The Finders Keepers markets are back in Sydney, presenting another amazing Autumn/Winter line-up at Eveleigh’s historical Australian Technology Park from April 29 to May 1. Featuring the brightest local and national designers and their unique fare, visitors can expect to find innovative fashion, hand-crafted ceramics, letterpress stationery, bespoke leather goods, hand-poured candles, succulent terrariums and so much more.
For visitors, the most engaging part of buying directly from the designer is absorbing their sense of creative passion through the stories they tell. Shane Thompson, creator of Afternoons With Albert, with a range of handmade leather organisers, is participating in the upcoming Sydney market as a debut stallholder. “Having the chance to step out from behind the label and show people there is a real, authentic and passionate human being behind what they are buying is what I’m looking forward to the most”, says Thompson. “The Finders Keepers also provides me the opportunity to be at the centre of a massive amount of amazingly creative people.”
Visitors can also expect to find their much-loved “Finders Keepers favourites”. Better known for her brightly-coloured homewares label Beneath The Sun, artist Leah Bartholomew is participating in the event to exhibit work created from a recently-renewed fine art practice. “Hands down my favourite thing about the market is meeting everyone who supports my brand, and interacting with fellow designers. It is such a highly professional set-up where we get to showcase our work in beautiful buildings and be surrounded by top quality work. Not only that, it’s a very special and unique event for customers,” says Bartholomew.
