Melbourne Finders Keepers Market 2016

Claire Best

It was a busy but enjoyable weekend at Finders Keepers a few weeks back. Apart from teaching of course, shoe making can be a pretty solitary affair! So it was lovely to meet so many new faces and introduce some new customers to Claire Best Handmade Shoe designs. It was also nice to be on the receiving end of a design brief, with the beautiful yellow box shelves I had custom made by a furniture designer who resides in Yarravile.  If you missed out, not to worry as I shall be re-appearing at The Big Design Market in just a few weeks, also at the Exhibition Building. Come visit my stall  and say hello!
