Finders Keepers Sydney

Yesterday, I boarded a plane with Renee (@thehappyorganicgirlau) to Sydney. Why? To check out the Finders Keepers market held at Barangaroo. You may recall, a few weeks back I visited the Finders Keepers in Brisbane also. I think it's always nice to check out the market myself before I apply for the future markets .I believe only only myself can tell whether I fit in the event. It's a lot of investment to go interstate markets, we'll have to pay for the stall fees, the logistics, and get people to look after the shop at South Melbourne, etc etc. Lots of factors need to consider and that's why I prefer to personally visit all these markets to see whether it's worth it or not.

Anyway.

Our morning started with a quick coffee and croissant at Brunetti's before boarding.Our flight was packed however we were both so excited for Sydney we chatted and laughed the whole way and before we knew it, we had landed.

The weather was cloudy yet still warm. We decided to stop at Circular Quay first and walk up to The Rocks to check out the markets. Stopping to admire the Opera House and Harbour Bridge, it's amazing how much you miss seeing them now we are both located in Melbourne.

Arriving at Finders Keepers in Barangaroo was quite surreal. Its been transformed completely.

Many people were waiting for the doors to open at 10am!

The feel is very different to Melbourne or Brisbane. It's nice to see that each market has their own vibe. The space at Barangaroo is incredible, located in The Cutaway,the ceiling is high with a beautiful natural backdrop of stone to one side. 

We loved the vibe at the Finders Keepers Sydney, and cross our fingers and toes that we will be accepted next year to bring our happy and colourful designs to Sydney siders!

Finders Keepers Brisbane

Finders Keepers Brisbane

Hello Brisbane!
Well as you know, yesterday morning I boarded a plane bound for Brisbane. This is an exciting trip for me because not only is this my first time travelling to Brisbane alone, I also checked out the most famous Finders Keepers market!
It’s interesting how Finders Keepers differ from state to state. When I arrived at the Brisbane Show Grounds, I immediately felt relaxed and the easy going Australian spirit was evident at the market. Everyone is here to have a great day.
Needless to say, all the stalls were amazing. I saw some familiar faces from Finders Keepers Melbourne but the number of amazing stalls here at Brisbane is crazy!

I arrived at 10am and the market was already so crowded - to the point I couldn’t even take any photos! To those of you who aren’t aware, I am only 5ft, so technically there were lots of people but really all I could see were people’s bums. 😭
So you ask me, why was I at Finders Keepers Brisbane for just a few short hours? Am I that crazy? I came to the Market to see if we should apply for next year’s Brisbane market. Since we don’t have any family and friends in Brisbane, it’s a lot to ask to come all the way here.
When exhibiting at a big market like this, there is a lot more involved than packing some suitcases. We need to plan the logistics, accomodation, stock levels, our time and most importantly MONEY.
The good news is, we will be giving this a go for next year and aim to be accepted. Wish us luck, fingers crossed!
