An Oregon girl says she's come up with a way to raise money for her braces.

But city officials say, without a permit, she's only allowed to beg for the cash she needs.

Here are the ground rules for making money at the Portland Saturday market.

You can put on a show.

You can hold up a sign.

And, of course, you can setup a booth.

You can sell anything you make --- even if it's not clear what it actually does.

The vendors compete and pay for these spaces.

An 11-year-old doesn't know that.

She knows the skid more fountain's a city park open to everyone.
By everyone... I mean... Everyone!

Her smile's why she cut chopped and bagged a hundred bags of mistletoe from her uncle's farm.

She's raising money for braces.

Portland Parks Bureau says -- you still need a license to sell-- but you can always just beg.

Madison says agrees there should be rules about who's allowed to sell.

She thinks there should be an exception for kids.

She knows she's allowed to sell on the sidewalk outside the market.
But that's not where the customers are.
