$5 of 50c
$20 of $1s
$20 of $2s
$50 of $5s
$50 of $10's
a few $20's for bastards that hit you with $50 notes straight up.
This is assuming you're selling a bunch of stuff at $5 and under as well as bigger items.

That's awesome, thanks Mira! :) Yeah, we've got odds and ends that are selling for smaller coinage; as well as the big stuff.

No worries, I've got to do up floats every Friday night for different priced gig entry-fees. :-)

You could do with more 10's and 20's but as long as a few people pay with them to start you should be fine.

And it's a good idea to price things to minimise the change you need to give - so with little stuff 4 for $10 is easier than pricing things so that they'll end up needing to pay you $10.80 or whatever. Two for 50c rather than 20c. And have learnt from doing markets people will always always hit you with $50 notes first thing!

Well we made a decent amount of money from the sale today, so we're pretty happy! :D


I still have a few big things for sale (furniture mainly); so please message me if you'd like to know more. It's all negotiable, it just has to be picked up by Tuesday in North East Brisbane.
