The shop in Raval de Cristo does not sell items on commission.
They have items donated to them and if any need repairing, cleaning etc. they do that, before selling them on.
Non profit making.
I am not aware of any shop in the area that offers, what you have mentioned.
Keep us posted if you decide to have a garage sale.

Rent, rates, electricity? Not a small shop, but large warehouse.
Spares, repairs, on items donated?
Cleaning, washing, mending of items of clothing?

There are a few people involved and they have all put money in to start it off.They will be paying themselves back before any net profit is made.

Non profit doesn't mean there will be no profit it means profit isn't the aim of the business. The overheads are paid and new stock acquired and the workers are paid a decent wage and any excess is also put back into the operation or into the aims of the organisation(funding and expenses for the workshops on recycling for example). It sounds like the initial investment will be paid off the same as any business loan to a startup and then any excesses will be rolled back in to their aims. I'm sure there are better definitions of non profit out there but I have found sometimes that people have trouble with the idea. The capitalist view of profit being the be all and end all seems to rule.
This way the community gains an asset that aims to be beneficial for the community without the profit motive.

l'm sorry if you are confused Bulldog.
l ask a simple question.
When you are in business you can not be None Profit. All the charity shops may call themselves None-Profit but the excess money goes to there nominated cause. Be it Dogs-Cats- the Church-  Save the Children- Red X the list is endless for these good causes.
As Bruixot says: any excess is also put back into the operation or into the aims of the organisation(funding and expenses for the workshops on recycling for example).l can see what your saying. Fine but when those overheads have been met What then? Do they donate the excess ( which is profit ) to a worthy cause?
lt seams to me that some sections of society think that profit is an ugly word.

Still confused but I'm sticking, I think with you skibob as for profit being ugly other half says she likes ugly well she said she married me. ( do you think she's having a go at me skibob? )any chance of being added to the list above.
Yours a Bulldog in need awaiting confirmation of being added to list.
P.S. If successful bank details can be sent.
