The Treasure Shop operates as a 501(c)3 non-profit organization for making donations to local charitable organizations that benefit Active Duty members, retirees, veterans and their families. It functions as a consignment shop - no clothes or shoes are accepted, except uniforms, and those are reclaimed or donated.
Chartered in 1973, the Treasure Shop operates as a consignment shop on Naval Station Norfolk. It’s a unique place to buy and sell, where customers can find it all, from furniture to fine china, luggage to linens, jewelry, tools, books and sometimes even a kitchen sink.
The Treasure Shop offers consignors an eclectic facility to sell their stuff (70%-30% share in selling price). And it offers shoppers a fun experience, full of surprises at great prices. No clothes or shoes accepted for consignment. All uniform items are reclaimed or donated, with tax receipt provided upon request.
In August of each year all proceeds from Shop sales are totaled and the Shop’s Board of Directors (day managers, uniform manager, Advisor, and bookkeeper) vote to distribute the funds among at least 20 local charitable organizations. The annual list of charitable distributions is posted at the Shop and the current list is available upon request. The Treasure Shop Bylaws are also available upon request.
