Melbourne SS17 Market Wrap


Melbourne!  What an amazing weekend we had at the Royal Exhibition Building, continuing our 10th Anniversary celebrations with you on the 20-22 October.

Our enormous thanks to the tens of thousands of you who walked through the doors and supported all our independent creative businesses at the beautiful Royal Exhibition Building in Carlton.

We have a list that’s a mile long to thank those that helped make the Melbourne SS17 Market happen.

  • A huge thanks to all of our extremely hardworking and talented stallholders. What a huge year it has been for us all. We really appreciate all of the effort and hard yards it takes to prepare for a market of this scale. We hope that you’ve all had a well deserved rest!
  • To the incredible staff of the Royal Exhibition Building; thank you for hosting another Finders Keepers market and for taking care of us all weekend.
  • To all of our Supporters. Your faith in Finders Keepers enables us to grow to new heights each and every event. Above all, it helps us to continue to support our special stallholders even further than we could imagine.
  • Special thanks to our long term partners and fabulous friends at frankie magazine and Capi. Your ongoing support and dedication to our community is hugely appreciated.
  • Thank you to Georgia Mooney for programming and coordinating the perfect mix of bands to entertain the crowds, young and old!
  • Thanks to MOO, Whirlwind and Signwave for helping us with our major printing requirements and to Beaconmaker for their continued support of our beautiful smartphone app!
  • Colossal credit and thanks to the talented Megan McKean from McKean Studio for her city-themed original illustrations that feature on our poster this season. We LOVE IT!
  • Mark Lobo! Your incredible enthusiasm, hard work and oh-so-beautiful photographs are on point again!! Check out the album over on Facebook, and be sure to tag your label or friends!
  • Big ups to Bangin’ Hangin for injecting so much colour and fun into our historic venue with seasonal decorations, and for Dann Event Hire for their complimentary candy coloured couches and seating.
  • Last but never least, the Finders Keepers crew; we quite simply couldn’t do it without each and every one of you.

What a way to kick off the Spring / Summer season!

Next on the calendar, Brisbane! We will be at our brand new venue, Brisbane Showgrounds this 10-12 November. Download the special city-themed artwork by Megan McKean and RSVP on Facebook to help spread the word.
