“I find Cheeki Monkeys very supportive and always respond to my emails promptly and answer all my questions. The team is very friendly and approachable. I also find the manual very helpful, easy to understand and follow. Facebook groups are the most important place to promote my events and the information about this in the manual is great. The forum is very helpful and really makes me feel part of something.  It is helpful to hear about others experiences from those who are in the same boat and it is great to hear people's success stories, I find this very encouraging. I really enjoy working with Cheeki Monkeys!”

"Cheeki Monkeys Nearly New Baby Sales are dedicated to children's items, so I know that people are looking to buy good condition children's articles. The people who run Cheeki Monkeys are brilliant. I went along to one in Derby and could see that the whole day had really been thought about. It wasn't just stalls, there was entertainment for the children, including a DJ and face-painting making a lovely day out for families."

“The Cheeki Monkeys team are great! Excellent company to work with, they are on hand for the other Event Organisers across the country and always available to provide information and help as best as they can. The manual helps to grow your business and talking and asking questions within the Event Organisers Forum is a great way of discussing ideas and asking questions that you are unsure of. We are at the end of the day trying to run a business and want it to be successful for everyone, so bantering ideas over is a great way of resourcing your own needs.”

"The Event Organisers Manual has everything you need to get you started and is easy to refer to if needed thought your CM journey. Gemma and Craig are extremely helpful and always on hand to answer any queries that we may have, they have also been at the end of the phone on Sunday's when we have needed assistance at events in progress. The Cheeki Monkeys Event Organisers Forum is brilliant, especially for newbies. Any questions you have, just pop a post on the Forum and you will receive loads of friendly help from other EO's. It is very informative to find out about others events and experiences and provides motivation and support when you need it x"

“The Manual helps immensely with setting up Facebook and Twitter accounts, it is great with information and very thorough. Cheeki Monkeys are always available when you need them, answer all sorts of questions and deal with awkward situations as well. They take care of the payments and set up a database for stall bookings. The Forum is very helpful! Lots of ideas, support and tips, I use it more than the manual.”

Events are ideal for a family day out as you can find everthing in one place, face painting, craft, bouncy castles, clothes and baby stuff for sale, cakes, cupcakes and more. I do face painting at Cheeki Monkeys Westminster and I am proud to be a part of it!"

"It was well organised with plenty for the kids to do like face painting, and some activities like make a mask and a stall giving out goody bags, there was a kiddy disco which was fun and a photographer. It was nice to go to something where there was plenty going on for the kids too. The stalls themselves were good, mostly parents selling their second hand bits and I came away with a few bargains, it was good quality stuff. With it being the first one I don’t think it was as busy as it could have been but I’d certainly go again and the kids had a great time!"

"The Cheeki Monkeys Manual is very extensive and includes all the information you will need. You need to read it thoroughly, but everything you need to know is in there. If you can't find the answer (even though 99% of the time it will be in there), the forum is fantastic, everyone is friendly, helpful and usually willing and able to answer anything however trivial. The Cheeki Monkeys team are great, I suspect they are snowed under but respond to our queries quickly and sometimes work well into the night! They provide unlimited support at virtually any time."

"Thank you Cheeki Monkeys for two great events in Totton and Winchesterover the last couple of weeks! Considering they were your first markets in these areas, I was very happy with the amount of money I took as a pre-loved stall holder (almost £300 over the two events!). Keep up the good work! Looking forward to the Romsey event on 2nd April. Do you have any more events booked in Totton or Romsey yet? Keen to get the dates in my diary! Let me know if there is anything I can do to help with advertising xx"

“I really enjoy Event Organising with Cheeki Monkeys, I find the Cheeki Monkeys team extremely helpful, nothing is ever too much trouble and they are always there if ever there are questions to be answered or problems to be solved. When I first looked at the manual I thought wow what a lot to take in, but having now read it a few times (it is now my bible) it's very, very helpful and although I don't post on the Event Organisers Forum very often myself, those that do 9/10 seem to ask the questions that need to be answered, so to me the forum is very helpful and it's also good to see how everyone else's markets are going.”

"This market by cheeki monkeys was great on Saturday and more to come... There was a lot of great items to buy and the cakes and coffee went down well too. We really enjoyed doing a disco/music for the little ones. We are looking forward to the next event soon and highly recommend for anyone who has small babies and children to come and look what's on offer or for sale. There was some great information and craft items and i brought a gift for my child while there. with face painting and the photo shoot there's so much going on. This is a new event in our area but worth a visit. Dont miss a bargain item or the next Cheeki Monkeys Derby event!"

"We went to Cheeki Monkey's first event in Derby as we heard about it through a friend. It was a very well organised event and they communicated well with everyone who was there. There were lots of different things to buy and activities to do like craft activities - it wasn't like a car-boot sale! We went to the mobile disco, bought a few things and all enjoyed ourselves while we were there."

I would recommend these events to both buyers and sellers. Don't miss out x"

I was impressed at the amount of marketing that was done for it and we would like to do another one. The price was really reasonable and it was great that the tables and chairs were provided. I’ll be in touch about booking the Whitchurch event soon, thanks again!"

"The lady that organises Cheeki Monkeys events in Westminster is so lovely and friendly, she's organised and looks after you throughout the event. I had a fantastic time selling and met great people. And these events are 3 hours as most others are 2 hours so worth the money."

"The manual is amazing and it is proof of many thorough hours of work put into it! A reference book that is basically timeless and invaluable. Both Craig and Gemma are very, very supportive and lovely people too. The Cheeki Monkeys secret forum on Facebook is also a fantastic way to bounce off ideas with other Event Organisers.  It allows you to share your thoughts, feelings, emotions, and most of all learn and educate every day. My favourite thing is to call up businesses and announce my name and the words "Cheeki Monkeys" - it is a real ice breaker as it always leads to a positive conversation with a smile. To put in the hours leading up to an event and to then see it all unfold it a pleasure, and promotes feelings of accomplishment and job satisfaction."

"My Mar 2016 event went very well considering it was my second market and such a huge event and my first in Romford. I had approximately 500 adults through the door and sold 176 wristbands for the entertainment. Sold out of walking animal balloons in 30 mins and there was a massive queue to get in. The kids loved the Easter bunny and the cafe took over £250. All in all I took nearly £2000."

It's an amazing feeling knowing you've built your business all by yourself and seeing it take off is fantastic. My events this year are filling up nicely which is great."

“I have found the Marketing and Operations Manual to be extremely helpful in organising my first market. In the lead up to my first event I was constantly referring to it and found that it contained clear instructions and everything I needed to know with regards to the planning of the event. When I have further questions these are always answered very quickly via email and I received great support for my first event. The Facebook forum has been really useful to get advice and further support. By following the manual and with the additional support I received, I was able to plan a successful and profitable first event.”
