My sticker that gave me entry into the markets
With surprisingly good weather last weekend, I spent my Saturday afternoon at the Brisbane Finders Keepers markets seeing all of the wonderfully crafted creations by amazingly talented people. As always, the markets not only had stalls but also some tasty food delicacies and local musicians playing outside in the gardens. I stupidly forgot to take more cash with me but I still managed to bring back quite a haul!
previous times I’ve gone, a gold coin donation was required for entry into the markets, not that I’m complaining (totally worth it). Inside was bustling as always and there were so many stalls I wanted to buy from, especially those that had cool and quirky cards. Some of my new favourites were hello lemon, Hannakin, Hungry Designs, Each to Own, Beau Wylie Illustration, Team Kitten, Rabbit & the Duck and Lauren Carney Art. It was also good to see Bespoke Letterpress, Sharon Muir, Ella Mobbs and Beneath The Sun back again ^_^.
Visit the Finders Keepers website to see when the next markets are coming up near you. You can also find a list of all the stallholders from the Brisbane one. Looking forward to hopefully going again later this year!
And now – photos from the day ^_^.

Love the brick work on the Old Museum
My Bespoke Letterpress haul! I had literally just run out of my last lot the day before the markets. I also got some new twine for wrapping as well
One of the reasons I love Bespoke Letterpress gift wrap so much – it’s double sided 😀
