About Us

Give the Gift that Gives Back!

 We are a nonprofit organization that is part of the national Federation of Woman's Exchanges, the oldest continually operating charity in the U.S.  The Federation consists of 20 shops across 13 states. Our store's yearly profits are donated to local charities. Since 1980, we have donated over $600,000 to Monmouth County charities, including Lunch Break, Mary's Place, Saturday Soup, and Meridian Behavioral Health. 


We are also a member of the Little Silver Business and Professional Association.

Our History

In 1934, we opened as the Woman’s Exchange of Monmouth County, a depression-era means for women to sell their fine knitting, handmade children’s wear, and other creations.  In 1950, our gift shop moved from its original location in the rear of an electric store in Rumson to Church Street in Little Silver.  A new shop with over 900 feet of selling space was built at the Church Street site in 1985. 

In 2019, we changed our name from the Woman's Exchange to Little Silver Gifts.  We remain the same shop with the same cheerful staff, handmade merchandise, & great customer service!
