Introducing ‘debut’ & last call for Melbourne Applications!



2013 is bringing lots of exciting changes to our events (and website!!) which we have been busily working on over the last few months. One exciting change for us, is the introduction of our ‘debut’ stallholders, which will give completely new designers & collectives a chance to show their work for the first time at Finders Keepers and a discounted rate. This is a select opportunity, and we are limiting these positions to 12 in Melbourne & Sydney and just 6 in Brisbane. This will mean your stall is highlighted as a debut stall, and you get the opportunity to showcase your work for the very first time with our support.

Since Finders Keepers is growing & our event expenses are too, we have had to increase our stall fees slightly for 2013 (by $35 each). So whilst we made this slight change we have been keeping in mind why we started Finders Keepers in the first place, to support emerging independent design, and it is important to keep introducing excellent new talent in Australia and be able to share our support.

Applications are open NOW for Melbourne Markets, and we wish to invite you all to apply in our very LAST week!!!

We have also introduced a Premium Feature Stall option for more established independent designers, this is a very limited opportunity as well. With only a few feature stalls being selected, this is a prominent position stall with extra marketing benefits. Your stall would have to serve a distinct unique purpose at the Finders Keepers and have excellent visual merchandising and displays to be considered.

GO > GO > GO!!

Please note: If you have already applied for the Melbourne Markets as a first time stallholder, and would like to change your application to be considered for the debut stall option, please email us directly:

    The “debut” idea is fantastic! I think many, if not all designers/crafters/makers that appear at FK have a lot to be thankful for in regards to what FK does for their brand – so on behalf of absolutely everyone, here is a massive high five in your direction!
