The Finders Keepers market currently promotes and supports over 1200 sellers each year. It’s more of a festival than a market with events combining design, art, good food, live music and a fun community spirit under one awesome roof.

Attracting tens of thousands of visitors to each event, the markets provide a retail shopping event to the general public like no other.  With something for everyone, our events cater to shoppers mindful of conscious consumerism, and those seeking to actively support small, local businesses.
Finders Keepers are on the cusp of expanding their curated marketplace to include an online marketplace. This means our customers, sellers, buyers and visitors will drastically increase. 

We know that to move our organisation forward into the next decade we need to grow our team. We need a person who can take direction and work closely with our current Community and Customer Support team to make this role their own and grow with our nimble fast paced company.
