Hewing XChange: Shop | Swap | Sweets

Dec 3, 2023

11:00 am - 4:00 pm

The Hewing XChange is a swap and shop experience showcasing local, socially conscious brands and makers. Enjoy a wintry day of sensational sweets, shopping local makers and swapping, as the Hewing Hotel is transformed into a seasonal marketplace with a sustainable twist. Grab some treats from our sweets shop or don your home with holiday swag from Atmospherist, Jason Berke and Warmhouse Story, from our pop up tree lot. Keep the holiday spirit happening with seasonal tunes from a local dj.


Find unexpected gifts by shopping our unique lifestyle local makers and shakers. From organic boho, vintage chic, to avantgarde and edgy, fresh and fun to classic heritage, this maker’s market will have something for everyone on your list, including you!

The Swap is a free exchange allowing you to discover new-to-you items in a sustainable way. To participate in our swap, bring any new or gently-loved goods that you no longer use, to exchange for a new-to-you item. Holiday themed items are suggested to swap, such as jewelry, accessories, handbags, high-quality clothing items, holiday party items, home accessories, vintage gems, or giftable items that you haven’t quite found use for. These items must be in good condition, clean, and will be vetted for quality before entering swap. Suggested value of $20 or higher.

Drop off your items at the Hewing:
Wednesday 11/29 4:30 – 6:30pm
Thursday 11/30 4:30 – 6:30pm
Friday 12/1 4:30 – 6:30 pm
Sunday12/3 11 – 12 pm

Remaining items will be donated to our non-profit partners.

You’ll be given a ticket for each of your items, to exchange for something new to you on December 3rd, 12pm – 4pm. Who knows what surprises are in store!
