So a bit of a (large) gap between this and my last post, but may I draw your attention to my new and improved website, thanks to Tom. Looks much better don’t you think!
Here’s a few photos of the Sydney Finders Keepers market the other week. This year it was massive with loads more space, being held in the Australian Technology Park.
Here are a few of my favourite stalls.
Lovely bright and bold designs from Scoops Design:
Screen printed pineapples and prawns at Everingham & Watson:
Super cute designer of ladylike outfits, Alice Nightingale:
Whimsy Mileu jewellery and accessories:
I battled with myself over this scarf with the houses on it, I may have to pay a visit to the Whimsy Milieu Etsy shop…
Lovely splodgy painterly and fresh designs from Beattie Lanser:
The delightful and charming The Storybook Rabbit:
I have a major crush on The Storybook Rabbit. I must have spent about 45 minutes hanging around this stall last year, looking longingly at the dainty little illustrated plates and brooches. This year I knew I had to get something and bought an adorable little plate with a shy bunny on it.
Last but not least the lovely Martine Booth with her amazing Vintage Prints:
I helped Martine out with her stall for the afternoon, it was great fun!
Here are a couple of Martine’s prints I came away with.
This is from an 1880’s encyclopaedia. I love those coloured flames and test tubes all neatly lined up. If only chemistry at school had been this exciting:
Tiger illustration from a 1960s children’s book by Brian Wildsmith:
About five minutes before the end I picked up this brilliant 1950s skirt from a vintage stall. It’s very full and made of wool, and I love the design of carousels – it’s very Festival of Britain somehow:
That’s it! It was a grand day out. Looking forward to next year!
