’re lusting over?

  • DDGD - Kate says:

    Hey guys, We have thought about it, and we feel the same, if we can work out how to make sure it’s safe, fair and easy to use (and also what the heck to do about shipping) then we will do it.

    Just after we’ve got the pop up 100% perfect, updated the galleries, launched out iPhone and iPad app and a few other things 😉


    • Zerotolove says:

      Well, I guess you could say that Shipping must be sent in an express bag (ie, same cost for 2 people to send a parcel to each other, given the items are under 3kgs, I work with Australia Post, so understand the system a bit). On top of that, for those who abuse the system, they could have their SWAG rights, as well as the right to listing swap items, removed. What do you think? x

    • Tess says:

      Just a small check-list there Kate 😉 good-luck with it all! xx

    • DDGD - Kate says:

      Yeah, shouldn’t take too long 😉

    • Zerotolove says:

      Was just an idea, no need to be rude…

    • Tess says:

      I know I wasn’t meaning for my comment to come across as rude & I doubt very much Kate did either. These things take time, that’s all I was saying :)

    • DDGD - Kate says:

      Sorry Zerotolove, wasn’t meaning to be rude at all either, was just being cheeky. We definitely love the idea, and will keep you updated if and when we can do it. x

  • Zerotolove says:

    Seems people are! x

  • misspriluvsu says:

    hayleee yeahh <3

  • claudia.xx says:

    OMG, I would love to do this! yesyesyes!!!

  • Kayla says:

    This would be great! Can we include accessories too, I have too many rings and not enough fingers :)

  • Tinaday says:

    I would love to! I have unworn shoes, vintage clothes, accessories all in good condition. This is very timely Zerotolove, as I was just looking at buying a ticket – $25 – for the clothing swap which is one of the events at next month’s LMFF. Maybe I will hang on to my stuff now and wait for DDG’s swap – yay!

    • Zerotolove says:

      Oh I never knew there was a swap shop! Wow… how dies it work? (Looking forward to LMFF!) x

  • Tinaday says:

    Here’s the link for the LMFF 2012 clothing swap


  • Elly says:

    What a great idea!!

    But it won’t be easy though.

  • Juanitajade says:


  • stephalison says:

    What a brilliant idea!! I hope that this actually happens!

  • janelleb.xo says:

    this is a fabulous idea!! xo

  • WonderLady says:

    Great Idea :)

  • meg_fashionista says:

    It should only be so that you can swap designer clothes so noone misses out xx

    • Zerotolove says:

      I agree! Or, seperate forums for high street, designer and vintage! x

  • lollyish says:

    DEFS! that really sounds like a wicked idea. I have SO many clothes, that I hoard, most I don’t even wear anymore. And don’t even get me started on shoes. I don’t want to sell them because most people online that I sell to ( on ebay etc etc) are cheapskates. I would much rather swap for another item and give my clothes to fashionistas who would actually appreciate the item.

  • radiovixen says:

    this is such an awesome idea and i would so download the iphone app of DDGD!

  • Alishes says:

    Great idea. I’m always buying and selling stuff on ebay but am really getting over it, so would love another outlet to aquire ‘new’ pieces and get rid of my ‘old’ things.

  • amylim_1 says:

    Second that!
    i’m sick of getting disappointing things off ebay :(

  • prittykitty says:

    YES! It would be great to have a swap shop of like-minded fashion people, rather than having to trawl through all the junk on other websites.

  • LadyInLace says:

    That would be great! I have many things that I’ve bought but are sitting with tags attached (they seemed like the perfect thing at the time!). I could make space in my wardrobe and fill it at the same time, which is possibly counterproductive but that’s never stopped me before.

    • GMeers says:

      LadyInLace – I spy a kindred spirit! 😉

      What a great idea this is! I’m up for swapping instead of shopping! (though I love shopping…maybe both?!) :)

  • vavoom says:

    Good for those who really close to a post office so posting isn’t a hassle.

  • angelling says:

    It’s a great idea and a way to save a bit of money too, as I always end up giving my stuff away to the Op shop, a lot still in mint condition.

  • GrizzlyFawn says:

    Sounds like an awesome idea!

  • stefaneigh says:

    That would be an awesome idea, I have too many clothes but can’t be bothered with the hassle of ebay

  • emsanta says:

    Sounds awesome, I have so many clothes especially dresses I have only worn once.

  • troon13 says:

    Would definitely be involved. I have a number of unworn items which would be highly sought after.

  • Fashionista8P says:

    Great idea, I would be interested in checking it out. I usually just give my stuff away to the op shop.

  • Razerpops says:

    I have so much stuff I’d love to, but it should also go beyond clothes to accessories.

  • Zerotolove says:

    Woooooo! They listened! Wonder when It’s going to open?! What will you swap first? x

  • emmiej says:

    Yes yes yes yes yes!

  • heather says:

    Sounds like a great idea, i have alot of clothes i don’t wear and i normally just pass them onto my sisters or friends but its getting hard now that i don’t really know anyone whose the same size as me

  • thecatwhosawstars says:

    This sounds like a good idea. However, postage costs can be very expensive. You could post a piccie of something you are bored of and see what others have.

  • Jayzee says:

    YES!!! Please do this!!! I have clothes that are still in style but once in a while you need a change, this saves so much money and can be so much fun browsing for something to swap with!! PLEASE please do this 😀

  • sarabear557 says:

    i would love that!!!!!

  • Rebecca De Aguiar says:

    If it were to run smoothly and everyone cooperated then I could see it working out well. Great idea!

  • Brooke Elyse Gerrick says:

    I’d be in !

  • Caoimhe Breathnach says:

    I would 100% use one! did I see something about being listened too?? Is this actually going to go ahead??

  • MadelenaB says:

    I would only use it if someone was monitoring the products going up so that no one is posting clothes that are not worth swapping. Obviously not everyones style is the same and it doesnt all have to be brand name designer clothes either but just so that clothes that have obviously see better days are not being posted and clogging up the system because it would make it painful to go through! other that that it is a great idea however I don’t know how easy it would be to organise a fair system through the website on here unless it was a one of thing for a week or so..

  • Lucy Margaret says:

    That would be so amazing!! I’d love to see this happen. Can’t wait for the app!

  • Miss Rikki says:

    I really hope this does happen!

  • beautybabe1 says:

    This sounds like a good idea.

  • It’s in the works guys :) stay tuned x

  • India Weaver says:

    such an awesome idea!!!

  • Erin Carloss says:

    Yes! <3

  • RobbieC says:

    What a fantastic idea!
