the finders keepers markets

One date I always look forward to on the calendar is the Finders Keepers markets. With so many great stalls in the one place, it’s hard to narrow down what to actually buy. After doing a few rounds of the markets and finally making a few purchases (stay tuned to see what I picked up!), my friends and I headed to the lawn outside for some lunch, live music, and chats. It was such a lovely way to spend a Sunday afternoon and we even managed to score a shady spot under a big umbrella. It’ll be a fair while until these markets roll into Brisbane again but if you’re in Sydney, make sure to pay a visit when they hit in December.

  11. Were you there around 3pm?? My boyfriend's band played, they are called We the Ghosts πŸ™‚

    I am always tempted to buy many things too, but I did not have any money. I will need to save up some for next time.

    @Jo: they were! well the ones I had anyway, they were shared between us all πŸ™‚

    @Hannah: you will loooove it.

    @alexis: yes yes, it definitely needs to roll out around Aus (not sure how the logistics of that would work though)

    @Nicole: thanks:

    @Hannah: I was actually! We were under an umbrella close to the food stalls. I was on a budget so had to limit myself to one item – would've loved to have bought EVERYTHING though ahah

    Argh this whole time I have thought you were from Sydney.

    Oh I feel sad now!

  15. soph (owl vs. dove) November 7, 2011

    @Nicole: almost – the purple and green ones are letting the team down a bit haha

    @herecomesthesun: oh bummer! Definitely a missed opportunity.

  16. re: Yay so glad you got to see them.. they are so much better with their bassist and drummer though.
