Girl sells out of cookies in minutes after choosing clever sales spot

It took her only 45 minutes to sell out of her stock of munchies, collecting $120 for the Girl Guides in the process.

Nine-year-old Elina Childs brought a wagon full of Girl Guide cookies to offer the crowd outside a new cannabis shop in Edmonton, Alberta.

She sold the cookies on the same day that Canada legalized marijuana nationally.

According to an article on cbc.ca, Elina Childs has cystic fibrosis and can't be around people who are smoking, but Seann Childs said it was a good educational opportunity for Elina to learn more about marijuana.

Elina Childs, who is part of the Girl Guides of Canada Brownies program, told CTV News that it was her father's idea to sell cookies to customers outside a marijuana shop in Edmonton, Canada, on Wednesday. But Childs said his daughter has previously sold cookies door to door in their neighbourhood.

Thirty seconds of six minutes' stoppage time remained and for Manchester United fans the day out could not have seemed better. The result is really unfair for us. "The game is going to be very hard, we're playing away".

"It amazed me how quickly they went", said the Girl Guide's father. Even cars were stopping on the street to buy her cookies.

She and her dad Seann went down after she finished school, and walked up and down the queue selling the biscuits for $5 (£3) a box. "Just to show her people of all ages and all walks of life are doing this and it's legal in Canada now, just demystify it for her so it's not a big deal for her".

"It was well received", said Childs.

"Everybody we met was incredibly friendly, it was a great atmosphere and there was not a single thing going on in that line that I saw that I would just say, 'Oh, my god, I need to shield your eyes from this, ' " he said.

She's also not the first little girl to decide to benefit from selling cookies outside a pot dispensary. "She can go and be happy that she'd done that and help support the Guides too".
