Finders Keepers

This weekend I went to the Finders Keepers market with my lovely Laura. It was absolutely fantastic! It was really busy in the morning but we could still look at most of the stalls. I have some pictures that I took but I used one of Laura's fancy SLR cameras so I can't get the photos just yet.
It was great being allowed to take photos of everything. So we looked at stalls, bought things, listened to some live music (we watched Hello Yoko....loved them) while eating German sausages :) and just hanging out. It was such a wonderful day.

Here are photos of my purchases. I would have bought so much more but I had to control myself.

These are just a few of the business cards I collected. I love seeing how creative they make their business cards. And the way they display their items.

I ended up buying the new Frankie magazine at their stall. And I got this tiny badge too. Apparently they were selling toffees too but we missed out on that.

I got this from the Leeloo stall. They are scratchie cards. That little silver charm in the top right hand corner is to reveal a picture.

This sort of shows what picture will be revealed when scratched.

I just loved this card. It's from We Are Messengers. This was the last one and Laura and I both wanted it but she let me get it :) But the lovely ladies from this company gave her a discount to buy one online.

This is from Bespoke Press. I bought my tabletop letterpress from them last year :)

This print is a collaboration between Bespoke and Kristal Melson. I've seen this print before I and I adore it.

I just thought this was sweet. It's hard because I wanted to buy more for me and to give as gifts for friends.

I thought these little fabric earrings were really cute. They are from Brooke Johnston.

These sweet things are from LooseLeaf Paper. Laura and I really loved their items. It was a mixture of fabric and paper, photography and other little bits.

I thought these little heart pillows were sweet. There were these mixed fabric/paper brooches that I wished I bought now.

This little journal has a G stitched into the cover. The had all the letters. And this is what it said inside :) It was definitely one of my favourite shops.

And this is the lot. Oh I really can't wait until the next one in November. It's perfect timing for Christmas gifts.

Have a wonderful week everyone!!

Thank you for your comment dear. I'd love to get a Frankie magazine, but it is your choice if you want to send me, I'm not a beggar, I feel shy begging :) one thing I'm sure I'm definitely jealous about it *ah ah* I saw in the website it is very indie, creative, full of amazing things that was what claimed my attention.

Take your time to write me, through your post I see that you are busy and what happened to your relative.. It's okay.

The same for me about my first swap. I was buying beautiful and funny things but still thinking "is this good enough?" I was thinking that other people could send a lot of better things and I got things i didn't like so much. I could like if they were at least new :/ So I'm more afraid to get into journal swaps, I would love, but I'm pretty sure I'd like what I would get. So I swap lists and letters sometimes, until I make five swaps and then will be me creating swaps :D

Much love,
Joana

Jealous! I had ever plan of going to this, but then I had to go on call for work :( I got a call over the weekend, which means I get paid 4 extra hours this pay ... but still! I would've preferred to go to the markets. Oh well, I'll just have to go next time!

Love the G notebook. How adorable!
