My sister Anna (right) and I (left) We are still on a high from our first experience selling
at the markets! The Finders Keepers exceeded our expectations in so many ways.
Firstly, the location was excellent, so much space! The Carriageworks (a former railway
carriage and blacksmith workshop) is industrial and modern at the same time, an
inspiring piece of architecture in itself. Secondly, the amount of people in attendance was
staggering. When the doors opened on the Friday night, there was a huge flood of people
and it didn't seem to end. In fact, it got busier and noisier as the night progressed. With
the band playing and bubbly flowing, the vibe was amazing! We had shoppers coming at
us left right and centre. Saturday was a longer trading day and also very busy. We moved
a lot of stock. I was quite flustered for most of the time (and boy, was it HOT inside that
building!). Anna, my very pregnant sister, did an amazing job getting through the long
days. What blew us away the most was our wonderful customers and fellow stallholders.
We met so many lovely customers and inspiring artisans. Everyone was exceptionally
supportive and encouraging! The Ivy Designs' stall was definitely a combined effort. Our
father made some of the props, my best friend helped with the set up and selling, her
husband took the photos, our husbands looked after the babies and we had a whole
bunch of family and friends come as support crew (mostly shopping and drinking really!).
All in all, it was well worth the effort. Not sure if we can get the same kind of help at every
market we do, but this was a good start.

Ps. Thanks for popping in with goodies Kristen! Your dolls were a hit!
