Finders Keepers Brisbane & Sydney AW21 Wrap-Up

Thank you, Brissy & Sydney – what a comeback!

Thank you for joining us again in real life! We can’t tell you how good it feels to be together again. Since April, we’ve been running full steam on the market train visiting Brisbane and Sydney. So in celebration of renewed creative connection, we’re sharing two incredible albums of market moments – plus a shout out to all the superstars who helped make Brisbane beautiful and Sydney so special! We had such an amazing time welcoming new makers, embracing our regulars, and surrounding you with creativity.

You’re the best, Brisbane!
