Woman's Exchange Gift Shop
The Woman's Exchange of St. Augustine was founded in 1892 as part of the National Federation of Woman's Exchanges, which was established to help women in need. Federation members gave women a chance to place their handmade items and home-cooked food in an Exchange store, where they were sold. Some of these original Woman's Exchanges are still operating today.
The customers of the original Woman's Exchange of St. Augustine were the guests at Henry Flagler's opulent hotels. Today, the shop offers visitors to the nation's oldest city a chance to find unique hand-crafted items. The shop is located in the historic Peña-Peck House at 143 St. George Street.
The Woman's Exchange of St. Augustine also provides tours of the historic Peña-Peck House, hosts popular fundraising luncheons twice a year for scholarships for women returning to college, and manages the use of the beautiful grounds and gardens of the Peña-Peck House as a unique venue for special events and weddings.
