Warming up the reindeer for Finders Keepers next weekend!

We can’t wait for Finders Keepers Market next weekend! We love it!

Being a mainly online based store it’s a definite  treat for us to get out and about and talk with our customers and other designers about current and upcoming trends and to see the fantastic work other local designers are producing! We can only imagine that the carnival atmosphere of Finders Keepers will be extreme as we jettison into the festive season!

Here is some of our work that you’ll be able to find at the markets next weekend!

We’re still all about bright summer colours … we’ve stocked up on our hand drawn favorites;  neons pink, yellow and  orange and we’re bringing along some new Australiana cushion designs too – we’re feeling very patriotic.

Dreamy days by the beach, warm summer breezes, tropical cocktails and Panama hats have inspired a new range of hand dyed, hand painted linen cushions.

wallets

Our farmed kangaroo leather wallets were a favourite last time, and they make a great Christmas gift! In addition to tan, our new range in black is lined with a hand printed Story Bridge detail in neon green or neon red a second leather pocket inside for cards. The soft gold wallets are lined with hand printed antler print linen.

We’ve made a special effort to expand our range of summer weight bamboo, cotton and hand drawn linen quilts to include some fabulous gifts for the little ones, and not so little ones too.

And of course we’ll have our tea towels range including this Christmas set! Perfect for a Christmas hamper or stocking filler.

We’ve got a new and improved spot this time at the market with more room and more stock!

You’ll find us at the beginning in Studio #1, store 205.

Come along to the Old Museum next weekend and say hello!
