The Finders Keepers

Apply for a Stall

Want to apply to be a part of an upcoming Finders Keepers market? On this page you’ll find everything you need to know, and how you can apply. As well, you’ll find links to some handy hints, tips and tricks.

With many markets under our belt (and doing this for ten years), we’ve simplified the application process so you can now apply via a simple online form. It’s easy as pie.

But first, please read our Application Criteria in full before applying and our Stallholder FAQ’s for more info. These both contain vital information about our processes and will answer most of your questions. You’ll also find useful resources we prepared earlier about applying for the markets here.

First timer? If you’re new to the Finders Keepers we welcome you to apply for a debut stall which is our entry point stall. It’s a one time opportunity for new and startup businesses at a cheaper subsidised price. We now have two options our debut design stall and our debut fashion stall. You’ll find it in the price lists below. Want to go something bigger? You can absolutely select a bigger stall size from our options for your first time.

Application Process

Stallholder applications for the markets are only available if they are listed below. Links to our application forms will be posted clearly next to each event date once submissions are open. The form can be accessed by the ‘Apply Now’ button which will be visible only once applications have been open. If it says ‘upcoming’ check back in again soon.

If you don’t already have an existing account with Finders Keepers, you’ll be prompted to set one up once you start the application process. (Please note, you won’t be able to set up an account outside of the application open times).

You’ll be required to share some business details, product images and necessary documentation. We’d suggest preparing these details before you start the application process. We also highly recommend you apply from a desktop computer and not a smartphone or tablet.

Already have a log in? If you applied for a Finders Keepers markets in our SS17 season or any season in 2018, you’ll need to login to your account to complete a new application form. Your details will be pre-saved and this will help streamline the process for you. Huzah!

Once you complete your application, you will receive TWO confirmations.

  • A message ‘successfully sent’ message will be displayed on screen once you submit your application online; and
  • You’ll receive an email to confirm your application has successfully been received.

Missed the application dates and want to apply? We’re sorry! We can have large waiting lists! However if you want to join the queue for your chance on the waiting list feel free to email us and request to fill out a late application form.
Please note: you will not get contacted unless you fill a waiting list spot that we require.

Please kindly note: The Finders Keepers does not accept 'expressions of interest' emails as part of the application process. In addition, The Finders Keepers Markets are for Australian based residents only.

Stallholder fees cover the 3 days of market trade (they are NOT daily fees). Costs for each city vary slightly and are outlined as follows:
