Origin of Cool: Australia
The Finders Keepers market is the dream of every off-beat come to life.
Held bi-annually in Brisbane, Sydney and Melbourne, the Finders Keepers bring over 65 independent designers and artists to the attention of those members of the general public who crave oddity and a bit of all-round quirk.
For those who aren’t as excited over wooden brooches as others, those who tire easily of milling through throngs of people, or those who are just a little bit lazy (no judgement here), there is a large space outside filled with refreshment stalls, sunchairs and make-shift couches. From here, you can watch live performances from up-and-coming local groups and devour macaroons, organic hotdogs, and cups of tea (in more flavours than you can twirl your ironic moustache at) in comfort.
There is even a stand run by The Smoothie Cycle where you have to sit on a bicycle and pedal to make the blender work to make your smoothie! Origin of Cool loves this idea!
Here are a couple of beautiful flyers highlighting the events at the market:
