The Finders Keepers is back IRL baby.
If you’ve come to a Finders Keepers event before, we might look a little different to the way you remember. Please use this guide to help manage your expectations and see how we’re streamlining our entire events process in a COVID Safe era.
We want everyone to stay safe, so we’re playing it safe with the introduction of these new things:
It is a Queensland Government and venue requirement that masks or face coverings must be worn at all times when inside the venue.
Due to new restrictions, we will have limited general seating and lounge areas available to ensure our resources are adequately creating COVID Safe environments. We will still have adequate cafe seating near our food and beverage vendors as visitors are required to sit when eating or drinking.
In line with becoming a cashless event, and the obligation to adhere to a new capacity, visitors must book and prepay to attend The Finders Keepers Markets Brisbane.
Not only does this support the elimination of cash handling it also enables us to adhere to new protocols around social distancing with the ability to have allocated ticketing. Each $5 ticket is an allocated time slot to shop!
Tickets will be sold via Eventbrite and we will not be selling tickets at the door. If there is capacity within the time slot, we will ask visitors who come to the door to purchase online via their smartphone. All visitors will be given a wristband upon entry, colour-coded for their time slot.
Make sure you bring all your debit, credit cards or digital payments devices, as Stallholders will need to abide by cashless event rules too. As we pay more attention to hand hygiene and the surfaces we all touch on a daily basis, the Finders Keepers is eliminating cash handling in 2021.
The October 2021 Brisbane event hours:
As part of our COVID Safe plan, the Finders Keepers are no longer able to provide communal change rooms. Individual stores may have singular change rooms in their stalls. Perhaps think about your outfit if you are planning on trying things on.
The Finders Keepers are excited to be back in Brisbane. When visiting our event please be mindful that due to new restrictions we will no longer have general seating and lounge areas available to ensure our resources are adequately creating COVID Safe environments. We will still have cafe seating near our food and beverage vendors.
There will be COVID Safe informational signage as well as hand sanitising stations around the venue in accordance with health departments. There will also be multiple information hubs throughout the venue for both stallholders and visitors.
This event will be conducted in accordance with QLD Health direction and our comprehensive approved COVID Safe Management Plan. Any necessary updates will be provided via our website here and direct communication with ticket purchasers. Vulnerable persons should talk to their doctor about what is appropriate for them.
The wellbeing of our visitors, our stallholders and our staff remains one of The Finders Keepers priorities. We have put in place comprehensive measures to comply with Government guidelines and current public health advice. You may notice some big changes this year when booking, attending and interacting with our events. Please read the information on this page carefully and feel free to CONTACT us at any time with any questions. It is a condition of entry for all patrons that they agree to follow our COVID Safe protocols.
