The Clothing Exchange is a well-established consignment thrift shop, staffed entirely by WCL volunteers. It was started in the 1940's as a way to help with the clothing shortage during the war, especially clothing for children. Originally housed at Weston Town Hall, it is the Town's oldest service agency. People from more than thirty surrounding towns come to the Exchange to shop. Today, approximately thirty women give their time to this endeavor, providing a major source of funds for the league's Service and Scholarship Fund. The proceeds continue to be a major source of funds for the league's Service and Scholarship Fund.
While only Weston residents may open an account to sell articles, everyone is welcome to shop. Articles are accepted on a donated or consigned basis with The Exchange retaining fifty percent of the selling price of consigned goods. Periodic markdowns and special sales stimulate turnover. The well-stocked clothing rooms for men, women and children offer an outstanding selection ranging from leisurewear to formal attire. The Boutique offers small collectibles, antiques and jewelry.
