Time Out says
Head to Barangaroo for the summer edition of this huge biannual design, arts, shopping and food festival
Australia’s longest running indie design and art fair is returning to the Barangaroo Cutaway for three days of refreshing retail in December. A line-up of more than 200 established and up-and-coming stallholders will descend on Barangaroo to show off their handcrafted and meticulously designed goods.
After ten years, Finders Keepers are always looking for ways to spice up the mix of creatives, through design initiatives and fresh experiences. As in previous years, there will be a devoted ‘debut’ section, for designers that are brand new to Finders Keepers. And once again, they’ll be extending hours on the Friday (and till a little later on Saturday), so you can head in early and stay up late hunting for bargains.
You can expect an army of creatives offering fashion, homewares, beauty products, art and fab food. This year's stallholders include nostalgic South Coast design brand Milk Thieves, ethical Aussie fashion company Frank & Dollys, puppy paraphernalia providers Comfy Tails and Australian homewares company Sunday Folk Textiles. Keep an eye out for absolutely adorable chunky jewellery made from clay, firbre and repurposed products by Heidi Helyard, and very schmick ceramics from Marrickville-based potter Public Holiday.
There will also be food trucks, coffee carts, licensed bars and a host of fine snack purveyors dotted throughout the market stalls to keep you fuelled so you can smoosh all your end-of-year Chrissy shopping in one trip. Live musicians will provide a fresh soundtrack across all three days.
Entry is $5 and kids under 12 can join in the fun for free.
