happy buying at Finders Keepers...

One half of presse-papiers (Olivia) was lucky enough to visit the fabulous Finders Keepers over the weekend! Set in the beautiful venue of CarriageWorks near Newtown, it was filled to capacity with amazing designers and artists.  Outside was overflowing with people buying fresh coffee, food and flowers from the fantastic Eveleigh Grower's Market, and overall the atmosphere had a great buzz and vibe to it.

Of course the art and stationery designers had us happily captivated for a couple hours - Printspace, Bespoke Letterpress Design, Paper Boat Press, Love Mae, Frankie, Write to Me and La la land...

One stall that stole most of my pennies was that of TMOD - a fabulous business created by two designers, Georgie Swift and Milenka Osen.  Their interactive stationery range caught our eye earlier in the year at Life Instyle, and we have been spotting it ever since in lots of cool paper stores.  Dot-to-dot wrapping paper, scratchie cards and fortune tickets - need I say more!

Our wonderful distributor of MT masking tape, Telegram Paper Goods, is also the distributor of TMOD across Australia and New Zealand, so we will be definitely adding this to our product wish-list!  Do you like what you see?

We also spotted the Paper Convention Collective whose highly anticipated A4 Paper Festival begins in only a few days... Looks like another trip to the city without the kids! xx
