Finders Keepers Brisbane Wrap-Up AW19

Finders Keepers Brisbane AW19 beautifully captured by Samee Lapham

So much small business support – so much SUN!
Thanks Brisbane, you were a dream!

Stop two on our Autumn / Winter tour in Brisbane was a glorious mash-up of sunshine, creativity and coffee! A massive thank you from the Finders Keepers team for three HUGE days. We heard so many amazing stallholder stories throughout  the weekend, from babies being born to hilarious road trips! It was yet another tribute to the incredible support we all share for one another, which we love to watch grow and bloom at every event.

The full album of photos from the weekend is now LIVE. Check them out here! We invite you to tag your stall and your mates! Plus comment, share, like and most importantly ENJOY!

We have a long list of thank you shout-outs, as these events take a village – and what a wonderful village we have! So here goes, Finders Keepers couldn’t do it without you…
