The Barley Mow – 39 Castle Road, PO5 3DE Southsea
We at Art Saves Lives International are relaunching and want to introduce ourselves to our community in Portsmouth and Southsea.
So we thought what could we do to say hi to you all and let you know what we are all about…
Then we thought SWAP SHOP!!
a GREAT CHANCE FOR US ALL to get involved and do something which helps our environment as well as a fun way to show you what ASLI can offer Portsmouth.
Swap shop rules…
Swap unwanted for wanted items at our FREE swap shop event. Start your new year by having a sort out and help recycle in your local community. Bring your swap items in a bag of your choice and you will be able to refill your bag with the same amount for FREE!!
BRING – clothes / shoes / accessories / books / CD’s / DVD’s
Bric-à-brac / toiletries…
We will also have a table set up for anyone wanting to get involved with us at ASLI, so artists of all disciplines, volunteers, organisations or companies can find out about exciting opportunities within ASLI
There will also be a cake sale and art sale.
And as the amazing staff at Barley Mow – Southsea have let us do our event for free, you can also buy drinks and food from the private bar in the function room.
We look forward to meeting you and swapping with you.
