Finders Keepers Market is the new hip and happening attraction launching on the new, covered upper deck parking of the Rosebank Mall on 10 November.

This trendy shopping meander will be a hotspot for tourists and locals, to imbibe the energy and pulse that Jozi, the city of Gold has to offer.

Finders Keepers is an upmarket craft and Sunday market and promises to be an exciting, fun-filled experience for the whole family. "Our entertainment will be fresh and funky and will boast a diverse group of authentically African musicians, magicians, puppeteers, mime artists and buskers who will contribute to the electric atmosphere of Summer Sundays", says innovator, Dana Druion.

The market, called Finders Keepers Market, will showcase a mix of South African and African craft (from all over Africa - Malawi, Congo, Nigeria, Burkina Faso etc.). We are putting together the finest selection of arts, crafts, antiques, clothing, toys and delectable, mouth-watering foods and beverages. Stalls will offer shoppers an array of beautifully created craftwork, interesting bric-à-brac, unusual antiques, original clothing and an eclectic assortment of handmade gifts, not to mention the tantalising food section that will showcase gourmet delights from the heart of the city ‘s culinary community.

There will be unusual offerings available for all ages, and visitors have to just be willing to “seek” in order to “find”.

Paul Bacher, CEO of Finders Keepers, is also CEO of ORT JET, an organisation which he founded to mentor and assist businesses and business people. Pauls’ vision includes one of mentoring and assisting traders to take their businesses to the next level, possibly even becoming tenants in The Mall centre (a vision fully supported by Hyprop – the managers of The Mall). This vision has already translated into the selection process for traders, where they are being encouraged to innovate original and unique ranges. Many traders are feeling challenged and stretched, but are already generating wonderful new ideas and projects.

Another unusual aspect of this market is that we are endeavouring to showcase as many self-help and sustainability projects as possible. For example, there is a project knitting “gogo dolls” which are adorable knitted friends. We will encourage members of the public to drop any unused wool into a basket at their stall, for use in these beautiful creations. There are many traders creating funky tin toys using recycled soda cans. Members of the public can deposit their empty cans at these stalls for recycling. In this way, we hope to create a community/trader empowerment partnership.

Finders Keepers is that unique Johannesburg shopping experience, a trip that will explode with a kaleidoscope of colours, tastes and visual delights. We highly recommend you visit this one stop shop for FINDS that will KEEP you coming back for more!

The market will open on 3 November, but will officially launch on 10 November. We would like to invite members of the public to join us for our opening, and to enjoy the fabulous sights and sounds on offer!
