Eighteen-year-old Anna Watt has a plan to earn a few extra bucks before heading off to university this year.

With the help of her friends, the Nagle Catholic College graduate will organise a Geraldton Youth Market next month.

Ms Watt had the idea after she started packing for university.

“I was starting to organise a lot of my stuff and I just realised how many unnecessary things I have,” she said.

“I started to think I’m not going to need most of this at uni and a lot of my friends were having the same problem.

“So I thought why don’t we bring everyone together and sell it all in a market.”

It’s not only second-hand goods Ms Watt has brought together; she already has friends selling creative goods including handmade candles, arts and craft.

There will also be a fundraiser barbecue.

She is looking for others to jump onboard, with ideas of any sort welcome.

“We’re open to just about anything but we really want Geraldton students and youth to be able to get involved with their ideas,” she said.

“We’ve got a lot of second-hand goods and we’re open to people wanting to sell art, music, services, food and just about anything you can think of.

“I would really love a whole variety of products and stalls. It’s a great chance to sell some of your own goods and earn a bit of money on the side.”

The markets will be held on the Thursday evening of February 4, most likely at at Lester Park, but could be moved closer to town closer to the date.
