Metchosin’s Kahlil Jones will sell jewelry at the Biz Kids Market

Metchosin youth builds jewelry biz

The Metchosin girl started a small jewelry business for the Biz Kids Market, hosted by home-school students across the Capital Region.

At the tender age of 11, Kahlil Jones hopes to break even in her first business venture.

The Metchosin girl started a small jewelry business for the Biz Kids Market, hosted by home-school students across the Capital Region.

“She needed to make a plan and execute it,” said mom, Heather Jones. “It’s nice to see how dedicated she is.”

After shopping around, Kahlil found it most economical to buy supplies in bulk.  “I spent quite a bit on supplies so I hope to get that money back,” she said.

If she hits the $50 spent on supplies, Kahlil hopes for $30 in profits.

“My dad owns his own business and now I understand more of what he does,” Kahlil said of her fathers 2% Jazz coffee shop. “He told me to figure out how much all the supplies cost and then to set a reasonable price.”

Youth will sell items from home-made cookbooks and crafts to baking and games.

The Biz Kids Market is Friday, Nov. 29 from 2 to 4 p.m. at the Fernwood Community Centre, 1240 Gladstone Ave.
