Event: Finders Keepers Markets 2012

Last week I popped my Finders Keepers Markets cherry. After an array of facebooking, twittering and sms'ing about getting some friends to go with me to the markets, I ended up going alone. I felt kind of sad, lonely and rejected at first, but in the end I preferred it that way because the Markets embraced me with open arms.
I was fascinated by Sustainable Stubbies - whoever thought of recycling old beloved beer and alcohol bottles into cups and jars are geniuses. Of course everyone would love these. I know I did. I bought a Tooheys Extra Dry beer cup straight away for my boyfriend. He LOVES it.
Another lovely find were the OkayBoss iphone covers, all self designed and illustrated. It was hard to get past the customers at their stall but I could see why it was crowded - the covers were just too cute! I couldn't resist and I bought myself a "Moon Moon" character cover.
My first Finders Keepers Markets was a treat, I also enjoyed the cute decorations everywhere (mainly hanging lanterns and fairy lights), live music shows and hot coffee. It was a cold, rainy and dreary day but I was cheered up by all the cute finds. I will definitely visit next year, even if I do attend alone again.

Looks like it was a great little market! Sometimes it's even nicer to go alone because it gives you the opportunity and time to explore everywhere and everything <3

Weren't the markets great? If only we'd gone at the same time! I can guarantee next year you're not going to be alone, because I'll drop everything just for these markets. Thank god they don't happen that often, or I'd end up permanently moving in! x

Uuuugh, jealous! Still can't get over missing them. I need to do some etsy shopping to make myself feel better. I think going alone is still fun! Last time I went with my friends but they just weren't as interested in printed tea towels as I was...
