With handcrafted ceramics, giftable jewellery, slow fashion, art prints, local food creators and a bar all under the one roof, it’s the perfect place to explore this spring. Sustainable fashion will be front and centre with more than 30 stallholders selling locally made and designed wares, including Melbourne label Kindling, recycled activewear brand Amble Outdoors, handmade linen pieces by Bilboa and expertly tailored garments by Al Elé.

“We were blown away by Melburnians for our return to the city in July, and we can’t wait to get back this October as we gear up for the gift-giving season,” managing director Sarah Thornton said.

“Our line-up is around 85 percent Melbourne and Victorian-based sellers who have been working hard to recover and show locals what they’ve been working on as they connect face-to-face again.”

Founded in the summer of 2008 by young designers and friends Brooke Johnston and Sarah Thornton, The Finders Keepers Market is a creative and supportive environment for independent designers to sell their work. Since then, they’ve expanded across Australia, hosting markets in Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane.
