Australia's longest running indie design markets return to Melbourne
If you go to just one design market this year make sure it’s Finders Keepers. They’ve been touring the market circuit for ten years now and have grown from a tiny 20 stall operation into a three day art and design paradise with record breaking attendance.
Their October 20-22 markets are shaping up to be as strong as ever with a hefty line-up of independent creatives. For those looking to redecorate their humble abode Huddle & Co will be selling their minimalist, Scandi-chic furniture which you can complement with some art by Claire Ishino and Dana Kinter.
Upgrade your hands with pretty, understated nailpolishes from Miss Frankie or treat your whole body to some organic, Tanzanian-inspired skincare courtesy of Nzuri Organics. Men there’s something for you too with newcomers Ministry of Shave and hosiery kings Soxy Beast.
The edible offerings at the Finders Keepers Market are always a big drawcard. Sweet tooths should just head directly to the new dedicated dessert bar run by St Gerry’s, but there’s also sandwich masters Toasta, Vietnamese street foodies Nem N’ Nem and the carb-loaded goodness of Pasta Face. Thirsty? Drop into the new-look Finders Keepers bar, and pick up refreshments by Stone and Wood, Cake Wines and Capi.
This time around Finders Keepers are extending their opening hours so that you’ve more time to shop. The markets open from 5-10pm Friday October 20 (late night shopping anyone?) and are staying open till 7pm on Saturday as well.
Entry is $2.
