Basically, you take along anything you no longer want and donate it and anyone attending can take away anything that has been donated for free, so I guess it's a kind of swap/free jumble sale.
I had a few bags to take that I'd gathered together over the last six months or so, mainly as a consequence of changing over to a vintage style wardrobe. Most of the things I no longer want, I donate to a charity shop locally, but anything with a bit more wear or that I think they won't sell, but still has lots of life left in it, I donate to the Give and Take.
Here's a picture of the bags I took:
Three of the bags were filled with clothing and one bag was filled with bric a brac.
Today's event took place on an award winning housing development on the edge of a lake and next to a wildlife reserve, so it was quite scenic. OH came with me as he had a cold and hadn't gone cycling for once.
We dropped off the donations and then went for a walk around the area with the dog, before heading to a local café for lunch, all of which made it a nice trip out. I popped back into the event later, to have a look around and took just 2 or 3 items away, one of which I'd donated and changed my mind about!
Next stop, we dropped off another two bags of items at our local charity shop. I couldn't resist a quick look, but luckily there was nothing there that I wanted to buy.
The drop offs have cleared quite a bit of space in the spare bedroom, which was well overdue. We just have to put the Christmas decorations back in the loft now to free up more space. It took us over six months to get around to it last year. Hopefully, it won't take us so long this time around.
