Finders Keepers Sydney - May 2010 (Part 1)

Back in Melbs! Finders Keepers was crazy & amazing, I am still super tired but also excited! First I wanted to show this photo - often there are so many markets on in Melbourne that each individual market is not so busy - Finders Keepers was amazingly packed FULL of people the whole two days! I took this photo during a quiet period - you can see the amazing knitted jungle which is hanging behind the stage - imagine knitting that!

This is most of my stall (more photos on Flickr).

This is our massive spectacular art stall - my section, then Sarah's (Flossy-P), then Emma's (benconservato). You can see Sarah adjusting her display and Emma hiding behind Sarah!

We were next to Frankie Magazine (hooray! I love Frankie!) - on Saturday the amazing, awesome Catherine Campbell came and did some live painting which was so much fun for us to watch - it was also great to see a bit of Catherine's technique too. She is so lovely and we were all so excited to meet each other - hooray!

Emma's beautiful little suitcase full of originals (photo from her Flickr) - I love the floral lining of her suitcase, apparently this used to belong to Emma's grandpa, who had to take it to school! (Did I get that right Em?)

Art wall! I didn't take too much framed art with me due to airplane/suitcase packing issues, but Sarah and Emma both had a lot of beautiful artwork... love it!

I've got more photos to show, but this will do for today!

Wonderful Ms P!
Yes, that is right, my Grandfather was given it as his school bag, and got tons of hell for it... poor kid. It does have a little mirror in it after all.

Another post, another post!
(I'm so demanding aren't I?)

Wow , looks like so much fun.
Sydney just seems to have a better market culture than Melbourne.

Penny said...

My theory is that Sydney has less markets so more people go to them? Is that a valid theory?

Oh Penny, your stall looks just gorgeous! It seems like you had fun - FK was the same last year, so many people it was hard to move!

KKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKRS said...

Lara said...

Oh wow, looks amazing! And like so much fun! Would love to do Finders Keepers one day :)

Lara said...

Oh yeah and I second that Finders Keepers in Melb comment! Looks like exactly what we need here since MDM has become so 'big brand' and has so few indies (although feel very fortunate that they've still wanted I&S!)
