Finders Keepers Markets May 09

It's a little late, but here are a few pictures of what I did last weekend.  Saturday I went to the Finders Keepers Markets at Carriageworks in Sydney.  They weren't too bad - a little smaller and more exclusive than I expected, also just a bit too crowded into one end of the building I felt, and as expected, heaps of people!  But otherwise, great fun.

Below are a few pictures of my loot - I bought a sampler pack of fabric from a group I did not know about (located in Leichardt) called Publisher Textiles.  They are open to the public on Saturdays and sell their hand printed fabric by the metre.  However, I did have a look at their goodness!!  Rather expensive!  Not sure I'll be able to shop there, even though I'd love to.

My favourite stall was the Frankie magazine stall.  It included a small rack of cute vintage clothes and accessories.   I bought a lovely vintage doily as well as an embroidered apron, that I still can't decide whether to cut it up for a sewing project or keep and wear as is....let me know what you think!


  1. that apron. Cut, cut, cut!

  2. Man I missed the Publisher Textiles stand! Thanks for the link though - will check them out. We may have been shuffling past each other Gret and we didn't even know it!
