Finders Keepers Market Melbourne 2015

Last night on a whim Gary and I went to the Finders Keepers Market at the old Exhibition Buildings in Melbourne.  We got into the city early and had a couple of drinks at a pub across the road and did some people watching, which is always interesting. 
We were there for the opening of the doors, along with a huge lot of other people, I tried to take a few photos before it got too busy ( about 10 minutes later!!).  I love these type of markets, I am always blown away with the amount of creative people having a go at making stuff a career, very cool! 
It was a very high quality market and there were heaps of stalls, lots of little ones and some larger ones that were a bit more spread out.  The stalls looked fantastic, so much effort was put into their set ups, it was very impressive as a whole experience.  I didn't get to really see everything, there was just too much to take in and too many people.   But what I did see was lovely! 

....cute coffee caravan.....

.....I loved the artwork at Nowhere Creek......

....and look, lots of crochet goodness at Habitue Design! :) 

... the exhibition buildings are very spectacular, last time I was here was for the Chocolate Ball of 1991 I think,  quite different circumstances! :) filled up really quickly and there were people everywhere, I saw so many cute things that I could have bought, but Gary was with me and he is trying to be more of a minimalist at the moment, so I felt a bit guilty bringing more 'things' into the house! 

I did manage to buy these cute his and her pillow cases ( and a tea towel) from Nowhere Creek, very practical of me!  
I love them! :) 

It is Grand Final day here for the AFL, it was quite one sided in the first half, Hawthorn have been too good for the Eagles so far, but I hope they make a come back! 
We are off to a 40th tonight, should be a fun night if I can get rid of this Spring cold that has made my head feel like a balloon!  I'm sure a few champagnes will take care of that!  :) 

Have a great weekend! 



  1. quite a few potters go to those markets too... I felt sorry for West Coast, Hawthorn couldn't put a step wrong!

  2. Fabulous! I LOVE craft fairs/markets! Thanks for sharing it. Those terrariums remind me to get on the ball with the one I have planned, for a vintage coffee pot.

  3. Oh my! I wish I could have seen the market too. The coffee caravan is so adorable - I hope the coffee they sold was as good as the look of their shop!

    Take care

  5. How I love this type of market! And what a gorgeous building it was held in.

    Your pillowcases are fantastic -- very good choice indeed!
