The next leg of the Swapseez journey starts in less than a fortnight following an excellent first term at Cranham Community Centre, complemented by some online sales. A big thanks to Sharon at CCC (we’re totally into acronyms now that we’re proper business people) for her backing in particular. The ‘excellent’ doesn’t necessarily mean that it’s … More Halfway through the holidays
As Spring bursts onto the scene (north-easterly winds aside), we’re eggsploding back on Monday for the final sales event this term and have a very special offer. We’re giving away some eggstraordinary Easter basket bundles with chocolate, stickers, crafts and all sorts of fun – eggsclusively free as a gift with sales of £15 or more … More Baskets of joy
(Reading + wRiting + aRithmetic) x (Reduce + Reuse + Recycling) = Swapseez UK One thing we all want for our kids is that they grow up happy and healthy. But part of that also means fueling their appetite for information, which at times can seem insatiable. But it’s also infectious. We love watching the minds of … More 3Rs squared
This coming Monday (14 March), we’re taking a week off from our sales event at Cranham Community Centre. But don’t worry, it’s only a one-week break and we’ll be back before Easter on 21 March, so you can come by and check out some of our seasonal offers, including a selection of toys which will … More Update – taking a mid-term break

Christmas is long-gone, and as sunlight floods your home, you may find things you’d put away for a rainy day and never got round to using before the kids outgrew them. Drawers are already overflowing and you’re scared to put much more stuff in the attic in case the ceiling starts wilting… We’ve all been … More Is it time for a spring clean?
Unfortunately it’s not a cute picture of a baby stockbroker in pinstripes with phone attached to their ear(!), but rather a reflection of our efforts to continue to bring bargains to our community. We’ve put a few listings on Gumtree over the past week or so, highlighting in particular the bigger, bulkier items we’re unable to … More Belt and braces
We have said it all along, but your support has meant a lot to us. We’ve seen it in person, but we had a look a the ol’ stats on the website last night and were blown away. Over 1700 page views from nearly 350 visitors, with spikes throughout the past month following blog posts and social media … More Stats the way to do it!
Rumours of some absolute steals must have made their way through official channels up to the local police, who were at the Community Centre in Cranham today. Thankfully, though, they didn’t need to interview us and instead entertained the youngsters at Marlborough Preschool. Elsewhere, our World Book Day sale went well, with books galore flying … More Books, inflatables and a visit from the police

In music, it’s a commonly-held belief that the second album is always a much trickier process to compile than the debut, which is often raw and full of emotion. Thankfully, for us at least, that analogy hasn’t translated to … More The second coming
