Footscray Finds is a monthly market and car boot sale located in Footscray selling the unique, boutique, hard-to-find and preloved items, along with food stalls and barista made coffee.
It started out in June 2017 outdoors at the Footscray Library Car Park and is now housed indoors to the amazing Footscray warehouse space The Line.
It is held on the 2nd Sunday of each month from 9am-2pm. All stalls are internal and very much sheltered from wind and rain so no need for wet weather gear.
I’m not expecting anyone to be around early in the morning but it’s already full of families browsing the preloved clothing, toys and fresh produce.
There are numerous car boot stalls plus local food vendors, food trucks and stalls from local businesses. Stallholders can apply for either car boot or a 3 x 3m marquee space (BYO marquee and all equipment), for $50 per space.
If your kids have left you bleary-eyed then your first stop should be the coffee van – before the crowds arrive!
We buy pastries and bread…
…a Western Bulldogs hand-knitted tea cosy…
…and I want the traffic lights – a perfect prop for The Inspire9 Dream City!
Footscray Finds has a wonderful local atmosphere – it showcases local small businesses and it’s a gathering place for the inner west community.
I buy goods from my neighbours, the grannies who are part of the Footscray Library knitting club and the local florist.
I’m sure Footscray Finds will become more popular as word spreads. Put the next dates in your diary and set your alarm!
