Brisbane Sunday Market: 10.05.2009

It has been an interesting day last Sunday trading at the Brisbane Market, Rocklea.

I have been selling there on Sundays for over 2 years now with a friend of mine.

I reckon we did quite okay on that day. Met some colourful characters in the form of customers. There’s this one kid who bought three battery packs from me for AUD6. He handed AUD6.50 to me and told me to keep the change. That was interesting. It’s the first time ever for me to encounter a person who voluntarily hands over loose change and say “keep the change mate!”. Well, lucky me I guess 🙂

Sunday Market: Your Items are faulty, I want my money back!

In the business of product selling, from time to time, you’ll face clients who’d like to do exchanges or even refunds due to the items bought being faulty. I don’t have a problem with that. In fact, the law demands it. What I have problems with is that some of them are just flat out lying.

Here are a couple of examples.

Sunday Market: After all, you people invented that!

Okay, hari ni aku tak rasa macam nak tulis dalam Bahasa Inggeris. Entri kali ini akan digunakan dengan bahasa bercampur-campur dan menggunakan perkataan ‘aku’.

Sebabnya, nak kutuk sesetengah golongan di Australia ni.

Topiknya, perkauman dan hal-hal yang berbau perkauman.

Ini adalah entri untuk aku meluahkan perasaan tak puas hati aku. Kalau tak suka baca benda-benda macam ni, jangan proceed.

How does a profit of 3.9% sounds to you?

How does a profit of 3.9% on your high-risk investment sounds to you? Not so attractive? That’s what I earned today with my part-time Sunday Market hobby cum business. Only 3.9% profit margin. Haha 😀

Sunday Market – Back in full swing

After a 6-month hiatus, I’m back again with my sunday activities. It’s time again to wake up at 3.30 in the morning every Sunday.

What’s so interesting about Sundays?

Well, wake up at 3.30, take a bath, perform Fajr prayers, rock off with a friend to the Sunday Market, and open up a stall.

The last time I was trading at the Sunday market was before the exams last year. After stopping for about 6 months (holidays in Malaysia and all, read about it here and here), it does take a while to get the momentum up again. At first, the prospect of waking up at 3.30am on a Sunday was unthinkable! But once you’re there, and goods started to sell, then it becomes interesting.

I first started trading in the sunday market about a year ago with a friend. Started off with no experience at all and without knowing what to expect. As time goes by, you start to get the hang of it. The money is nothing to be proud of, but hey, at least I’m doing something. Plus, the experience that you get by interacting with locals and observing how businesses are run is priceless.
