Great people watching was coupled with all sorts of lovely, creative & enterprising craftspeople showcasing their wares.
My faves included Fizzy Lime Creative , where woven geometric patterned lampshades and wall hangings in bright colours and funky patterns looked fabulous in their various shapes & sizes, colours and textures:
Another stall to catch my eye was Milkcart. Designing and restoring furniture and making all pieces themselves by hand in Sydney, Ryan and Marnie of Milkcart have tactile, sophisticated, Scandinavian inspired pieces.
The concrete stool was a fave as were the side tables, the crates and a a gorgeous, cement based lamp. Here's a pic too of Ryan. They haven't heard the last from me!
Sam and his wife Leesa are living the dream. Espousing the virtues of drinking their own home brewed beers and ciders, Leesa has put her graphic design skills to work designing the packaging and Sam's IT background is put to the test with the Hop and Grain website.
Four different styles of beer, that can be ready to drink in as little as 3 weeks, I think these starters kits would make a fab pressie for the fella in your life.
Finders Keepers Markets were held at the Locomotive Workshop at Australian Technology Park. The venue, stallholders, food, wine and music oozed charm and charisma.
Loads more inspo to share, I'll wrap up my other top picks for you very soon.
In the meantime, check out the dates for the Pre-Christmas Finders Keepers Markets. They'll be in Melb, Sydney and Brisbane and come highly recommended for a unique & personalised shopping experience.
