KIDpreneurs learn ropes

Meet Anna and Sarah Collins and Carly Ram, the three KIDpreneurs behind an upcoming sale of their homemade products at Comox Centre Mall on Saturday from noon to 4 p.m.

The girls, who live across the street from each other, were inspired to organize their own sale after attending the Young Entrepreneurs Sale at their school, École Robb Road.

For the past month, the girls have enthusiastically planned their business event. They started by thinking about what they would enjoy making, what people would be willing to buy, and the need to set a price to earn a profit, including re-paying their mothers for supplies.

The KIDpreneurs are getting ready to hit the pavement to market their sale by posting some flyers in the neighbourhood.

Products available to purchase include: homemade cards featuring the beauty of Filberg Park, handy magnets, herbs and vegetable plants grown from seed, rustic twig vases, and the ever-popular loom bracelets and key chains. The girls will also have homemade baked goods for sale.

The girls are finalizing the local charity of their choice and will donate 15 per cent of their earnings to give back to their community.

The mall has donated a table and space for the girls. All they need now are customers.  Come see for yourself what these talented, self-starter girls, aged seven, eight and 10 years, have to offer.
