Held on April 9, the market was described as a success by Tails and Whiskers founder Sharon Blackwell.

Beneficiaries who had stalls at the market included Edenvale Ferals, Warriors for Africa’s Wildlife and Hellen White – In the Community.

“We appreciate the support from the community, especially on such a cold day,” Sharon said.

She explained that the store’s mini-markets allow Tails and Whiskers recipients to raise funds.

The next market will be on Freedom Day (April 27), with another scheduled for Mother’s Day (May 7).

As well as inviting community members to upcoming markets, Sharon encouraged those cleaning their homes to consider donating any unwanted items, in good condition, to the charity shop.

The Third Street store sells second-hand items donated to it to raise money for several animal organizations in Gauteng.

Donations can be delivered to the back door of the store located on Eighth Avenue on Mondays and Fridays between 10:00 a.m. and 4:00 p.m.

“Anything in good condition will be greatly appreciated,” Sharon said.

Following the reopening of the store in 2020 after confinement, a back garden has been created.

The rear garden is open on Saturdays from 10:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.
