Handmade arts & crafts and live music under one roof
The final Melbourne Finders Keepers Market for the year is held once again at the Royal Exhibition Building in Carlton Gardens over two exciting days.

The relocation from the previous warehouse in Docklands to the beautiful World Heritage listed building will provide extra space for more stalls and exposure to new emerging designers.

The Finder Keepers organisers have also arranged for some amazing live music which is free for all attendees to enjoy. The schedule includes:

Friday 19th October:
6.45pm: The Tiger and Me
8pm: Judge Pino and The Ruling Motions
9.15pm: Jemma and the Wise Ambitious Men

Saturday 20th October:
10am-12pm: Niko Maersk (and between sets too)
12pm: Baby Drivers
1pm: The Townhouses
2.15pm: Fox Sui
3.30pm: Flash Forest

With additional stallholders on display, you will lose track of time browsing through all the unique handmade arts and crafts. A list of designers expected over the two days can be found here.

A lot of the designers do not have a physical store and only sell their products online. Being able to touch and examine the items more closely before purchasing online is a smarter shopping choice. What you see is what you get. It is a good event to start stocking up on birthday and small kris kringle gifts for Christmas.

It is important to note that most stalls will be trading on a cash-only basis. Some may have portable EFTPOS machines but it is safer to bring along more cash. There will be no ATMs inside the Royal Exhibition Building.

Parking is limited however the location is easily accessible by tram or a short walk from Parliament station.

Tram 86 or 96 to Museum stop, corner of Nicholson and Gertrude Streets. City Circle Tram to corner of Victoria and Nicholson Streets.
