Stash & Treasure was described by it's organisers as an 'art and crafters recycling, decluttering, stash busting sale'. I heard about it at the last minute via the Frankie magazine blog and as it was in my neighbourhood I thought I'd wander down and take a look. The market was held inside the beautiful Marrickville Town Hall, entry was a gold coin donation which was donated to the Miracle Babies Foundation. On sale were vintage and antique fabrics; old books and sewing patterns; threads and wool; hand dyed linen and silk; and much more!

I actually ended up buying the piece of kimono fabric being displayed in the above photo, one day it shall become a scarf!

These old photographs also found their way home with me. I have no idea what I am going to do with them yet but I'm sure I'll find a use.

You can follow Stash and Treasure on Facebook if you would like to find out about any future markets.


The Finders Keepers spring/summer markets were held at CarriageWorks in Sydney this weekend, so I went along to get my fix of design goodness! As expected there was lots of creative talent on display and it was very hard to limit my purchases! Though I was very restrained and only bought one item—a print by the lovely Emma Leonard. I would love to have taken photos of all the stalls but there were just too many and it was quite crowded, so if you weren’t lucky enough to attend, here is a taste of what you missed! I’ll be back tomorrow with more! ❤
