Here’s a bit of a sneak peek at something I’ve been working on with Poly Australia . Check out the article from Commercial Real Estate below for one last look at the former Bankstown RSL in all its glory.
This is the old Bankstown RSL Club as it’s never been seen before, in the days before its demolition and replacement next door by a new club, as captured by photographer Brett Patman, whose Lost Collective specialises in taking images of deserted buildings.
I spoke to Samantha Brett from 7News Sydney about some of the work I’ve been doing with Lost Collective for the past decade.
Sydney’s abandoned history is being kept alive thanks to the efforts of a former builder – Brett Patman from Lost Collective – who’s now turned to building a vast collection of places normally hidden from public view.
It’s hard to believe that only a year has passed since we started doing markets, so it is rather fitting that the anniversary will be happening right where it all started – The Finders Keepers Sydney Autumn/Winter Market .
If you haven’t already, RSVP to stay updated on any news closer to the event.
There is also plenty of other spectacular images, which for various reasons (it’s really one reason), I can’t share publicly on a forum like this. But I do add them to the crate we take to the markets if you wanted more incentive to come and have a browse. In fact, here is one of them right now.

If you haven’t been to Barangaroo before, fear not! The handy map below will help you find your way. If you are catching public transport, the entrance to the market is roughly a seven minute walk from Wynyard Station . Otherwise if you have your own transport, metered parking is available on the street or in the Barangaroo Reserve Parking Station at Towns Place.

Check the handy map below for the location of Marrickville Town Hall. There is also a bus stop directly in front of the venue. You can get there by catching the 418 , 425 or 426 .
The Makers And Shakers Market is a fiercely independent event powered by the goals and values of the handmade movement, striving to play a little part in creating the shift from the consumption of mass-produced products, to the mass-consumption of locally and authentically produced product.
