Finders Keepers: who's excited?

After weeks (months even!) of crazy preparation the shirts are done, folded and all packed in the car.  Take-out has been consumed in an unhealthy celebration of this fact.  Perhaps a glass of wine or two may have even been partaken.

Because folks, this weekend the excitement that is the Autumn/Winter 2014 Finders Keepers Brisbane Market is upon us.

If you haven't been before, all you need to know is that this is the absolute cream of the crop of independent designers.  If you have been before then you don't need me to tell you how awesome this market, held twice a year, is.

What you need to know:
Saturday 5th and Sunday 6th July.
10am to 4pm.
The Old Museum. Cnr Bowen Bridge Rd & Gregory Tce, Herston.
$2 entry fee.

Apart from lots of Mini Mayhem goodness you will also find some of our favourite designers at this market.  Here is a rundown of some of the ones we'll be making a beeline for.

These guys put the Geo into gor-geo-us!!!

We are always fans of a husband and wife team (like ours) so we just adore the work Luke & Kate produce out of their Sunshine Coast base.

Tackling subjects from famous artists to fabulous fauna and a bit of Star Wars thrown into boot, we could happily line our walls with their entire catalogue.


This deer necklace is such a fave in our house that our little girl plays "peekaboo" with it - "deer", turns necklace "no deer".

This husband and wife team do a great job of pairing sweet designs with gorgeous wood finishes. Not limiting their work to jewellery, Jules and Jon also have some great wall hangings and art prints available as well.


Pretty much five out of seven days in the week you will find a bit of Each to Own adorning my ears or neck.  Even our little miss is building her own collection of these great acrylic pieces - she gets her great taste from her mumma.

But don't just take our word for it.  With an army of thousands of satisfied fans you won't be the only one cutting through the crowds to get their hands on Kirsten's latest amazing ideas.


Don't even start me on the cleverness of this lovely lady who is practically my neighbour in our lovely Bayside Brisbane.

Taking some boring old rope and some fabulous threads she conjures these amazing bowls, planters and bags.  We have at least 302 of these within our home, such is our love for them.  You should get a few for your place too.


Who doesn't love a great handbag? And I'm a big fan of having a bag to match every mood (and believe me, I have PLENTY of different moods).

The gorgeous Belinda from Sybella finds the most amazing fabrics to turn into her amazing one of a kind clutches.  I'd be happy to have at least one of everything she makes!


This resin wrangler first came onto my radar a few years ago with her range of bracelets under the name of Wizz Bangle.

Since that time her work has developed and resin-ated (get it - ha ha!!!) even more with me.

One of my favourite things about her gorgeous vases is that they are practically unbreakable.  I've witnessed this myself on many occasion when she has hurtled them at the floor to prove this very point.

The perfect vase for a little person's bedroom or perhaps just someone as clumsy as me.
