When we say wearable, we really do mean in a good condition, as you'd like to receive it yourself! Nothing washed out, stained or damaged please!

 

Have rummage, try stuff on, suggest a new outfit for a friend, find a new book to read! When you've decided what items you'd like to re-love, the swap them for your unloved items.

This means you get rid of your unwanted stuff in a sustainable manner, and still get to go home with a whole new bag of goodies, maybe a whole new wardrobe....

Get in touch to Rent a Bench...

We'll get back to you soon!

Rent a Bench

Like hot desking but for creatives!

Do you need somewhere to spread out for a couple of hours to lay out your new curtains? Or to finally re-upholster that chair?  Peace and quiet to create your next batch of jewellery? Somewhere to leave your artwork out overnight to dry? or to even bring the van down to complete that conversion to mini-home? 

 

Then we have the space and the tools for you to do that.

 Benches are set up to your requirements and are available on an hourly, daily and weekly rate with budgets to suit all pockets.  We can also accommodate Social Bubbles of up to 6 giving you the opportunity to get together with your friends and family in a dedicated setting for your own creative projects.

 

Please contact us for further details.
