Market Day!

WALT: Write an interesting and detailed recount.

On the eleventh of September, Team four had our Market Day, which was awesome! We bought, sold, advertised, sold out and more. Everyone got PT’s and Pieces from selling and out of their bank. The kitchen business got money very very easily.   

Our six business’ Toys, Kitchen, Custom Stationery, Jewellery, Musical Instruments and Homeware. We have been working towards that day all term. Before the Market Day had happen, all the business’ had been creating loads of their products in their smaller groups. Some of the people in our team got lots and lots of money, but the others got only a little because their products sold out.

The Market happen between morning tea and lunch, so had to set up our stalls before Morning Tea. We went to our business’ and set up a table and put our products on. After Morning Tea, the Market started and everyone got loads of customers, sold lots of products and got lots of money.

I was the first to sell and I was doing well until the end of the first half. I made four PT and sold five of my products. My partner came by once or twice and was cheering for me, which was nice. Towards the end of the first half, my product sold out and I couldn’t sell any more. When my partner came for the swap, she made way more money than me and I was really happy for her. After I had finished selling at my stall, I went to shopping which was interesting.

Once the Market had started, I was at my stall selling my product. When it was my turn to buy, I went to every business and bought something or to picked up my order. I bought a drum, bow and arrow and some loom band key rings. I picked up my name label sticker, Maths book cover and fudge cake. After I had done all that shopping, I had no money left. I did not want to go back to my stall to sell so I just advertised my friend’s product until the end of the Market.

The word for the Market Day for me was probably, interesting. This is because, well I was selling I sold out and well I was buying, I ran out of money. It was really strange that I ran out of something during both halts of the Market. I really hope that my small group will finish all our orders before the end of the term (which is next week!).
