The Open SuitCase Store
201 Main Street
Rapid City, South Dakota, 57701
It has been on my heart for many years to buy products from artisans in the areas we work and visit. Many people make beautiful hand crafted items that they sell but don't have an outlet other than their local markets. In November 2016 this dream became a reality with we opened a small global market, The Open Suitcase. We have been able to purchase products when we travel, as well as partner with many other ministries that have relationships with artisans within their ministries. We are able to give people hope and dignity when they realise what they do has value and it brings them an income. Everyone who works at the store volunteers their time so that we are able to donate our profits. (After over head expenses such as rent, and running costs) We give to our own local community as needs arise and in the communities where we and our partners work. This has been beneficial and a huge blessing as our ministry is small and we simply do not have enough to meet all the needs. Please visit our website and check out our Facebook page. We hope by the new year to offer online sales, but for now if you see a product you like please just contact us and we can see about mailing to you, and if you have any question please contact me, I'd love to hear from you, there is a contact link on the store FB page.
