A consignment store like no other


Awarded the "2016 Retail Business of the Year" by the Greater Sarasota Chamber of Commerce, The Exchange is a favorite haunt for Sarasota residents and a "must visit" destination site for visitors from around the world.  In her recent book, I Brake for Yard Sales, Lara Spencer, of ABC's "Good Morning America" and PBS's "Antiques Roadshow," lists this 15,000 sq. foot cache of affordably priced treasures as one of her favorite places to shop. 

Dedicated to the support of Sarasota and Manatee counties' local arts community since its inception in 1962, over 260 dedicated volunteers work to ensure that the ever changing inventory is filled to the brim with such amazing finds as Baccarat crystal, Tiffany silver, Gucci handbags, fine jewelry, men's/women's clothing, high-end furniture and oriental rugs. Awarding $9 million dollars in grants and scholarships, we invite you to come see how  "Together We Can Make a Difference."

The idea was to provide a business way of supporting the arts. Elizabeth Lindsay, Co-founder

Featured in Travel Mag’s 12 Unique Things to Do in Sarasota.

The Exchange was recently featured in a Travelmag article about things to do in Sarasota. Here is what Travelmag had to say about the Exchange:

“One of the most unique shopping destinations in Sarasota is this large non-profit consignment store offering a diverse assortment of affordably priced furniture, along with women’s clothing, jewelry, crystal, china, silver, art, linens, oriental rugs and more. Founded in 1962 with the aim of supporting the local arts community, its success has led to several million dollars in grants and scholarships down the years, and it continues to play a crucial role in the Sarasota area, as well as providing visitors with a quirky retail experience.”
