Welcome to the Woman’s Exchange of Memphis

The Woman’s Exchange began in 1832 when women had essentially no options to earn a decent living. To this day, we provide a way for seamstresses, craftsmen, artisans, and consignors to continue the tradition of  ”helping others help themselves”.

Our History

The Woman’s Exchange in Memphis was founded in 1885 and newspaper accounts published in 1885-1900 commend its value to the community. Today, the Exchange continues the tradition of  ”helping others help themselves”  by showing and selling the handwork of hundreds of consignors and employing highly skilled seamstresses to make the signature infant and children’s clothing for which the Woman’s Exchange has become famous.
