THE inaugural Ladies Night Market took place on Saturday night in Gonubie where women entrepreneurs had their stock on show.
The sound of the ocean served as a relaxing backdrop served as relaxation for the eager ladies as they mixed and mingled.
Market organiser Desire White said that the aim of this market is to hold it at least once every month.
“I want the ladies to get their names out there while providing a relaxed atmosphere to do business and meet vendors. There’s quite a wide variety of products available,” she said.
There were various stalls on displaying a range of goods, such paintings, bone china, and skin care beauty products.
Pure Romance stall exhibitor Liesel Openshaw said she enjoyed the intimate atmosphere.
“It’s a really fantastic initiative, and we all know ladies love to shop. It also gives us a chance to see how we could possibly collaborate with other business as some products compliment each other,” she said.
Furever Homes, specialising in the steriliszation of stray cats since March, also introduced themselves.
“We rescue and find homes for the cats. So far, we’ve placed 120 kittens. We’d like to create awareness and also urge people to not just to dump their kittens,” co-founder Amy Long said.
“We’re in the process of registering as an NPO. In the meantime, the public can drop off donations at Sugar.com in Nahoon or visit our Facebook page,” she said.
White said that they aim to make this a regular market on the last Saturday of each month at the Heavenly Pancake House.
