09 Mar The Finders Keepers Market
Recently we were lucky enough to get a few moments from the lovely Sarah of the Finders Keepers market right here in Australia, to gain her thoughts about the importance of supporting your local design talent. Here is what she had to say…
We wanted to make it special and unique every time so people wouldn’t get bored with the same things over and over again so we always focus on bringing new talent each time and adding new features that encourage people to be creative and support handmade and their local community.
Why do you think running a market like this is important to our young artists and designers?
Do you have rules of what can be sold at the market? What makes your market different to others out there in terms of what is on offer?
What are your thoughts on the importance of supporting locally made goods instead of imported goods? In your opinion, are there any big economic or environmental benefits to supporting localised trading?
What challenges have you had in setting up the market? Has there been any hardships in educating market applicants/market go-ers about the product quality / price points / product origins that need to be upheld to keep the reputation of the market in-line with your original vision?
What are your hopes for the market in the future?
THE FINDERS KEEPERS MARKET WILL NEXT BE HELD ON THE 26th & 27th OF MARCH IN MELBOURNE. CLICK HERE FOR MORE DETAILS.
