I am absolutely thrilled to announce we have been given a great new venue!
We have 10 stalls every Thursday at the fabulously popular Cape Point Vineyards Community Market.
The first one is already on 4 Feb so please help me make the most of this amazing opportunity by booking a stall.
Bookings are open for 4, 11, 18 and 25 Feb here: https://docs.google.com/forms/d/1sX_5GJAh7sJr4iNLBf7FjfGHipEpuPmgs9muWOODp0c/viewform Please complete the form with all details, otherwise you application cannot be processed.
Trading will be from 5 to 7pm, older chidren may trade on later if they wish.
Setup details will follow, we need to be mindful of traffic as this is a BUSY market.
Venue: Cape point Vineyards, Silvermine Road, Noordhoek
Contact Linda: 0833840590
Applications will work on first come first serve with some preference to those who attended in 2015 if we are oversubscribed. If you wish to attend more than one a month that will be possible if all applicants have been accomodated and there is still space.
Stalls are R50 for one or 2 children and an extra R10 for additional children. Tables are provided at this venue.
Goods and services:
Please note some details may change as we are still in the trial phase at this venue. We may not clash with existing vendors, details are in the booking form.
ACTIVITY STALLS ARE ENCOURAGED. I prefer to avoid “made in China”. Please note electricity points are not available.
I would encourage a variety of items for their first market to get a feel for what sells. Plants, veggies and herbs, crafts, activities like guessing the number of sweets in a jar, temporary tattoos and nail decoration are all fun and easy. I suggest keeping some items small and simple and selling them at lower prices but a few larger items with a higher return help to bump up profits a lot. Awards will take into consideration things like the originality of the products, cost of production, how much parental assistance is required, display, salesmanship and profit, among others. Recycling, upcycling and creativity are encouraged.
The young children battle to concentrate for two hours so I advise keeping the set up time minimal and stalls simple. The children will get a simple sheet to complete with expenses, float, takings and profit. This is compulsory as the aim of this project is to educate. As this is an evening event, accounting forms can be completed at home and returned via e-mail. Certificates will then me emailed back unless you prefer to collect at a later stage. Awards will take place monthly and winners will be given opportunities to trade at the bigger events in the year and a early booking option for each month.
I am looking for children who would like to become Pocket Money Market photographers and reporters too.
As always feedback, suggestions, help and sponsors or donations to costs and prizes are welcome as are volunteers to assist with the outreach children, graphic design, PR and loads more!
Many thanks to Cape Point Vineyards for this fantastic oppotunity. I look forward to seeing you there.
