Gift Guide: Melbourne Design Market

The Melbourne Design Market is coming up on 12-14 July at the Royal Exhibition Building, and we’re thrilled to give you a sneak peek at some of the amazing new products you’ll find. Whether you’re shopping for yourself or to surprise a friend or family member with a special gift, The Finders Keepers Market is the place to discover and support the very best from independent makers and small businesses in Australia. We already have our wishlists ready and can’t wait to get our hands on these items!

Boundless Convertible Pants by Atas Awan 🏔️

If we had a team uniform, it would include Atas Awan’s Boundless Convertible Pants. We love functional fashion, especially when it’s mindfully made by a small Aussie creative business! We can see these pants taking us from market set up to a delicious post-market dinner on Gertrude Street and then back home to our favourite trails. Durable, comfortable and thoughtfully designed: Huge tick of approval from team FK! ✅

Lines in the Sand Ring by Coral Covey 🌿

The Lines in the Sand Ring by Coral Covey has caught our eye us with its flowing silver lines that elegantly wrap and intertwine around the finger. Designer Laura Deakin meticulously handcrafts each piece from 100% reclaimed and recycled sterling silver, embodying the true spirit of ‘handmade.’ This ring is a delightful addition to Laura’s collection, which also includes earrings, pendants, bangles, and cufflinks.

Mug & Saucer Set by Staceys Ceramics ☕️

Imagine this: A Staceys Ceramics Mug & Saucer Set, filled with a fresh brew of by Love Tea’s Honey Spiced Chai, with a few pieces of Noia Chocolate on the side. Sounds like the perfect treat after a big day at The Finders Keepers Market. We’re big fans of Stacey’s ceramic creations, featuring the loveliest glazed airbrush stripey finish. Keep your eyes out at The Royal Exhibition Building for these ones!

Finger Lime & Jalapeno Hot Sauce by Thousand Apologies 🌶️

We love hot sauce and debut brands, so we were really excited to welcome Thousand Apologies to the lineup for the first time! This locally made hot sauce brand is less than a year old and packed with yummy flavours, native Australian ingredients, and local produce. Our pick for a spicy gift is the Finger Lime and Jalapeno Hot Sauce. Yum!

3 Minute Portrait by Eleonora Arosio ✏️

At the top of our market wishlist is a 3-minute portrait by Italian illustrator Eleonora Arosio. For only $30 per person, she’ll draw you as one of her characters, so make sure to wear your cutest outfit! Spots are limited, so visit her stall to get on the list, and snag your very own one-of-a-kind portrait!
