Little Girl Blue - our new collection at May Finders Keepers!

We are still doing little polite whoops of excitement here at Ginny & Jude's because of we have been accepted into the Autumn/Winter Finders Keepers Market at Carriageworks!

The Finders Keepers is Sydney's (and soon to be Brisbane's) finest curated market featuring handmade goods from an array of local up-and-coming designers and artists.
Each participating designer and artist has been hand-picked by founders Brooke Johnston and Sarah Thornton making it a thoroughly satisfying cornucopia of appeal and originality.

If the beautiful flyer isn't enough to act as a winning argument in favour of the markets (designed by very talented Melbourne artist Catherine Cambell, check her etsy store myfolklover for more loveliness), then the lineup of participatory talent should sway you.

...We already have some clear favourites:

Publisher Textiles for their amazing wallpaper prints

Wall decals by Vinyl Designs (above) and Made By White (below)

Kuwaii for their gorgeous tailored clothes...this particular combination is number one on the wishlist.

We have always liked a good bunch of branches and this particular option from Shady Designs is pretty fab.

Don't forget the kitchen! Materialistic have an amazing selection of teatowels...but which one to choose?!

And us? We have been busy little bees putting together our Little Girl Blue collection for Autumn/Winter 09.
Hand-knitted mohair collars and neck-muffs, monocle pendants, spherical botanical lockets, headpieces and many more surprises to come including a series of hand-bound notebooks by local artist Lyndal Irons; commissioned specially by Ginny & Jude's to complement our new collection.

see you there!
