Finders Keepers Sydney

 

Yesterday, I boarded a plane with Renee (@thehappyorganicgirlau) to Sydney. Why? To check out the Finders Keepers market held at Barangaroo. You may recall, a few weeks back I visited the Finders Keepers in Brisbane also. I think it’s always nice to check out the market myself before I apply for the future markets .I believe only only myself can tell whether I fit in the event. It’s a lot of investment to go interstate markets, we’ll have to pay for the stall fees, the logistics, and get people to look after the shop at South Melbourne, etc etc. Lots of factors need to consider and that’s why I prefer to personally visit all these markets to see whether it’s worth it or not.

Anyway.

Our morning started with a quick coffee and croissant at Brunetti’s before boarding.Our flight was packed however we were both so excited for Sydney we chatted and laughed the whole way and before we knew it, we had landed.

he weather was cloudy yet still warm. We decided to stop at Circular Quay first and walk up to The Rocks to check out the markets. Stopping to admire the Opera House and Harbour Bridge, it’s amazing how much you miss seeing them now we are both located in Melbourne.

Arriving at Finders Keepers in Barangaroo was quite surreal. Its been transformed completely.

Many people were waiting for the doors to open at 10am!

The feel is very different to Melbourne or Brisbane. It’s nice to see that each market has their own vibe. The space at Barangaroo is incredible, located in The Cutaway,the ceiling is high with a beautiful natural backdrop of stone to one side.

Mother’s Day Gifts

mothersday_web

Mother’s Day is just around the corner and we have some incredible ideas for Mother’s Day gifts!

This year I have illustrated an Emu mum giving her little one a kiss for our Mother’s Day products theme. As mother’s day illustration usually full of love hearts and bears I decided to give a little bit more Aussie “accent” in my illustration.

This illustration is printed on card, cushion and mug. They are all available on my website and in store and the mug can be personalized as well.

Hello from the other side

Hello from Hong Kong!! I am so excited to see my little brother getting married on Sunday! Renee, my wonderful friend, will be working at the shop at South Melbourne Market from today until I come back. She is the nicest person I’ve ever work with. I am sure she’ll bring more happiness to the shop!

We’re back!

Our pop up shop at South Melbourne Market will be back from this Wed 14 Dec to the end of Jan 2017!

facebook

We are very lucky to have the opportunity to be back at South Melbourne Market! We had a great time when we had our first pop up at So:Me space. The response from the public was massive! I am extremely honoured to be loved by so many local and people around the world. The nicest feeling is when we have returned customers. For a long time I was in doubt whether I am doing the right thing. I was a CPA accountant by trade and to leave my full time job to do this is such  massive decision for me and my husband. The pop up shop in the last two months certainly gave me the confidence that I have made the right decision. When I see more and more people came back to my shop and some people even brought their friends and family it is a really good feeling.

I’ll write a bit more of what I’ve learn from the pop up shop later. I better get back to prepare the pop up this Wed!

Ciao for now.

More new products!



Honestly I have all these amazing products at the pop up shop but I am too busy to put them on the websitewww.sukimcmaster.com! And also everytime I put something up they usually sold out straight away! So I am really sorry for not updating the online shop quick enough! I still haven’t finished updating yet but at least the prints and the baby bibs are up to date now! 

Looking for extra special present? 

What we have learnt from our pop up shop is most of our customers are looking for a present for their friends. Since we are printing our mugs now we thought it might be a good idea to offer customized mugs for our customers? We have a great responds at Finders Keepers last week and we are thrilled to let you know the custom option is now available on our website!


To order the costinized mug is easy. Find the mug you like and choose “custom order” at option menu. Let us know what you like to print at the comment section at check out. We will email you to confirm the order and ittakes about a week to print. 
You can visit our website at to view our full mugs range.

Finders Keepers

I can’t believe Finders Keepers was a week ago now! It felt like it was only yesterday!

We had a fantastic time at Finders Keepers! If you’re thinking about applying it? Go for it. It’s really worth it. If you have a lot of products like me. Maybe you should jump straight to a bigger stall. It’s much easier to plan and it looks so much better with a bigger stall! You will make your money back anyway so why not?

This is so small that I can’t even turn around! If I eat too much for breakfast I probably won’t fit in!!

Another thing I was really concern before the show was -how much stock should I bring? It said there were more than 9000 people came to the show last time! So I am really concern how much stock is enough? After three days of the market , I realized that unless you have a truck load of stocks it’s never going to be enough and you’ll never know what is going to sell best at the market. I sold out all the mugs the first night. I send message to my husband and asked him to print more mug so I can bring them in the next day! So the next day I brought in heaps of mugs and I sold NO MUGS! 😱 what the hell? I sold more than 60 prints on the second day and some of the prints were sold out. So I brought in more print the next day! And yes again I sold only a few prints. I sold mainly the cushions on Sunday! So the conclusion is YOU NEVER KNOW!

If you’re attending Finders Keepers the first time make sure you have your brand printed out big and bright. Make sure you have heaps of business cards. Plan your display at home at least 2 or 3 times at home. Make sure you can get in and out of your stall. Have a plan B. Finger crossed for you!!
