A few weeks ago we had our held our 4th Finders Keepers Markets at CarriageWorks in Sydney. Representing over 90 designers & artists and spanning over the beautiful CarriageWorks foyer and two extra rooms. Featuring designers and artists from all around Australia and a great line up of music from local independent musicians.

Once again we had massive crowds pouring in and buying up a storm. Massive thanks to Michelle McCosker and the team at Reef Knot for their beautiful knitted installations at the markets. Featuring an amazing knitted patchwork backdrop, covered columns and clusters of mushrooms, creatures and wooden tree stumps. Special thanks to all that were involved in making the mushroom clusters and creatures at our weekly working bees.

If you fell in love with the mushrooms – yes we will be selling these at a later date! stay tuned for more details..
