The Honesty Jar

The Honesty Jar SwapShop is an independent community reuse station run by volunteers where you can take things and exchange them for other items or a voluntary contribution. We use any profits to run family friendly community live music, craft events and training sessions for home carers and youth groups on topics such as autistic spectrum disorder, dementia awareness, mental health and conflict management.


Items are also gifted to those in need through organisations such as supporting homelessness, rehabilitation, isolation and hardship. The Honesty Jar project started in 2019 by local non-profit group BearCat Collective, who have been running these SwapShops on a pop-up basis as part of many other community activities at various village halls, fetes and shows around North Dorset & South Somerset for over ten years.


​We are based at Grassroots Garden Centre on the main road in Henstridge on the Dorset / Somerset border. Opening hours are 10am till 4pm every day of the week except Wednesdays.


We can accept card payments, and also have online donation options for you to support the project.
