Our Story

The Little Exchange Fine Gifts is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit boutique located in Oakwood, a suburb of Dayton, Ohio. Staffed by almost 90 volunteers, the shop has donated nearly $1.7 million to Dayton Children’s Hospital since its inception. The Little Exchange is known for perfect bridal and baby gifts, infant clothing, unique décor for the home, and men’s and women’s gifts for all occasions.

From humble beginnings, the idea for The Little Exchange was first conceived by a group of friends in the spring of 1950. The shop became known as a unique place in Oakwood to find one-of-a-kind gifts that soon evolved into a much greater purpose for the Dayton community.
