How does the program work?

We provide your school with a gift selection of about 100 items – ALL ON CONSIGNMENT! Your volunteers set up a gift-store area in your school. Students come to the store and purchase gifts for family and friends in a safe, positive environment. All gifts are “kid priced” and we have a 100% Satisfaction Guarantee.

You decide how much you want to mark up the merchandise. Most schools do this as a service project and as such mark up just enough to cover expenses and have a little extra in the bank.

How long does it take to hold a Fun Services Gift Shop?

Most schools run 2-4 days however some are longer and some shorter depending on circumstances. No matter how long you run we will do everything we can to make it run smoothly for you.

Why do you have two logos and two program names?

The Santa’s Secret Shop was born in the late 60’s and copyrighted early in the history of the program. In addition to our regular gift line; this program contains Christmas (and upon request – religious) items to offer to families celebrating the Christmas Season.

In the late 70’s and early 80’s we introduced the Holiday Gift Shop program for schools that wanted to present the program to include students from a wider range of cultures and backgrounds. This gift program contains no Santa or Christmas type of items. (Winter and snowman are still popular and can be requested.) All of the promotional materials and supplies that are sent home and used in your shop contain our more generic Holiday Gift Shop name and logo. More schools select the traditional Santa’s Secret Shop program, though the use of Holiday Gift Shop is increasingSSSHGS

What types of items will we receive?

You will receive a variety of high quality items like what you would see in a really nice gift shop. Collectible items, frames, mugs, jewelry, ornaments, hats, tools, and licensed sports products top the list. Personalized items for Mom, Dad, Grandma, Grandpa, Aunt, Uncle, Brother, Sister are always a hit!

How much is it to run the program? When do I pay?

The only cost for the program is the amount owed for the gifts that you do not return after your program. The amount owed is determined by the participation from your students. You know the school cost (+ tax in Michigan) and will mark it up from there. Totally Risk Free! We like payment within a week of the end of your program.

How much do the items cost?

The “school cost” of the items range from .20 & $10.00. Most of the items fall between the $1.00 & $4.00 range with 80% under $5.00.

What happens if we run out of an item?
