Finders Keepers have announced that in place of their Autumn Winter season of in-person events this year, they will be taking their popular boutique market online with a first of its kind virtual event ‘Finders Keepers at Home’ from 19-21 June.
They have collaborated far and wide with makers, artists and designers, to create an unforgettable immersive online program of events for their creative community during these crazy COVID times.
When we asked Annalyse McLeod Communications Manager of Finders Keepers how different the online event would be to the in person event, she said “We’ve tried really hard to not replace one with the other. Just like you can’t replace a real-life hug with a Zoom chat, our coming together at events is something we knew we couldn’t compete with, but this didn’t stop us from creating something new and equally as special. Our IRL events are all about creativity, community and connecting, and while we won’t be seeing you in the flesh the basis of the online version will still be the same, it is based on creativity, community and connecting (in new ways).”
Thursday 18 June will see the online marketplace kick off the event, where shoppers can browse the virtual market aisles of the Finders Keepers stalls and snap up some exclusive ‘event weekend only’ specials through to Sunday 21 June.
The official ‘Finders Keepers at Home’ program begins on Friday 19 June and Annalyse said we can expect that “Over three HUGE days, Finders Keepers at Home will be your host of maker movies that explore behind the scenes content, studio demonstrations, a day in the life of your favourite designer, creative rituals, how-to tutorials as well as a huge virtual fashion runway. Pre-purchased workshops will also run all weekend and most importantly you can continue to support small business and shop small via the Finders Keepers online marketplace. You can watch all of the content at your own pace via Finders Keepers at Home, plus, highlights featured on our social accounts over three event days.”
The full program for Finders Keepers at Home will be released in the coming days so you can browse to your hearts content and earmark all of your favourites.
