Finders Keepers, Losers Weepers.

This Friday, Saturday and Sunday the Melbourne Finders Keepers market is on at the Royal Exhibition Building in Carlton.

Jessincase you can’t make it  to the market yourself, I’ve done you a solid and trawled the interwebz to present to you my top vendor picks and their wares, so you can shop from the comfort of your own home.
However, staying home means you miss out on the food trucks…just sayin’.
(Seriously, there’s even a creme brulee cart…)

Bok Bok B’Gerk

Come on, the cat in glasses brooch alone is enough to make you crack a grin.
Although it iiiis hard not to chuckle at saying “Bok Bok B’Gerk” out loud.
* Does best chicken impersonation*



Plant by Packwood

Melbourne based terrarium makers PLANT by Packwood create artisan landscapes for city people who need somewhere small to retreat to, but I think they’d look pretty good in a country person’s home too.

They make pet themed plushie dolls, as well as cushions and brooches.



Nest Accessories


A clock for when you donut know what the time is…
Nest Accessories also do laser cut nursery mobiles, wall clocks, mirrors,wall stickers and art prints.



Able and Game

I’ve been a fan of these guys for a few years.
Well worth stocking up on, their selection of cards basically cover every situation you may ever need a card for, and they also make some pretty funky tea-towels.



Alchemy Produx

All of their candles are 100% natural soy wax and come in these neat beaker containers, which vary in shape and size.





I know what you’re thinking.
“Jess, it’s a delicious Killer Python. What does that have to do with market shopping?”
Oh nothing…Except it’s not just a Killer Python. ITS A BLOODY BANGLE!
For real.



Swanky Socks

Happy browsing friends, and maybe see you at the market!
I’ll be the one stuffing my face, trying to carry 45 bags and telling my partner why it’s necessary to re-mortgage the house…
