Yesterday the boys and I set up our annual
Reindeer Food Shoppe
The boys had so much fun playing real shops.
We placed this sign out on the road,
did some modern day marketing
via facebook, text message's and email.
Word got around town pretty fast and trade was brisk
They set up shop at 9am,
we decided if they had a sleep in the arvo
they would be able to stay up late
and trade into the evening,
so of they went to catch some zzzzzz's
We all did actually :)
We placed our trading table out on the footpath
and the boys still made money while they slept!
Evening trade was a little slower, but still steady.
Thismorning we tallied up the loot and had
not bad for 50 cents a bag,
the boys are not sure what to spend their earnings on yet.
I think it should be something for mum
for filling all those little bags!)
It was a big day, closing up shop at 10pm
the boys thoroughly enjoyed themselves,
as did the grown ups and the customers.
Thanks to everyone that called by
and well done to the 3 little boys to stick it out all day
Plans are already under way for next years shoppe.
Note: I have been creating, just can't show them yet.
