Introduction to the makers
Our talented makers spend a great deal of time and tremendous expertise in hand-making all of our unique products.
Members of the Society
Each maker is a member of The Self Aid Society. They are both men and women who are quality knitters, sewers, bakers – or have a knack for toy-making or handicrafts.
For various reasons including age, ill-health, disability or financial hardship they may be in need. The support that The Society is able to provide and the sale of their products through the Treasure Trove forms an important part of many of their lives.
The very highest quality
The Society is careful that only those whose produce is of the highest quality can become a member. In this way, our shop customers can be assured that their purchases will be uniquely handcrafted to the highest possible standards - and for a very reasonable price!
Who benefits from the sale of produce?
Our members do! Each member sets their own prices for their produce and the Society only takes 10% of all sale costs to help towards administration.
