Town House Coffee is the venue in Friargate for the SwapShop event.

Alice Bohannon is hosting the swap shop as Crybaby Clothing which gives families, students and arty Prestonians the chance to swap their clothing for vintage clothing.

Sourced from vintage fairs, artists and charity shops the swap shop takes your existing (good condition) clothing and allows you to trade it in.

Alice said it is the first time she has run the event in Preston, having traded from her vintage shop in Eccleston before.

She said: “It’s proven to be very popular in my Eccleston shop so I thought I would try it out somewhere bigger.”

Some of Alice’s t-shirts are on display at the Harris Museum and Art Gallery as part of their new clothing exhibition.
