16, 20 & 21 Dec events plus awards and free workshop

Hi everyone and welcome to the new traders!

We are pretty much full for 16 and 20 Dec in Rondebosch but let me know if you wish to join and I’ll try make a plan. We also trade every Thursday( except 21 Dec at Carols) Cape point Vineyards. Please drop me a line if you are able to bring a table. I’ll waive the stall fee – we have people wishing to join but no more tables available.
 
Please see each event detailed below:
Thursdays at Cape point Vineyards: Dec 2017: 21, 28. Jan 2018 4, 11,18, 25Bookings on the Monday for the Thurs via Whatsapp (Join the CPV group by sending a request to 0833840590). Trade from 4:30 to sunset. Outdoors, sun, wind etc so please check the forecast when booking and be prepared. 5 Tables available so we share if needs be, up to 10 traders. Tables must be confirmed by 9am on Tuesdays. Mainly tourists so Made in Noordhoek/Cape Town lables are a good idea. Kids activities are also great so long as you can manage in the wind.
Thurs 21 Dec: Oni & King, Khaya, Beauty, Glitter & Skins, Frantastic, Michaela – Face PaintSweet Tooth Brothers, Cook & Craft
Rondebosch Venue:Map: https://external.fcpt1-1.fna.fbcdn.net/map_tile.php?v=29&osm_provider=2&x=18065&y=19674&z=15&language=en_GB Cnr Campground & Sandown Roads, Rondebosch, 7700 Cape Town, Western Cape
Tables supplied, please bring chairs, cloth, sign etc. Umbrellas and Gazebos welcome. Vehicles may unload on site BEFORE 8:45 and then must be parked off site so you cannot have your car at the stall. You can only bring vehicles in much later so I think its easier to unload from the road, we are near the corner of Sandown and Campground roads, its about 20m to carry and you can unload on the pavement quite easily. Some shade but don’t depend on it! Gazebos and brollys are welcome. Outdoor venue and we trade in the wind, only rain will cancel so please check the forecast and decide if you are game. Saturday looks breezy but Rondebosch is not as bad as some parts of Cape Town! However plan a fairly robust display;)

The Soap Cellar
Parents wishing to trade at Rondebosch we are short of tables. I am working on it. Let me know if you have a table. I have Marianne, Ben and Marrihett and Anjo looking for tables. And myself.
GENERAL:
Please remember: NO SINGLE USE PLASTICS at any of our events and regular traders BRING YOUR PLEDGE.

 
Tables are provided for all the kids stalls but you may like to bring a chair. Please bring a cloth.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 half an hour before the end please, if you need help please just ask during the market. This needs to be completed in order to gain a certificate. 
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!
STALL FEES:These are totally voluntary, however it teaches a good lesson about overheads. As there is always a rush to pack up at the end please calculate your stall fees as follows: Work out your net profit on the accounting sheet by the end of trading. It really helps to use this sheet when you prep and keep it up to date while you trade. You are welcome to customize for your products. Fees are not compulsory but do teach the concept of overheads. The general idea is a maximum of R50 per stall but not more than 20% of net profit. This should motivate accurate costings;) If you are raising funds or require start up assistance no fees apply. Please calculate before the end of the market, ask if you need help and if needs be wait until after. The accounting is an important part of PMM, please do not gloss over it.I would prefer fees to be paid electronically into the PMM back a buddy account: https://www.backabuddy.co.za/champion/project/give-the-pocket-money-market-wings-to-fly If you are happy to do this please write that on the accounting sheet too so I can reconcile. Use your stall name as a ref. You are more than welcome to pay ahead for those of you who know you do well…I can always hold credit if needs be.
ADVERTS
Please send a Jpeg advert as soon as possible, at least three days before the event. I will be sending out links with the ads and it is compulsory to share them please. Please feel free to call me on 0833840590 if you would like any help or have questions. 
 
As always thanks for your support. New traders feel free to shout for help. I think everyone is in the whatsapp group but if not message me on 0833840590.
 
We have some money coming in Jan for our annual awards and a party! I am planning last week of the holidays. There will be a short workshop section, followed by awards and an activity….if we find a suitable venue it will be tie dye. I’m looking at 10 or 11 Jan, 10am to 2pm. All welcome, past and present traders. Non traders may join but will be asked to contribute to costs. Venue suggestions welcome, I have a venue in the far south but perhaps we need more central. If you are keen drop me a line.
 
Full lists of stalls along with the fabulous adverts the kids have made are on our Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/PocketMoneyMarketSA
 
We have also had a great little story this week: One of our regular traders is teenager names Khaya and he is a competition skater. He has been saving for a new board and made his target during trading on Saturday. He went directly from the market to Billabong with his cash still in his market tin. The manager queried where he got the money and when Khaya explained he was trading at the Pocket Money Market she was amazing and gave him a huge discount. He was over the moon!
 

 
I am so so proud of these creative and dedicated youngsters, they are more professional than many adult traders and keep impeccable accounting records. They are a delight to work with and customers get awesome products at great prices while they are doing something real to fight unemployment in SA.
 
All traders also sign a Plastic Free Pledge and we permit no single use plastics.
 
This is an NPO, everyone is welcome, start up assistance is available and there are no mandatory fees.
See you at the market!
