While the hugely popular The Finders Keepers markets can’t go ahead as usual due to the social distancing measures in place, we won’t miss out entirely! Make yourself comfy on the couch this weekend when the event goes online, and with more than just shopping!
“Just like you can’t replace a real-life hug with a zoom chat, our coming together at events is something too hard to beat. This hasn’t stopped us from creating something equally as special,” says a spokesman. “Finders Keepers at Home is your weekend to connect with artists, designers, makers and memorable experiences. Our IRL events are all about creativity, community and connecting, and while we won’t be seeing faces in the flesh, the basis of Finders Keepers at Home will remain. It will still hinge on creativity, community and connecting (in new ways)!”
Having an online marketplace already in motion, meant The Finders Keepers could quickly offer brands and small businesses ways of making sales. In addition, they’ve worked alongside their stallholders of the three postponed events (May, June and July 2020) to create even deeper ways for them to connect with the community.
Over three huge days (this coming Friday, Saturday and Sunday), Finders Keepers at Home will be a host of creativity.
Shop small and support local and visit the markets online! Cruise virtual market aisles and snap up special event weekend only specials. Look out for crowd favourite ceramists Bonnie Hislop gifting a freebie with each purchase, and Daisy Cooper Ceramics offering Australia wide free shipping!

Watch your favourite makers and seek out some spicy new content. They’ll program content from behind the scenes, studio demonstrations, a day in the life of designers, as well as some how-to tutorials. Dozens of makers have been curated from hundreds of submissions. They’ll include behind the scenes with Eggpicnic, a participatory nature adventure with ceramicist Bridget Bodenham, and Musings from the Moon will demonstrate her beautiful water colouring skills, producing a piece from start to finish AND uniquely for sale over the Finders Keepers at Home weekend. Fashion gun Bilboa will revamp a piece from your wardrobe, young star Oddish walks you through a guide to ‘Unboring Your Laundry’, while Brookies Gin will give you a live cocktail lesson and special recipe to download!
