Woman's Exchange, Inc.

The Woman's Exchange is a self-sustaining, debt-free organization of vital importance to the community. Through the consignment operation, which consists of more than 200 volunteers and 5,000 consignors, the Woman's Exchange has awarded a total of more than $7 million in grants and scholarships to support the Arts of Sarasota and Manatee counties., During the 2011-2012 fiscal year, the Woman's Exchange sold a total of 118,000 plus used items. Not only does the Woman's Exchange do its part in keeping local landfills full of debris, it also paid out roughly $1.7 million (fiscal year) to consigners, further strengthening the local economy. Unsold items are regularly donated to the Pines of Sarasota and Habitat for Humanity. The Woman's Exchange collects used bags, boxes and newspapers from volunteers to re-use in its local retail establishment. The same goes for any packing materials received. The Woman's Exchange also reuses hangers and refills cleaning products. During the recent remodel, 40 plus used shelving units, displays, check-out counter, rug room racks and cabinets were purchased from local retail establishments such as: Borders Books, Leather Express, Robb and Stucky and a Jewelry Store on St. Armand's Circle.
