Green Market Square- Steph talking to a vendor

Green Market Square

1) What is the name of the proprietor or store? Where else do they sell their goods?  Where are you from and do you like it here?  Why did you move?

The man that I met at the Green Market Square was John.  He only sells the goods at this location.  He was originally from the Congo, but moved here because of the political unrest in the Congo.

2) What type of goods do they sell?  Where are the goods from?

John sold many different types of jewelry and he said that he got the materials from South Africa as well as the Congo and some other African countries.

3) Why do they sell here?  How much for the rent for the month?

John sold here because it was the only place that he could afford to sell the goods.  He would not tell the amount that he pays for rent because someone else pays his rent for the stall.

Pan African Market

1) What is the name of the proprietor or store? Where else do they sell their goods?  Where are you from and do you like it here?  Why did you move?

The man that I met at the Pan African Market was originally from Kenya and his name was Anthony.  That spot was the only station that he was selling his goods at.  He originally moved to South Africa 10 years ago to get away from the bad economy of his country.  He lost his job and thought that he should have a fresh start somewhere new, but he wants to go back because he does not like it here.

2) What type of goods do they sell?  Where are the goods from?

He sold a lot of trinket type things such as key chains and jewelry and pieces of artwork.  The goods were from all over Africa.

3) Why do they sell here?  How much for the rent for the month?

He would not tell me the exact amount for the rent of the place, but he said that it was expensive for him.  He sold there because he knew of the activity and he liked the people that were around him in the other stalls.

The Blue Shed

The name of the store was Original Tea Bag Designs.  They sell their products in the kiosk as well as at the factory where the pieces are made.  The lady was from South Africa and she likes it much better now that she has a job that is close to where she lives, and it is something that she truly enjoys doing.

2) What type of goods do they sell?  Where are the goods from?

They sell tea bag art.  People send them their used tea bags from all over the world and the company dries them, and uses them to make designs and artwork.

3) Why do they sell here?  How much for the rent for the month?

The lady was just one of the many employees that worked there so she did not know how much the rent was.
