So yesterday, the group I run turned 1 and to celebrate we have registered the company as an official Australian Business, printed off 1000 stickers and given it a facelift with help from local street artist Tobias.
About Shop and Swap
Shop and swap is a sneaker and street wear trade collective, founded by Lyam in May of 2012 with the
goal of creating not only an urban clothing market but a community of
people who share a passion for culture. This means we encourage music
and art as well and welcome people to promote their works.
posting something for sale it is a good idea to keep it to a certain
structure including; Brand, item name and season, size, weather it is
for sale or trade and what you are looking get out of the sale be it the
pair of sneakers you'Âve been looking for or a price.
Feel free to
invite people who you think would be interested in the group as we are
trying to get as big as we can and have people doing business from all
around Australia and even the world! Along the way Lyam has picked up
help from his promoter Tim and second in charge Nathi and we hope to
take this very far!
So consider this a big welcome from Lyam, Nathi and Tim!
Shop and Swap etiquette
We'Âre all here to gain something. Whether you'Âre buying or selling
something, you need someone else in this group to help you out. These
aren'Ât necessarily rules, more like guidelines on how we would like to
run things in here. So, if you don'Ât agree with what another member is
posting simply don't comment.
However, our only rule is that
we deal in authentic street wear. If you know for a fact that another
member has posted an item that breaches this policy you're welcome to
comment; this is not to be thrown around or used lightly. If a user
makes these accusations continuously and is proven wrong they can be
removed from the group.
So check it out!
