Clothing Swaps

Our clothing swaps have proven to be very successful. After two editions of a children's clothing exchange (up to size 152), we are adding a new category for TEENS. Anyone aged 10-19 may bring in clothing in good condition that they no longer wear to exchange for "new to you" garments. Welcome!

The following Children's - (sizes 50-152) & Teen - (ages 10-19 year) CLOTHING SWAP IS:

🗓 Saturday, 15 juni

⏰ 1pm - 5pm

📍 'De Kring, Heilig-hartplein 2, 9040 Sint-Amandsberg


  • 12-13pm pre-"shopping" for volunteers
  • 13-17pm shopping with points
  • 16-17pm open to everyone, points available for purchase, 1€ per point 

Check and sort each item

Clothes must be clean and in good condition - please check in advance for stains - including sleeve cuffs, that all buttons are pressent, and that snaps and zippers works. Please sort all clothes by size and type beforehand

Other items may also be dropped off:

For Babytheek Gent, we are looking for fancy dress and costumes up to size 152. Items for pregnancy or for baby or toddler are also welcome. As well as additions for our sales and exchange corner. We sell shoes, pants stockings and socks, bibs, hats, scarves and gloves and tetracloths at competitive prices in our "store" to support our organization and projects.

A clothing swap at Gentse Spruiten involves a few steps:

  1. Bring in the clothes at specific times during the week of the swap you want to participate in. We review each garment together to make sure it is in good condition, without stains, that all buttons are present and that the zippers work. You will receive points for items that are accepted. If you want, you may donate additional items.
  2. During the clothing exchange, you are welcome to come "shop" with your points. If you cannot use all your points, you may use them at a later clothing exchange.
  3. Helping hands make work lighter!!! ❤️ Those who volunteer may come and shop an hour early!
