Paper Ivy Stall at The Finders Keepers Autumn Winter Markets 2014

I had a great time at The Finders Keepers art and design market this long weekend. It was my first time there as a stall-holder and I was a bit nervous, but there was such a good crowd of people there that I got comfortable pretty quickly.  I met some really nice people, got some great feedback, had some interesting conversations and I hope it’s a the first of many Finders Keepers for Paper Ivy.

Here are some photos of my stall set up and a peek at some of the new designs I made for this market. There are lots! I’ll post some more detailed photos soon.

The shelf I reserved for displaying items: A boxed stationery set, lots of pendants and some walnut and sterling silver earrings.

The Finders Keepers Market – Autumn/Winter 2014

Paper Ivy will be trading at The Finders Keepers Autumn-Winter Market 2014. I’m so excited to be part of Sydney’s biggest art and design market and I would love to see you there!

The Finders Keepers is a great place to find home-wares, gifts, art, design, vintage, fashion, accessories and other beautifully designed objects from emerging and independent designers, that you might have trouble finding anywhere else. This makes it the best place to find gifts, especially for people who have everything! The people on the stalls are usually both the designers and makers and love to talk about what they do, so if you have any questions, ask away. You can also expect a vibrant atmosphere with live music, delicious food and great coffee.

This market event runs on a Friday evening from 6pm – 10pm & Saturday from 10am – 5pm. The markets are a $2 entry fee for all guests – Children under 12 are free!

You can find out more about the markets (transport, music line-up, etc.) here.

Merry Christmas

A big thanks to everyone who went to the last market, especially to anyone who bought things from me and a shout out to my wonderful and talented stall neighbours  Martina from Humble Creations and Rowan from Frank Ideas. Markets are so much better when you have great stall neighbours.

Thank you to all Paper Ivy customers.  Thank you to those who believe in me.  Thank you to the creative community for the support and invaluable tips!

Such a busy time, but the presents are all bought and wrapped, gift tags written and applied to gifts, cards and photos have been sent (a little late!) and tonight (Christmas Eve) will be spent with family.

Next I’m going to put the shop in vacation mode, but I’ll be back in a few days.

Merry Christmas.
