Each stall is required to have a sign and complete the accounting sheet provided as well as sending in a pre market advert. All children fulfilling this will get a certificate of participation and there will be an Entrepreneur of the Day. 

 

There is a non-compulsory registration fee  R50 for 1 or 2 children and an extra R20 for additional children. If you are unable to pay this fee please contact me to apply for a reduced fee or a free stall. I do however think it is a good idea to teach the children the concept of rent and overheads. I usually collect this after the accounting sheets are in and keep it below 20% of net profit.

Trestle tables are provided and there are some chairs too, but you may like to bring a chair. Please bring a cloth.

We are trading from 10:30 am to 1:00pm,  I am happy for you to arrive at 10:00 if your set up is quick.

We are outside Edgars on the main concourse, table choice is first come first serve.

Remember your change float.

I attach the new 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!

Please feel free to call me on 0833840590 if you would like any help or have questions.

Lastly traders kindly confirm with a mail or message you have this mail and are 100% confirmed if you have not done so.

Thanks for your support and massive thanks to Longbeach Mall for hosting us.

Cheers

Linda

Next event 25 March (19th March postponed)

Hello everyone!

Its such a stunning day today, but the most recent weather update says it starts blowing from midday tomorrow and stays that way. I am very mindful that some of our traders are little and we have FUN as one of our 3 pillars – trading in the howling wind is just not fun. Also we can’t keep the umbrellas up so we have no shade and that’s not cool in the midday sun.

So with great reluctance I am going to cancel this Sunday’s market at Noordhoek Farm Village. It was our last outdoor event for the summer, we have space for everyone next Saturday in Longbeach Mall, please let me know if you are able to join there. I am really sorry….and unsure as you just never know and it may turn out to be a perfect day! But after last weekend I think caution may be best.

I am really sorry and hope the kids all understand.

Next 2 markets, free workshop & awards…

Hi all,

Lots of children are busy writing assessments and finish in a week or so. We start with markets again on Sunday 19 March at Noordhoek Farm Village from 10:30-1 and then the following Saturday 25 March we trade at Longbeach Mall again.

Then schools break up at the end of March so we have a FREE HOLIDAY WORKSHOP & AWARDS on Wed  5 April from 2:30 to 4:30pm with time for individual coaching afterwards.This workshop will concentrate on marketing and sales. We work on strategy, sales techniques and advertising with some layout tips for posters and online advertising strategies. We will look at target markets and how to maximize free reach. There will also be a segment on online safety for children. Parents are welcome to attend. If anyone is able to sponsor prizes, certificates or snacks for our workshop that would be amazing.

On Sunday 9 April we have a Market in Rotary Park, Green Point. This is a great venue for children, on the promenade with an outdoor mini ice rink and a little train so it should be great fun. Then on Sunday 29 April we are back at Longbeach Mall again.

All the booking links for these events and more are below.

PMM is growing up

Just a quick note to keep in touch…

We had a very busy February with three markets in a short month. Well done to all the amazing traders! March is a bit quieter as we wait for school assessments and the Argus cycle tour to pass and then trade again at Noordhoek Farm Village on 19 March from 1:30am  to 1pm. We return to Longbeach Mall on 25 March. In the holidays we have a workshop on 5 April and our first market at Rotary Park, Green Point on 9 April. Please book here: https://pocketmoneymarket.com/market-stall-bookings-for-kids/

We are getting a lot of requests from young adults who would like to trade and I am therefore making a limited number of stalls available at each event for these traders. This is open to senior students or young adults who are unemployed, particularly young unemployed parents. Senior traders will be expected to assist with running the market too. Please apply by email to linda@livelightly.co.za with a brief summary of your situation and what you would like to trade with. Attendance of workshops is mandatory for older traders.

Lastly please joing us as we plant trees with Greenpop next weekend! Or sponsor a tree here: https://pocketmoneymarket.com/sponsor-a-tree-for-r80/

Congratulations to Peyton Morgan – MADE IT PRETTY, “Entrepreneur of the Day”

Well done to all the traders who participated in the Valentines Market at Noordhoek Farm Village on Sunday! Tricky weather was handled with aplomb and we had a very wide spread of results: One stall net profit over R800, one over R500, 1 over R400, 3 over R300, 2 over R 200 and 3 over R100. I am missing quite a few sheets, please send via email or Whatsapp. Those who need help feel free to connect so we can work on improving things, but very well done all. Free stalls to any traders willing to assist with admin, capturing sheets and so on. Thanks to all the parents who support, Benson for lifting outreach kids and doing banners etc. If anyone can help with small posters/ads in print that would be awesome, happy to brand them. The variety and quality of goods and activities on offer is really quite phenomenal and keeps getting better as young minds just know no limits!

We had some extra awards as there was just so much AWESOMENESS! Well done to all the kids. Apologies for the brevity of this report – I am still hoping for a “young reporter/photographer/film maker” to pick up this ball and run! Check out the video on the Facebook page and loads more pics there too.

Many thanks again to Noordhoek Farm Village for hosting us at their delightful venue!

(Easter market still to be confirmed & I am looking for a Youth Day venue too)
Please get in touch if you would like a market in your area and have a great venue to suggest.
We are really looking forward to the return of SA Cool Trading Kids on 18 Feb after their summer break. This group from HOKISA in Masiphumulele are always a joy to work with and an inspiration to all. I also look forward to meeting all the new traders joining over the next few weeks, as well as the first round of events in planning for Mitchel’s Plein whic is super exciting.
We will also be trading at The Deer Little Market, Deer Park Cape Town on 26 Feb, 26 March and 30 April. Limited stalls, please call 0833840590 if you wish to trade here.
There will be a workshop on Wed 5 April from 2-4:30pm (school holidays). It will be in Noordhoek or possibly Fish Hoek, I’ll confirm the venue closer to the time. These are free to traders and will include awards and a social after. This workshop will focus on sales technique, marketing, displays and advertising. We will also discuss online safety and options to market via PMM and we can set up some online portals live in the workshop if you bring your photos and product details on a stick. For anyone needing the costing & pricing module, a group of 5 or more can initiate a workshop to catch up.
Please note that the safety of our children comes first. Please do not include their phone numbers on stall adverts and only emails that you are monitoring. Do not give out their contact details for orders. I am more than happy to use my contact info and forward any orders on.
If anyone is keen to help with admin, marketing & PR or to assist outreach children, I really need help. Also we need prizes, online support, mentors, speakers and a ton of other stuff. As I am teaching, term time is a bit hectic right now, holidays will be easier. I really, really want to get a proper website up and running too. And I’d love it is someone could photograph the markets and also possibly do a short report. Hannah is too busy trading to take photos, but when she did they made the papers! I have thought for years that there is huge potential for Youtube reporting too for the right budding young TV personality.
See you at the market,
Lin
