Entry for the event is just £3.
The Garden of Edith Swap Shop, named after Edith Rigby, is ran by friends Gareth Hodgson and Hannah Greatorex.
Gareth Hodgson said: “Myself and my friend Hannah run the shop together as well as university and part time jobs.
“The shop is primarily a swap shop where people can bring pieces of clothing they no longer want or enjoy and swap them for a new outfit.
“It’s a super simple 3 tiered system; t-shirts and everyday basics are the lowest rating, button up shirts, jeans and so on are mid-range then jackets, dresses and high quality one off pieces are top tier.
“All clothing can be bought without swapping as well and nothing is ever more than £12 .
“We also have a specials rail, selling items that we have hand picked for what we think our customers would like.
“Along side the clothing we also have resident artists selling their work – we do this because we love art and think independent artists need a better platform to get therir names out there.
“Any clothing we can’t sell or is out of season is taken to local charity shops so nothing is ever wasted!”
There will be four artists selling their work at the Townhouse Coffee event.
