The Finders Keepers Markets is a bi-annual events that showcases the work of emerging artists and designers from around Australia and New Zealand.
I’ve always been a huge fan of the bi-annual event and have had the dates clearly marked, highlighted and asterixed in my diary as a must attend event. The Sydney markets are held at CarriageWorks and a great way to take a peek at some of the amazing work and trends coming out of Australia.
By pure coincidence I was delighted to discover that the Melbourne Market was on whilst I indulged in a long weekend in Melbourne recently. Located in the sheds at Dockylands, the Melbourne Finders Keepers Markets did not fail to impress. I was able to see some of the new ranges of some now familar designers and a whole lot of fresh new artist and designers. With the Autumn chill in the air, I particularly fell in love tightology, a collection of funky legware that is 100% Australian made using organic cotton, bamboo and wool.
If you get a chance the next Sydney event is on Friday 20th and Saturday 21st of May, there’s free entry and live music, food and a bar open all day.
