COVID-19 Statement

To our Seller community, Supporters and friends of FK.

We want to assure you that we are absolutely all still in this together.

It breaks our markets hearts to bring you some further information on our current circumstances, in light of ongoing COVID-19 developments. Sadly for the safety and well being of our community and patrons, we've had no choice but to cancel our entire Autumn Winter season.

At this time, we’re asking you - our community - for your humility and extreme empathy, as we navigate through unchartered waters. We know this is causing immense hardship for many people and businesses in Australia, and all over the world. We too are a small business, we get it. 

Our priority is that we are there for our community when you’ll need us the most, and we'll do our best.

Until this point, we thank you for your courtesy and consideration. We continue to read and fill our love cups from all of your emails, comments and messages. We hope to share more of the positive stuff that creatives are doing right now to lift our spirits.

We are still planning to go ahead with our Spring Summer season and look forward to bringing back Finders Keepers in a new way.

We’re here to support you through these hard times, we want to keep the community support and creative spirit alive and will be working on simple ways that we can do that. We're going to be sharing the creative love and we’re open to ideas too!

How are you doing? What would you like to hear from us?

To our Seller community, Supporters and friends of FK.

We're all in this together.

In 12 years of operation and after hosting 64 successful events, this is the first event in our history, we've ever had wobbly legs. It breaks our market hearts to advise our community that our Autumn Winter Sydney Event will not be going ahead on the proposed dates due to this global pandemic.

A tremendous amount of time, resources and cold hard cash is already sunk for what will now be a massive loss for The Finders Keepers. To future proof our existence, we're working effortlessly to try to minimise this blow. At the same time, we're balancing the safety of our community at the core of our decision making.

To all of our Sellers and Visitors, Partners and Suppliers thank you for the ongoing support and warmth you've displayed so far during this crisis. Thank you for believing in us to bounce back and continue to serve you as a leader and champion of creative small business in Australia. 

The health and safety of our community is our first and foremost priority, and we are monitoring the situation closely with regular updates from the federal, state and city governments, as well as our venues. We're currently assessing the situation in Brisbane very carefully with our June event. We will continue to update this page weekly with any further developments. Stay tuned. Our Melbourne event is going ahead in July. 

Like the entire events industry and the creative community, The Finders Keepers will do everything they can to bounce back! We are a small business, and our business is markets. This is not our side hustle. It's our core business. Trust us that we will do everything in our power to continue to do what we can to support the creative community, but we also need you to help us.

Until we have new plans or can get some of our wild ideas off the ground to withstand this storm, please continue to support us and continue to support the small businesses we support too. 

You can shop now Online from the comfort of your own home, and support small creative business:  https://www.thefinderskeepersmarketplace.com/

Until the next update, everyone stay safe and wash your hands with plenty of hope soap.
