WYCKOFF, N.J. – The folks behind Wyckoff’s newest spot to shop for holiday gifts have been hard at work for months.
They have been learning the ins and outs of creating their own products and selling them to the public. And it will all pay off on Thursday when Wyckoff Mayor Kevin Rooney officially opens the TREP$ Marketplace at Eisenhower Middle School.
About 200 middle school students are taking part in the school’s TREP$ program , short for young enTREPreneurS. They have been participating in workshops to learn about entrepreneurship, money, marketing, advertising and sales.
On Thursday, they will be selling their products to the public. Products that will be sold at the market include jewelry, clothing, unusual gifts, baked goods, confections, products for the home, toys, beauty and spa items and candles ranging in price from $2-$20.
The event will begin with a ribbon-cutting ceremony at 5:45 p.m., followed by the marketplace from 6-8 p.m. The event takes place at Eisenhower Middle School, 344 Calvin Court, Wyckoff.
