For one Sunday The Moseley Swap Shop branched out, managing to infiltrate the infamous capital of consumerism that is Birmingham Bullring! Set up at the back of C.i.B.* we had a small space, just a couple of tables crammed full of things leftover from the monthly Moseley Swap Shop at the Prince of Wales. At first I was nervous that we would be lost in the vastness of the Bullring but as more and more people turned up bringing donations and taking stuff away I was caught up in just how unique what we are doing is to Birmingham! People who stumbled across us seemed amazed at the concept of freetail but once it was explained they were more than happy to get involved.

The event was organised at short notice so although I advertised it as much as I could I am sorry if you missed out on it but please do come along to the next Moseley Swap Shop on the fourth Saturday of the month, 12 until 5pm at The Prince of Wales, Moseley!

*Our thanks to Created in Birmingham for having us, if you haven’t been they are an amazing shop (in the Bullring) selling work by local artists. They were opposite the Mac shop but are closing for the summer then rumoured to be moving to a bigger store within the Bullring!
