Yippee! With all this spare time on my hands now that uni is not something I have to worry about anymore (yes I’m still trying to get used to not having to study on weekends!), I’ve been working on some new projects I’ve always wanted to do and one thing I’ve always wanted to do is to bring my flower shop to markets more. I love the festive atmosphere of markets and also, they’re a great place to meet customers in person and to share my floral headpieces so they can be held & tried on.
I’m super-ridiculously excited to announce that K is for Kani will be participating in the Finders Keepers AW16 Market in Melbourne this July 22-24! Finders Keepers is one of those events that I personally just adore. I love the curated experience and being able to have all of my favourite local brands and designers at my fingertips in one common venue. It’s the best place for finding unique pieces for my home and wardrobe and it’s also the perfect place to pick up presents for friends as well. Being in the Royal Exhibition Building, the market is as gorgeous as it is both inside and out – I always admire how much effort stallholders put into setting up their stall and merchandising their products. The atmosphere is so creative, fresh and full of community spirit – I knew I wanted to be a part of it one day.
For three massive days, we’ll be setting up our stall alongside 250+ other spectacular independent artists and designers at the stunning heritage listed Royal Exhibition Building. I am so excited about my second ever market that I decided to triple my stall size from our first market – fingers crossed I can fill it up! As well as our current lines which are all in store now, I’ll be bringing our new ranges to the market too so you can shop all of these first as well before they had up online. We’ll be releasing some sneak peeks of all the floral headpieces we’ll be bringing before the event, so you can browse before you visit.
So mark your diaries & come meet me and my flower friends!

We know there are lots of customers who love to shop our stall looking for a headpiece to pair for an outfit for a special event whether it be birthdays or for a wedding and we would love to help out! Feel free to bring any pictures etc and we would love to hand-select suggestions from our store for you.
Can’t wait to meet you all in July! I’m heading off now to work like crazy prepping for the market.
