Sydney SS19 captured by Samee Lapham

Wrapping up 2019 at The Cutaway was an absolute treat! Thank you to all the design and art lovers who joined us at this spectacular venue for three huge days celebrating creativity and supporting small + local. As always we’ve put together a facebook album of snaps by Samee Lapham ~ ready to be loved here.

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

  • To our Spring/Summer stallholders, new and returning – thank you for your energy, spirit, and support! You work so hard and slide straight into the silly season! We salute you.
  • To our 2019 partner Xero. What a year it was with you by our side supporting our debut designers. Thank you and bring on 2020!

  • To all of the FK team, volunteers and our full-time family – from packing up the shipping container in Byron to bringing our event to life through minimal sleep and multiple coffees – you all work so hard. GO TEAM.

One last shout-out to all the lovers who hashtagged their adventure #findlovekeep over the weekend! We loved seeing your photos in our feed and look forward to a new decade of finding, loving and keeping with you all!
