The Brockley Boutique

Serena Gomez is starting a new project called The Brockley Boutique. She explains:

We're hoping it will offer local residents a way to buy, sell and swap clothes, as well as giving a platform to local designers and/or knitters who can't afford a pop-up shop.

As well as being a fun way for the community to interact, it is also partly driven by a desire to reduce our over-consumption of new clothes (and everything that this entails).

The idea is that people in the Brockley area can refresh and recycle their wardrobes by posting ads in the boutique, with all the clothes being affordable and within walking distance. The site is live at but we are waiting until we have 10 new listings before these become have a rummage through your wardrobes and get posting!
