We Are Luxury On a Mission

At North Shore Exchange, we believe designer consignment can also be a force for good. Since 2013, with our unique, award-winning combination of authentic luxury consignment, designer shopping, and volunteerism, we've been on a mission to improve the lives of our neighbors facing the trauma of poverty.

Our grants, made annually to worthy charities in the Chicagoland region, address the critical needs of abuse, hunger, homelessness, mental health, and more. Take a look at the list of worthy organizations that have received a combined total of over $2,000,000 in grants awarded to date, and learn how your organization could be considered. Want to join us?

North Shore Exchange is an independent, woman-founded and volunteer-led 501*(C)3 nonprofit organization. When you shop, consign, or donate with us, you're making a difference in the lives of Chicagoland children and families in need.
