The Finders Keepers was founded in 2008, and has grown from a humble side hustle to hosting major events across the country. We’re now globally recognised as Australia's leading design market, hosting two seasons of events in Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane every year. Our commitment has and always will be to community, conscious shopping, and mindful making.
With a focus on featuring the work of independent makers and designers from across Australia, our total of six annual events support over 1200 unique sellers and are attended by hundreds of thousands of visitors. It’s through these events that we continue to provide thousands of unique opportunities to small business owners all over Australia to make a living out of what they love.
We’ve been described as more of a festival than a market. Our blockbuster weekends combine art, good food, live music and a fun community spirit under one awesome roof in each major city location. Each event offers visitors a unique experience to shop, explore discover and connect with community. With something for everyone, our events continue to promote conscious consumerism, and actively support small, local businesses.
Our markets aren’t all about transactions. We live in a time where connection value is high and social connectivity is more important than ever before. We are a community creator and facilite amazing connections for our community to come together with creators and makers.
