July Aug update & bookings open to Nov

Hello everyone,

Great news is I have a new computer coming in the next few weeks so coms will improve soon! This is being donated by http://www.terramanzi.co.za/ which is amazing! This one is on its last legs and very tedious to work on so I am thrilled.

Secondly I have potential sponsorship lined up but it is dependent on getting a BEE partner so if anyone has a great young person who you think would be keen please connect us.

We are super grateful to ALL PHASE ELECTRICAL who are covering the costs for Woman’s day at the V&A. They are paying for table hire, transport and lunch money for the outreach kids – massive thanks to them.

And massive thanks as always to Tina and the crew at FORWARD FUND for their ongoing support and advice. The have included me in their WIN WOMAN profile which is fantastic.

I have loaded the new dates onto the booking form so you can book the next few events: https://goo.gl/forms/CCtRPlnrRrJvmsSU2 There are dates open to November. I am looking at Century City for Heritage Day but open to any ideas. We hope to be back at the V&A in December again and we have requests for Imhoff so I will try for the Xmas fair there too as well as the Noordhoek Farm Village. Please keep the suggestions coming. Early next year we will also have a permanent shop and an online store.

The busker booking form is here: https://pocketmoneymarket.wordpress.com/buskerbookings/ and Benson is the coordinator there.

Please note there is a whatsapp group for traders and a different one for buskers, please ask if you wish to be added as it is the main communication method.

For this Saturday 29 July:

Venue: Fish Hoek Sposrtsfields (Click for gmap – the icon is Fish Hoek Squash Club)
Time: We will trade from 10:30 to 1 with the option to stay on till as late as 3pm if you like. Set up is from 9am, please be there by 10am at the latest.

Please remember NO SINGLE USE PLASTICS, I have loads of jars if anyone needs and shoe shops always have boxes if you need.

Remember your change float.

I attach the accounting sheet and suggest you complete as much as possible at home before the market.

Completed sheets must be handed in at 12:45 please, if you need help please just ask during the market.

 When you arrive, please see me and book in BEFORE setting up.

All stalls must have a sign please.

A couple of rules: No playing on cell phones during trading please, they are best packed away for security anyway.

Please try not to eat at your stall, it looks unprofessional. I know the kids get peckish and a quick bite is fine but don’t make the stall a picnic area. No gum chewing while trading please.

While younger kids need adult help I think from about 10/11 years they should be fine without and I am around if they need help. For those needing help please can we keep it to just one adult at the stall, otherwise the event loses the kiddie vibe. 

When you pack up please leave your area immaculate, if you have had messy activities please pick up any bits. 

We are all ambassadors for the PMM and I am always proud that the kids are so much more professional than the pros!

Jpeg adverts are due in by Sunday 27 August please and video adverts are optional, the V&A will flight them all too. I will send loading directions and more details next week, we are in the Watershed and have loading bay access until 11am and again after 2:30.

We have a wonderful lady to MC and play with the buskers for woman’s day – Zoe Mazula is a professional musician and experienced teacher. She also runs the Farmhouse Rocks.

Please remember PMM is a collective, everyone is more than welcome to jump in and all ideas are welcome. I’d love some help to create wonderful trader profiles to advertise each set of goods online, I have zero graphic design skill.

Thanks for all your patience and your ongoing support.
