Molokai Treasures

Molokai Treasures News Release

Molokai’s newest store knows better than anyone that one man’s trash is another man’s treasure. A new consignment store on the island named Molokai Treasure plans to recycle items that you no longer need and sell them to those in need.

It began as an idea to help keep useable items out of the landfill and having it re-used by others who could make use of items such as appliances, furniture, clothing, extra construction materials and many other new or used goods.  The idea continues to grow as our economic situation worsens and family needs still have to be met.  As a consignment store, a person can come in to bring new or slightly used goods and receive an agreed upon payment after the goods are sold. This is a win-win-win for everyone.  The seller makes some money of unwanted items, the store has inventory to offer the community at much reduced prices, and we all help the environment. There’s a bit more to it but this is the basic foundation.

If all goes well, owners John And Debbie Kelly hope to open Moloka`i Treasures sometime this week at the Meyer Building.

“We’re like everyone else, doing the best we can with what we have.  We’ve gotten quite a bit of support from our friends and other community members.  Where else could we start a business that depends so much on each other, but on Moloka`i,”  Debbie Kelly said.
