finders, keepers and creators of bespoke joy

Im a lover of bespoke creativeness, of inspired artisans that dedicate their working life to their passion, to their craft. So I revelled in my visit last night to the Finders Keepers Market. Oh there was MUCH revelling.  I’ve been nibbling round the edges of my desire to earn a crust from my creative genes for awhile now.  I look at those that do with a little envy, truth be told.

The market was a wonderful dose of inspiration….and I felt like a kid as I squished through the bustling crowd to peer onto the tables laden with delights.

A friend and I did a  *little* shopping.  And I am ridiculously excited about the arrival of my hand made to order Marque shoes (in shell blue) crafted by the lovely Marina (they are my official 4oth birthday present to myself).  I also had a mini splurge on BESPOKE letterpress boutiques stationery, I love there wares.  There was just so much too see, so I took a few snaps…

There was music, food and wine all around as you mooched and shopped = heaven.
