The event was founded in 2008 and has since been held in Brisbane, Sydney and Melbourne - 10 years on and it’s now grown to become one of the country’s most sought-after markets for designers, artists and fashionistas.
Finders Keepers Brisbane takes place over three unmissable days at the Brisbane Showgrounds and rounds up over 200 stalls selling handmade crafts, homewares, clothes and jewellery. It’s not only a great opportunity for exhibitors to showcase their wares, but for keen market lovers and trend hunters to come along and browse, shop and discover - as well as support - small businesses and unique independent talents from all over the country.
Over 10,000 people attend each event, providing a busy atmosphere as visitors pick up new additions to their home and wardrobe. This 2019, The Finders Keepers is returning bigger than ever to Brisbane along with live music, food vendors, fresh coffee and a beverage bar.
