The Finders Keepers in Melbourne this weekend! (Featuring enormous hanging paper installation by The Paper Convention Collective!). Top photo by Dawn Tan.
Raph Rashid’s new Taco Truck made quite an impression! HIGHLY recommend the fish tacos! Top photo by Dawn Tan, bottom photo by me.
Gorgeous pieces by Finders Keepers newbie Emily Green!
Right I will commence my Finders Keepers wrap-up by saying HAVE YOU TRIED ONE OF THE TACO TRUCK TACOS YET!?? Because that was the most overheard sentence all weekend! Well… maybe it was the most overheard sentence if you were standing anywhere near me! They are freaking AMAZING! First burgers and now the best tacos in town?! Sheesh what will he think of next. Mamasita better watch their back! he he. Kidding kidding. (SERIOUSLY though, fish taco – to die for!).
OK enough tummy rumbling from me, and onto the main event! CRAFT! Craft and handmade treats and indie design in all manner of wonderous shapes and sizes. Lots of old favourites (Pene Durston, Betty Jo, Madeleine Stamer, Ink & Spindle!), and some new-ish faces (our favourite newbie – Emily Green!). As usual it was a super high quality curated mix, accompanied by a lineup of great local music and a good sprinkling of paper installation (no indie craft event is complete without one :)
I was having a slightly bad camera day I must admit (bit rusty and a bit jetlagged etc etc), so these aren’t as exhaustive or as pretty as usual… nevertheless it’s a good cross section of goodies! AND I must thank the ever-lovely Dawn Tan - some of these pics are hers… they are waaaaay prettier than mine, so thankyou Dawn you are super kind letting me share them! (Dawn also has much FK goodness on her site today- do pop over and see!).
Highlights below, in no particular order…
