For over a century, the Woman’s Exchange of Memphis — one of the city’s longest continually operating nonprofits — has been paving the way for seamstresses and craftspeople, artisans and consignors, to carry on the tradition of helping others to help themselves.
The shop features a carefully curated selection of handmade goods from pottery, jewelry and notecards to one-of-a kind gifts and heirloom quality children’s clothing. The Tea Room boasts Southern cooking at its best — from salads and finger sandwiches to hot entrees and homemade desserts, a mid-day tradition in Memphis since 1962.
Founded in 1882, the organization is 96% run by volunteers.
