Items donated for swap event

Do you have gifts tucked under the bed or thrown in a cupboard that weren’t quite right for you? Stop feeling guilty and find them a new home!

We’ll be holding an “unwanted gift exchange” this Saturday from 10am-12pm at Frome Town Hall. You can bring, swap and buy items to find new things that fit you and see neglected gifts snapped up by others who will use them.

All kinds of small, quality items in new or good condition are welcome. There will also be plenty to buy for a small donation to SHARE if you’d like to come along empty-handed and find an unexpected treasure.

You can drop items off to Frome Town Hall in advance or bring them on the day. We’ve already had some great items dropped in, such as this unused bag and scarf 🌟

For anything you bring, you’ll be able to swap each item for something else. You can also donate items at the town hall and we’ll sell them for donations to help SHARE grow.

Gather up your unwanted gifts and come along! We’ll have the kettle on and some biscuits out ready for you.

P.S. Frome Town Hall is also a drop off point for Re:Fresh Frome, who take unwanted toiletries to donate to disadvantaged young people in Frome.

Don’t start your Christmas shopping just yet! Get a head start on finding perfect gifts and saving money for the festive season with our first ever…

✨ Swap shop!

Come along to Frome Town Hall on Saturday 23rd November from 10am-12pm to swap gift-worthy items & planet-friendly alternatives to wrapping paper. This is a free event, with tea and cake available for a small donation.

Swap your items for others that would make great gifts for Christmas, birthdays, special occasions or even just for yourself – why not?

😇 Why swap? There are more reasons than you think…

No matter your motivation, swapping has a lot of benefits for you and others:

  • Save money on gifts and wrapping
  • Help the planet by reducing the demand for production of brand new goods & shipping
  • Smile knowing that something you swapped or made will brighten someone’s day
  • Get unique gifts – handmade goods and items with history
  • Be part of the community. Why not bring your kids to show how important it is to share?

🎁 What should you bring?

If you think it could make a good gift, bring it along! You can also drop off things in advance to Frome Town Council if it’s easier than bringing them on the day. Here are some ideas:

  • Preloved gifts (to be loved again)
  • Preserves
  • Indoor and outdoor plants and pots
  • Art & craft materials
  • Books, music and films
  • Handmade items
  • Household / Bric-a-brac
  • unopened and in date food items to include in hampers
  • lovely baskets, unusual containers, nice re-usable bags and jars to ‘wrap’ things in!

And after Christmas, come and find any neglected gifts a new home at our Unwanted Gift Exchange! More details to come…

Frome Town Hall is on Christchurch Street West, Frome, BA11 1EB. There is wheelchair access via the side entrance and a lift available to the first floor where the Swap Shop will take place. Please note parking is not available at the venue.
