Jeepers… Finders Keepers… what a weekend. The sun was in glorious form for the Brisbane Finders Keepers market last weekend. We had Frankie the caravan positioned in amongst the roses and the trumpet creepers… spectacular setting. It was such a fun market….. we had the music cranking, our new coffee friend ‘Muriel the Kombi’ of Kombi Koffein was pumping out the coffee… I can’t express what a great time Timothy O and I had…. it felt like a summer festival! Thank you so much to all who came by to say hello and to see us…. it makes such a difference having a chat and meeting new people… I love it….

… Come Sunday afternoon after the pack up of the market it was great to be back at home and sitting down on the sofa exhausted…..I had a quick flip through this Margaret Olley book… a new acquisition…. I adore her work…

… I had heard about this milk, Scenic Rim 4Real Milk, on the radio last week and I was delighted to find it at Sourced Grocer in Teneriffe in Brisbane there were squeals of excitement . Farmer Greg is taking on the big supermarkets and is offering farm gate real milk with minimum processing to shops and cafes with low ‘food miles’. Check out his website if you are in Brisbane to find out where you too can find delicious proper milk. A lot of farmers in Australia get a pretty raw deal when it comes to the supermarkets, so I am so thrilled to be able to support this particular farmer who is doing it himself….

… I came across this old frame at my friend Tony’s antique shop which I decided to put in the kitchen… along with some old copper scoops I sourced from out west recently….

… the house smells very zingy now after the market….. my mother gave me lots and lots of fresh lemons to decorate our trestle tables with for the Finders Keepers market and now we have them everywhere…. I love home grown lemons….

Market Tomorrow – Last one for the year

 I know this weekend will be a busy one with Christmas shopping, though what I have been telling my friends and family is to come by the Powerhouse market early; that way it is cooler and you will get a park…. do a special food shop there – so fresh and it feels good to support a farmer… pick up some fancy posh treats too ….and then come and see us!

Here is a little ‘advent calander’ countdown I’m doing around the house on instagram…. Four days to go….

Round Up

The Design Files Feature
Daily Imprint Feature

What a day yesterday was…. did you check out the ‘New Arrivals’ in the shop?…. I’m always a bit nervous once I hit ‘Go Live’ on the shop site, hoping that you will like my new finds….

To top things off Travelling Wares was featured on both of Australia’s top and leading design blogs yesterday – The Design Files (you may remember our house was featured last year) and also Daily Imprint. Both blogs are held in such high regard by design lovers and I have been such an avid reader of both for such a long time. I still can’t believe our little humble caravan was mixing it up with the cool kids of the art and design crowd. Thank you so much Lucy Feagins of TDF and Natalie Walton of Daily Imprint.

Now, back to work…. we have a market THIS Saturday… I better get my skates on and pack up the online orders and get ready for Saturday! I think it will be a good one!
