FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS :

HOW ARE THE SHOPS FINANCED?
Our only income is from the money raised as our donated goods are sold. As with the running of any business, there are costs involved - monthly rental of premises, security, telephone, etc. Each shop employs a fulltime Manageress and a part-time Promoter/Overseer. Other staff are volunteers which we deeply depend on from our supportive churches. Once all expenses are paid, 50% of the shop profits are distributed locally by the Shop Management Board, and 50% are distributed nationally, by the Baptist Women's Department.

WHAT ARE THE SHOP PROFITS USED FOR?
We support theological students, pastors' widows, manses in crisis and selective women's ministry projects. Each shop should have an updated brochure which is made available to any church or individual interested in the distribution of the profits. Financial transparency and accountability is essential in this ministry. We value every opportunity to give God all the glory for His wonderful provision!

WHAT DO WE SELL AT OUR HIDDEN TREASURE SHOPS?
All used and sometimes new, household goods... furniture, linen, ornaments, paintings, kitchenware, electrical appliances, cutlery and crockery, pots and pans, clothing, jewelry, make-up, shoes, hats, tools, toys, games, cd's, dvd's, videos, books and magazines, sporting equipment, stationary... everything and anything!!

We would love to partner with you and set up a "Hidden Treasure" Shop in your area. You may have an orphanage, home for the elderly, single mothers or ministry to drug addicts, which needs financing.
