Clothing Swap

Clothing Swap

Valhalla is kicking off Fashion Revolution Week with a clothing swap in an effort to bring awareness to clothing waste. This year's Fashion Revolution Week is in conjunction with The Disco Dolls StudioFrolic Exchange Tampa, and Spool Studio LLC. Each retailer is doing a different event to support Fashion Revolution's effort to radically changing the way our clothes are sourced, produced and consumed, so that our clothing is made in a safe, clean and fair way. - Stay tuned for details of other events.

The average American throws away 82 pounds of clothing waste a year; we often wear our clothes just a couple times and never wear them again. At Valhalla, our mission is to change that by providing an alternative where less waste doesn't have to mean less fashion.

#whomademyclothes 

Drop off clothes any day before the swap - we will not accept clothing during the swap. - Clean women's clothing (sized XS - XL), shoes, and accessories in gently used condition. 

NOTE: the sooner you come in to drop off your items for the swap, the more likely we will be to purchase them for store credit - We are especially looking for dresses and accessories. As the event gets closer, we will have less and less need to purchase inventory. 


What to Bring: 


Bring a bag for shopping the swap. Valhalla Bags are available for purchase for $6. 


How it Works: 

• Come in any day before the swap to drop of your items.

• We ask, to keep things fair, that swappers limit the items they take to the number put in. For example, if you have 10 items to swap, you can take 10 items. We will not be policing, we just want everyone to have a fun experience.

• Left over items will be donated. Items that have the potential to be made into jewelry will be donated to Recover T. Recover T makes jewelry from damaged clothing and $1 from every sale goes to Turning Point of Tampa Foundation to help those struggling with addiction. All clothing in good shape will be donated to The Spring.

Fashion Revolution Week

Fashion Rev.jpg

On 24 April 2013, the Rana Plaza building in Bangladesh collapsed. 1,138 people died and another 2,500 were injured, making it the fourth largest industrial disaster in history.

Since then, people from all over the world have come together to use the power of fashion to change the world. 

Today, both people and the environment suffer as a result of the way fashion is made, sourced and consumed.

This needs to change.

Valhalla is dedicated to starting a fashion revolution and we're starting right here in Tampa. We're working to change the way women wear clothing. And you can help us with this mission.

We believe in this endeavor. Women also don't need to sacrifice fashion. We believe you can have it all; unlimited fashion options AND doing good for the environment at the same time.

What you can do.

  • Get started with a guilt-free clothing membership today.
  • Ask your favorite brands "who made my clothes?"
  • Wear what you already own by learning to rework your closet.
  • Commit yourself to only buying second-hand.
  • Repair clothes that are damaged.
  • Donate/sell unwanted clothes.

Why membership?

Before membership was an option, the only way to get an updated wardrobe was to purchase.

Well, not any more! Now, with a membership, you can rent unlimited amounts of clothing and just return them when you're done. Say goodbye to overflowing closets and say hello to a limitless closet!
