Mothers sell PNG coloured accessories

BY MARIE SONNY

As Papua New Guinea’s 48th Independence Day looms ahead with 10 more days remaining, the citizens are out preparing for the celebration.

The national flags are hanged in shops and placed on vehicles whilst vendors are out grabbing the opportunity to craft out traditional attires and make PNG coloured accessories to sell.

A couple of sellers were interviewed by the paper.

They said the celebration gives them an opportunity to make ends meet given the demand for the items that they sell will be high in these times leading up to September 16.

“It’s something we are good at doing which is also not hard to make as it takes less time,” they said.

These are passed down skills that we learn overtime so it’s easier for us to turn to these skills to make money our own money.”

These mothers sell along the wall side of Papindo and PC Woo shops in Lae’s Coronation drive that gives off the Independence fever to the people walking by.

They said for big events like the independence celebration, they prepare in advance the items they will be selling and when the month of September arrives, they start selling so that people can buy and wear during Independence Day.

They said such event also gives them the opportunity to make at least some money to save and pay for their children’s school fees or to provide food on the table.
