How to swap or shop

Bring us your pre-loved clothes and accessories

Bring in up to 10 good quality, clean, items you no longer wear to our shop in Castle Quarter (Level 2).  We accept womenswear, menswear, childrenswear, footwear, and accessories.*

Exchange them for swap points

The amount of points you receive will be dependent on the quality and condition of each item.  The better the item, the higher the points value.  (e.g. a quality high street brand top is worth approximately 4-6 swap points.  If it is new with tags, the swap value may be even higher.)**

Spend your points in store

Browse our many rails of beautiful quality clothes, each one priced with a points value.  We have a high turnover of stock, give change in the form of points and there is no time limit on point vouchers, so pop in regularly to pick up an entirely new wardrobe for free!

Leave as a New-U

Guilt free shopping that is helping to minimise the harmful effects of the textiles industry by re-using clothing as wearable items – time and time again!


*We can't accept dirty clothing as we have no facilities to launder garments. We are unable to take underwear, real fur, loungewear (such as pyjamas), or shoes which have anything other than very light wear.

**Please note that due to Covid-19 we are currently quarantining items for 48 hrs before sorting and calculating points. Your points will be recorded against your name ready for you to collect anytime from the following week

No points? No problem

If you don’t have enough swap points, or have nothing to swap, you can still shop with us in store and online.  Everything in store is available for cash – just halve the swap points value to find the price, ie. 8 swap points = £4 cash. Although we can't accept card payments in store, we accept card for our online sales which help us raise money to support the charity.
