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! :)
...it 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!
