Market a homemade hit
Good day of trading
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.
