How It Works

Fun Services provides all the planning and promotional materials, supplies, and QUALITY merchandise. All the school has to do is arrange for a few workers for the 3-5 days the “Shop” is open. The merchandise is provided on CONSIGNMENT and supplies are provided FREE! You pay only for the merchandise not returned to Fun Services. You can choose to make the profit margin you want: 0%, 10%, or 20%, depending on your needs. Fun Services delivers & picks-up at no charge.

In most schools the gift shop is held during school hours so that each child has an opportunity to participate if he or she wants. It’s easiest to run if the children are allowed to shop one classroom at a time.

Operating a Holiday Gift Shop/Santa Secret Shop program is an excellent SERVICE PROJECT for the school to perform for its community. If your school is limited in the number of fund raisers it can hold each year, holding the HOLIDAY GIFT SHOP as a SERVICE PROJECT is an excellent alternative.

HOW TO HOLD A HOLIDAY OR SANTA SHOP

One of the most satisfying experiences your child can have is to be able to say, as you open your presents during the Holiday Season, is “Surprise, I did it myself!” For more than two decades, the HOLIDAY GIFT SHOP program has given children this satisfying experience by helping them do their own Holiday Shopping.

How? By supplying schools with one of the most unique service and fund-raising programs ever developed. With help from volunteer workers, students learn valuable lessons on how to budget, select appropriate gifts, make purchases, and handle money in the warm & comfortable atmosphere of the school. They are able to choose gifts for their parents, family, friends, and of course themselves, at bargain prices and SECRETLY! Best of all, it’s so much fun they don’t realize they are learning.

"We have used Fun Services for the last three years for our Santa Shop. Their services have improved our shop tremendously. They provide excellent customer support during our sale. I wish every PTA event we have would run so smoothly. We love the points we earn and use them for inflatable rentals for our School Carnival year after year."
