MY Kaleidoscope at the Mansfield Bush market

Artists from MY Kaleidoscope had a successful market stall at the Mansfield Bush market over the Easter long weekend.

Artists from social enterprise MY Kaleidoscope have been developing more than just their art skills, managing their busy market stall at the Mansfield Bush market over the Easter long weekend.

The market was a great success, with five artists working in shifts at the stall throughout the day—supported by Jenny, Disability Support Worker and MY Kaleidoscope supporter.

As many of us know, market stalls are a lot of work, all of which was well-handled in the more than capable hands of the artists.

Chantelle, one of the artists and a client at the Mansfield Community Hub, was in charge of taking payment of sales at the market, after a lesson in using the payment system Square.

“Chantelle worked so hard during her shift collecting payments and talking about not only her cards and art, but also about the group, MY Kaleidoscope and Mansfield Community Hub,” said Suzanne, Assistant Service Leader at the Mansfield Community Hub.

“Leah and Lilly did an amazing job of putting sales into bags and talking to customers.”

“Jordan, another artist and client at the Hub, isn’t usually comfortable in a large busy setting, but was happy throughout his whole shift in a quieter period. So much so that his mum was able to leave and spend an hour looking around the market,” said Suzanne.

Overall feedback from customers at the market was excellent, with 3 artworks by the artists sold, and the rest of the sales being the cards created as part of the MY Kaleidoscope program. The stall brought in around $700 made in total, to be reinvested in the program.

The artists are already looking forward to their next market, where they can continue to sell their incredible artwork and continue to hone their retail skills.
