Treasures Quality Resale Shoppe’s business model was originally that of a garage sale. In fact, it was a garage sale! In 1994, the plan was simply to create a unique opportunity to generate resources to support Bridgehaven Pregnancy Support Center. Treasures Quality Resale Shoppe has since grown into a clothing and home goods shop with most items donated from the community.
The Shoppe has two full-time employees, but is primarily run on volunteer power - almost 100 per month - and some for over 30 years! Treasures often joins Bridgehaven to help provide women and families material support, like hosting their annual Coat Distribution each fall. They've also partnered with Kirkwood Community College's career trainings pathways program, KPACE, to provide students business attire for interviews.
Items available for purchase and accepted are clean, good-condition donations, include clothing for women, men and children, jewelry and accessories, baby gear, toys and books, linens and curtains, home décor, holiday items, small appliances and lamps, dishes and glassware, and fabric and craft items.
Bridgehaven is a not-for-profit, faith-based pregnancy resource center working to create a positive impact helping women and families make life-affirming, healthy choices. This mission and goal has been in place since 1983.
