DEAR DIARY // the finders keepers
by A NOTE FOR ME
The Finders Keepers markets just keep getting better and better every year. They started in 2008 and are now held in Sydney, Brisbane, Melbourne and Adelaide. I went to the opening night in Sydney for the Autumn/Winter event, held in the historical Australian Technology Park in Eveleigh. The spirit behind the markets is to promote and support small, local businesses while endorsing conscious consumerism to the shoppers.
It has created a community that independent artists, makers and designers showcase their amazing pieces at individual stalls. With talent from all over Australia, it’s a great environment to discover talented artisans that you can meet in person. There is always a variety of homewares, fashion, lifestyle and food products to try and buy. It has a creative, festival atmosphere complete with live music, bars and food trucks – a fun day out and a great inspiration!
