About Derby Swap Shop
Multi-Coloured Swap Shop, or just simply Swap Shop as it was more commonly known was a British Children’s entertaining programme; one of the original Saturday morning shows during the late 70’s and early 80’s.
The concept was pretty simple; one person needed something and would offer up an exchange, hence the name Swap Shop.
Over 40 years later, modernised for the 21 st Century, the Derby Swap Shop has been created. Inspired by an Idea from Tracy Harrison, CEO of Derby’s Safe and Sound Group, the Derby community quickly pulled together to create the online Swap Shop led by Rachel Hayward of the award-winning, bid writing consultancy service that is Ask the Chameleon.
Rachel quickly reached out to others in the Derby business community and pulled together the team behind Derby Swap Shop. This includes the founder, owner and CEO of the internationally recognised, Derby-based sports apparel brand Huub and newcomers to the Derby market think3, a creative and design agency led by four talented entrepreneurs-in- the-making who have been busy designing and building digital marketing, brand and websites since early 2019.
