9 July Report, Awards & Workshop Wed 13 July

Many thanks to all who participated and supported the Pocket Money Market on Saturday at Longbeach Mall.

We had 18 Stalls and 33 young entrepreneurs with an absolutely superb array of goods on offer. The stalls looked so beautiful and it is so great to see how some of the children have progressed over the last year.

I am missing Robert’s sheet (Robert…you can’t come back until you sort this:) and he is usually our top earner…but in general the accounting sheets are getting much better. There are a few who need some help and I hope you will come tomorrow so we can work through them.

Top earners were Ethan and Ethan of Double Trouble – Congratulations! They were followed by My Take by Hannah, Cook & Craft, SA Cool Trading Kids and Fancy Fairies.

I must congratulate all the children on their stunning stalls and great sales vibe. I won’t list everyone individually here but you were all fabulous. The Mall is quite a tough trading environment compared to the farm market venues and you were all superb.

One special mention is to Sydney Wolf as most improved – both her display and sales have shown a huge improvement – WELL DONE!

ENTREPRENEUR OF THE DAY went to Khaya Reischmann. Khaya has refined his stall and upped his game dramatically since joining us in April. Well done Khaya!


Very well done too to the SA Cool Trading Kids from HOKISA on their first market. They did really well and came in the top earners, not too shabby for their first outing. They have come in under the outreach arm and I would love to hear from anyone with nominations for more candidates. Their first market is sponsored and they are given all the set up and training. Thereafter they need to reinvest but the assistance continues.

We gave away two sets of double tickets to the Two Oceans Aquarium in the lucky draw, well done to Alan and Lorinda, our lucky winners!

Many thanks to Longbeach Mall for hosting us once again, much appreciated. Thanks also to Nikki Mountifield for all her help and to Sharon Moller too. Once again the Rotary folks came to support us and their shopping and interaction with the traders is so valuable.

Please join us tomorrow from 2-4pm for a free WORKSHOP & AWARDS Ph 0833840590 to RSVP and for directions. Please bring a snack to share. Votes for awards are also welcome from anyone who has attended markets in June and July. It will not be as structured as our past events, we will do some roll play selling, some accounting sheets and work on ideas for improving profits over the summer season we are all waiting for! Plus a money wise chat about security, fake notes, how much to save, invest and set aside for capital investment and R&D. The there will be time for 121’s. I am keen to offer a platform for sales between markets, send me ads for Facebook and the website if you like. As always all input and suggestions are always welcome as is anyone who would like to speak. Kids are welcome to stay after if lifts are an issue…they can work on their online marketing. 

Lots of photo are up on the Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/PocketMoneyMarketSA/photos/?tab=album&album_id=1747617178787421 and below are a few too.

As always I am looking for prizes and print sponsors. I am self funding so any assistance would be greatly appreciated. I’d also love to get t-shirts and caps printed.
