The kids’ mar­ket un­der the Canopies in Porirua on De­cem­ber 11 was a suc­cess, or­gan­is­ers say, with an­other one al­ready planned for March.

It was the third mar­ket Porirua City Coun­cil has held, with chil­dren aged five to 12 sell­ing pre-loved toys, games, books and other items, along with plenty of home­made food, like cup­cakes, brown­ies and fudge. The youth­ful stall­hold­ers had put a lot of ef­fort into prepa­ra­tion, said the coun­cil’s Helen Brookes.

The event was limited to 60 stalls, but could have had 100, the in­ter­est was that great.

It was a case of first in, first served, so there will be a need to reg­is­ter early be­fore the next one, she said.

‘‘We’re pretty rapt with how it went and it was great to see how many peo­ple came down. There were plenty of bar­gains but I heard that some of the kids made over $100.’’ left, young­sters Laiyah Se­veali’i, Aysia Saolele, Jodeci FaraimSaolele, Leikin PereaSaolele, Macy Pau’u and Ella Pau’u put a lot of their own time into mak­ing de­li­cious cakes and treats, which sold well.

Happy hol­i­days: Out to spread Christ­mas cheer, and make a few bucks from their home­made bis­cuits were, from left, Leata Samoa, Evelina Gaualofa and
