The 2nd annual Bulldog Market was a huge success at Wylie High School with customers packed into the cafetorium to look at a variety of items being sold by students.
From the Wylie Ag Department’s metal Wylie signs to the creative writing booth to homemade goodies from the culinary arts classes, the market had a little bit for everyone.
“We sold a lot of Santas and elves,” said Sadie Okerstrom, who was selling ornaments made by the engineering and robotics class using a 3D printer. “We ran out of all our Pokemon ones. We put a lot of work into these.”
Sadie said the market was right up her alley.
“I like it,” she said. “I’ve always been a big salesman.”
Daylon Moore at the Ag Department’s booth said sales were good.
“There have been quite a bit of people,” he said. “They are taking a lot of these Bulldog cutouts.”
Daylon said the ag students made the cutouts with a plasma cutter.
At the creative writing table, students were selling a variety of items with poetry on them, and student Katherine Messer was writing poetry on the spot.
“You can tell her something you want, and she will type it out right then and there,” said Cedar Palfy. “We’ve been busy.”
Cedar said she learned a lot from creating all the products her class was selling at the Market.
“I definitely learned how to manage time and what it takes to be creative and how much work goes into poetry,” she said.
Bulldog Market is sponsored by the Purple Dog Company, which is the high school’s student-run business. Sponsor Reagan Berry said last year’s market had an amazing turnout, and she was wondering if it could happen again.
“I think it’s been even better,” she said. “There is a good steady flow of people, and the teachers and the student just keep delivering.”
