SHRUB’s Big Move updates – We still need your help!

Hello SHRUBies! Firstly, big thanks to all our awesome stuff and volunteers for your much needed help! Huge thank you also goes to several enterprises:

  • Bright Green Initiative, which donated free furniture.
  • Edinburgh Settlement Project, which provided free storage of a furniture and stock.
  • Forest Café, which lent tools and equipment for our renovations.

As you can imagine, our new Swap Shop location has changed a lot since we’ve got our keys and we definitely haven’t been standing idly by!

We painted our walls red.We painted our walls red.

We made plans – fortune favors the prepared!

Then we decided that the radiators and columns should be painted white.

And so we did. At least one 🙂

Afterward, we started to build shelves downstairs, to fit them nicely for you into our new clothing space.

We also had loads of work (and fun!) with bookshelves.

Since then we have been busy with moving lots of things around with stock, furniture, and storage. But don’t make any mistakes, we still need your help!

To lend a hand, contact us via e-mail at or just drop by at
