The Finders Keepers market is the biggest and best travelling indie craft and design market in Australia! Phew! Launched in 2008 and sponsored by such luminaries as Frankie Magazine and online craftopia Leeloo , the market came to Melbourne this weekend. Heaps of great stalls (over 150 designers and makers), tacos courtesy of Taco Truck , bands, an exhibition in partnership with Fashion Week make this event an inspiring standout and heaps ‘o’ fun! Here are some of my favourite things!
