Finders Keepers Melbourne/To AW Markets 2022

Discover First Nations artists, designers and makers – and shop for their wares – at Australia’s largest design market. There will be more than 200 exhibitors, including a spotlight on indigenous businesses.

The Finders Keepers Market returns to the Royal Exhibition Building for the first time since October 2019. It falls during Naidoc Week, when celebrations are held across Australia to celebrate and recognize the history, culture and achievements of the Aboriginal and peoples of the Torres Strait Islands and the market follows.

This year, Australia’s leading design market welcomes First Nations artists, designers and creators as part of its Indigenous program expansion. Twenty Aboriginal makers and creative small business owners from Victoria will receive a fully funded maternity space during the three-day event.

It’ll be hard to see past the bright color palette of Melbourne DJ Soju Gang’s handmade streetwear label Sawft and the quirky jewelery designs of Haus of Dizzy. Also keep an eye out for Clothing the Gaps, fashion label Magpie Goose, gin connoisseurs Taka Gin Co and Gammin Threads.

Also on this market’s lineup: chunky knit packs from Cardigang, botanical prints from Chimerical Homewares, gorgeous reusable takeaway cups from Lucy Jane Ceramics, wheel-thrown pieces from Tiny Pots Melbourne and much more – there are over 200 stalls to browse .

There will be pop-up food stalls so you don’t have to shop on an empty stomach, and drinks courtesy of Brookie’s Gin, Minimum Wines and Moon Dog.

Tickets can be purchased at the door or online for $5 each and children under 12 are free. The full lineup of suppliers can be found here.

Fri 4pm-9pm
Sat & Sun 10am – 5pm
