My Weekend Market Finds

Well I have had an amazing market weekend. On Saturday I went with one of my besties Pamela to Adelaide to check out Bowerbird Bazaar especially after hearing so many glowing reviews. It lived up to the hype, a wonderful vibe in an old disused theater. There was great background music and some great food, wine and beer. Of course the stallholders were awesome, so much amazing talent in one place. I also got the chance to say hi to some of the fabulous Piccadilly stallholders. I could have spent a fortune but controlled myself and bought this awesome dinner rules tea towel from almond tree frames. We already live by most of these rules in our house. I am planning on covering a canvas with it and hanging close to the table for all to see.

I also picked up this gorgeous hanging bird hair clip holder from little luv. How unique and clever and how adorable is that vintage fabric.

I have added lots of lovely things to my ever expanding wish list, way too long to list here.

Today I went to the first Melbourne Finders Keepers Market held at Docklands. Over 150 stalls of amazing talent and again lots of people I knew. Here I totally fell for this Vintage Dress for my girls to share. It was from Miss Haidee who hails from Tasmania. I am a sucker for Vintage Fabrics, anything embroidered, Birds and Doilies and this little number has it all.




Then I stumbled across the story book rabbit and completely swooned. The impossible part was choosing just one item but this won and will take pride of place somewhere special in my new home. How totally adorable is the business card?


For anyone who knows my vintage caravan obsession and my love affair with Constance will know that my heart skipped a few beats when I discovered these beauties. Fiona the designer from tree party design and I are kindred spirits in that we both dream of having a relative of Constance living in our backyard one day.

I now need to lay very low after my indulgences until I get to shop at Piccadilly on November 28th.
Did anyone else make it to Finders Keepers? Did you buy anything interesting?
