above THE FINDERS KEEPERS SYDNEY AW23 BY SAMEE LAPHAM
Are you ready for it? The Finders Keepers markets are returning to Sydney this weekend for their final market of the year and we’re feeling green with envy that we can’t be there! But never fear, you’ll still see us popping up all over the place – select stallholders will have our latest issue to gift to some lucky customers, and you can grab a free back issue all around the markets!
Running from 8–10 December, The Hordern Pavilion is the place to be – with air-conditioning pumping, delicious food and cool drinks aplenty and, of course, 170 incredible stallholders that will make all your Christmas-shopping dreams come true!
To help you plan your visit and give you an exclusive look at what’s good, we caught up with a bunch of stunning stallholders who you can shop with and asked them one big question…
What can market-goers expect when they visit you at the markets this weekend?
We will be having a fun photo wall activation at the markets; visitors can come and have a Polaroid taken in front of our beautiful rainbow wall of Skinny Lockers. Plus, we’ll be offering the chance for someone to win a Skinny Locker (valued at $419) in the colour of their choice!
GEM THE LABEL
This is Gem the Label’s first time at The Finders Keepers and we are so excited to be bringing lots of our new pieces from our latest collection, Slice, and some exclusive pieces from our signature Bloom collection. We are a mindfully made, sustainable, slow fashion label and our pieces are madeby hand in our studio in Sydney! Our pieces are made from luxurious materials with bold and fun prints for the summer season. Usually, we make our pieces to order, however, this is the first time we will have a larger range for our lovely customers to try on in person which is really exciting! From dresses, tops, shorts and pants to playful accessories and homewares, Gem the Label’s debut at the Finders Keepers market this weekend is going to be spectacular!

GATHER AND HARVEST
We’ve got a couple of great new things that we’re bringing to the market this weekend. We’re just loving our new gift boxes; we’re so happy with how they turned out. They look so natural, calm and beautifully utilitarian. We have a Self-Care Gift Box and a Luminescence Gift Box for all the candle lovers out there.
THE SOCIAL OUTFIT
This weekend you can purchase a range of our bold garments and accessories crafted by our amazing team of refugee and new migrant sewers right here in Sydney. The Social Outfit is a fashion label with a difference. This is gifting for good.
