Finders Keepers lovelies

Here's my purchases from the Finders Keepers market. There is always so much I want to get.

I love that they always use brown paper bags.

I got this from the Frankie stand. Their Sweet Treats cook book and some little gift cards. 

I love that vintage wallpaper look. 

This is some artwork by Courtney Brims. She's a Brisbane artist. I do like this dreamy whimsical art. I have a story about her and my necklace which I will leave for another post. 

I got this singlet dress from White Euphoria. Sorry the photo is rubbish. I can never take good pics of clothes. 

It has the prettiest ruffles at the front. The fabric is super soft and I can't wait to wear it. 

This lovely pastel collection is from looseleaf - paper. I love that it's mixed with paper and fabric. That little brown box is a writer's stationery set! Their set up is always beautiful!

I got these pretty porcelain pieces from Udessi. A little Christmas ornament and a tiny bowl. I was thinking of giving that as a gift or for stud earrings. The lovely Anastasia actually bought me a beautiful bowl from Udessi as a house warming gift.

These hardbound journals and little porcelain tag are from Paper Boat Press. I intended these to be as gifts but I want to keep them :)

A close up of the journals. These are just lovely.

I really love these markets and supporting the handmade industry. 

Actually the amazing Jasmine let me know that this Friday night there will be a Twilight Christmas market at the Gallery of Modern Art. There are going to be some of my faves like Bespoke Press, Udessi, Looseleaf-Paper, Paper Boat Press etc. 

Funnily enough Jasmine and I haven't met yet which is funny considering we both live in Brisbane :) But maybe I will catch up with her there!! 

Anyway, have a wonderful rest of week!!

Everything looks so pretty! I collect journals myself so going there would be such a dream! Actually, I am kinda thankful I don't live there, lest I spend all my money buying pretty paper XD

Oh, you bought all the things I wanted but didn't get. I love all of them!

Next time if I see someone who looks like Jason, I will go up and say hi regardless. Maybe we'll bump into each other this Friday!
