PINS, pens and daffodils were selling fast yesterday at the Cancer Council Daffodil Day stall in Launceston's Brisbane Street Mall.

The stall was close to selling out yesterday afternoon, with just a few keyrings and teddy bears remaining for sale.

Volunteer Michael Walsh said every sale added up for the Cancer Council.

"It's quite amazing really, so much has gone out the door," Mr Walsh said.

"People stop constantly which is lovely.

"The popular items are the little pins and the pens, and the flowers.

"It's just nice that random people stop, and a lot of young people have stopped and supported us, which is really nice."

Mr Walsh and his sales partner Jess Christmas were part of the Woolcock Partners real estate team that had volunteers at the stall at different times during the past couple of days.

"It's all about businesses and community doing the work, rather than individuals," he said.

"It's very easy to give a bit of time for a cause like this.

"Everyone knows someone who's had cancer. It's something that's very easy to be a part of."
