The best handmade and designer goods in Australia
Twice a year, the national The Finders Keepers Markets make their way through Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane. This top notch event finds the best handmade artisans and indie designers and hosts them all under the roof of The Old Museum.

With fantastic Brisbane artisans Each to Own, Zillpa and Bravo Juliet Designs among the 85 stallholders, you know that the rest of the line up is going to be amazing. My last trip to this market saw me coming home with bags and bags of beautiful gifts from sellers all over the country to give for birthday presents all year. If you're wanting to visit somewhere which has fantastic range and a whole raft of interesting and unique wares, this is the perfect spot.

While you're there, head out onto the lawn where there are fun food trucks and ample grassy seating under the big old tree. Live music pays out here and you can sit and relax before heading back inside for another shopping haul. The coffee van is always a hit as you will definitely need your energy to get through all three halls of amazing wares.

This market only comes around at the crossover of Autumn/Winter and Spring/Summer so there's only a few opportunities a year to visit and shop. I highly recommend getting there early on the Saturday as some sellers have been known to sell out over the weekend.

Definitely plan to head in there for at least half a day as you'll want to take your time and browse each space. I find that most people are very polite at this event and while the halls are sometimes heaving with people, they don't jostle and instead use their manners to weave through the crowds.
