Here is some of the feedback that we have received via email from people that have attended our markets.
After the 1st Market - Port Elizabeth November 2008 @ PE Riding Club
"Dear Lauren and all those involved !
Congratulations on a very successful day on Saturday. It really was a brilliant idea and a marvellous opportunity for all of us to obtain affordable baby items.
I was very fortunate in getting what I wanted, but I am sure many people who arrived later, were not as lucky.
I was also impressed by the good quality of the items I was lucky enough to get.The assistants were most helpful and pleasant.
A tremendous effort must have gone into the preparation for the sale and you must all be relieved that it is over, and went off well.
The few problems that there were, I am sure you could not have been envisaged, but after the first sale all the little problems will be sorted out.
"I must really compliment you ladies for taking the initiative to organise such a fantastic and affordable market.
I just wondered if it is possible to get a bigger venue for the next market, as the past market was so crowded it made shopping almost impossible.
I am sure you didn’t anticipate such a big crowd therefore the small venue. Once again congratulations and keep the prices affordable.
Mrs W Greeff"
Thank you for emailing me along with so many others with feedback on your market.
I am convinced it was a success! We were there at 8.50 and the q was looooonnnngggg - very rare for anything except soccer matches and international concerts to be attended so well around here!
A bigger venue would be great.I am excited about the next market.Good luck and much, much success for the future. What you guys are doing, is GREAT and long overdue!
After the 2nd Market - Port Elizabeth February 2009 @ German Club
I just want to Thank You for a Great Market on Saturday!I bought the exact cot that we wanted – we were there nice and early and one of the first people in the hall.
I hope that this market continues to grow and prosper as it is a really great idea! You have helped us so much by offering this service.
I also want to mention the professional outlay of the goods on sale and the helpful staff on duty. Please let them know that they did a great job!
Hoping to be at the next market, as I am sure there are a few more things we will need.My little one is only 4 months now. Have a super day!
"I have to say this: the market was BRILLIANT!
I was so surprised to see the excellent system you had decided on. It made purchasing so easy - everyone knew (after the first little while) what was going on.
And shop we did! Thank you for affording us all the opportunity to shop in a safe environment where we know exactly what we are getting. I got a stunning safeway car seat for baby and it's working great. All the (unneccesary) toys i bought are thoroughly enjoyed, and all in all i loved it!
Already I am looking forward to the next one - where i hope 2 friends will be joining me. I am working on my items to bring in to you to sell - baby at 10 months now so pram, camp cot, etc must go!
Good luck with the arrangements for the next market. Once again: brilliant!!!
After the 3rd Market - Port Elizabeth, June 2009 @ Sherwood Garden Centre
"Thanks for mail about your sale. I have regularly checked to see what is on offer.
After attending the sale yesterday; once again returned home very happy with my purchases, and regretting I did not have enough hands to hold what I had bought and wished I had gone back for more.
I really admire your initiative in starting this venture and congratulate you and your team for the improvements each time since this is the 3rd one I have attended. This latest venue was good. It must take tremendous planning and organisation getting everything ready for such an event.
Judging by the queues it is necessary for such an event and really hope your success continues in the future.
Joy Frost, Kirkwood"
"Hi Lee & Lauren
The fair on Saturday at Sherwood was a great idea because of the space available. I managed to get the cot that I wanted! At last! And toys, and clothes………..
One problem however is the pay point/s in the clothes /toys section. Maybe an idea would be to have a cordoned off area (like in the banks) at the exit so that people can queue to pay??
It appeared that one could pay for anything at any point so having more that one pay point at the exit should not be a problem.
Keep up the excellent service to the many people like myself who are not able to just “go into any shop and buy anything”.
After the 4th Market - Port Elizabeth November 2009 @ Sherwood Garden Centre
Thanks for the excellent market that you once again had. I would like to say that the pram I bought (one of you ladies ones, has found a happy home with me.)
PS, can I make a suggesting.Is it at all possible if you could have your market day maybe after the 25th of the month in order to accommodate our “pockets”
Thanks once again and hope you have a blessed xmas and a happy new year
I enjoyed the day at the market very much. Thank you!! Thanks to you guys I already started on my baby room and I’m now only 11 weeks pregnant
Can’t wait for the next one in March.
