Every Tuesday from 11:30 AM - 1:30 PM 

Nicollet xChange is an open-air, pop-up swap offering an opportunity for downtowners to engage in browsing and exchanging quality & unique items in a marketplace setting. Each month will have a different theme, encouraging you to participate and swap your items all summer long. Join us throughout the summer as we pop-up in downtown Mpls on Tuesdays from 11:30 - 1:30 pm at Nicollet Mall. 


Every other week we will have a Mending and Repair Bar, with a sewing expert on sight to help you mend holes, repair buttons, or any tweaks to your loved clothing items. Our mending bar starts on June 11th with Curiosity Studio!


On opening day, June 4th, we’ll have conscious fashion experts on hand to guide you, including:

Kenny Washington @blacknvni

How to Participate

Bring any high-quality item from home or work (can be new or pre-loved), that you’d like to pass on to someone else to enjoy!

  1. Receive a token for your item that can be exchanged for another item in the marketplace. If you don’t find a new to you item you love just come back another week to browse new items that are added and swapped each week. 

  2. You are welcome to participate in the xChange as many times as you’d like! Keep the swapping going by bringing in new items and engaging all summer long. 

  3. You’ll also be offered the opportunity to share a story about the item you are exchanging! Maybe there is a great memory associated with your item or the item has a story or reminds you of something special. Then you can browse, read, and learn more about other items stories and pass on your beloved memories!
