As you would probably figure, we are suckers for old school suitcases! And that’s why BassCase, a business that upcycles vintage suitcases into speakers, prompts music to our ears. We spoke to Scott, who works alongside his partner Emily to create these cool, portable and downright ingenious music playing doodads.

“We love the fact that each of our pieces are unique and that we get to create a little art piece in every BassCase that we design.”

Introducing Kathy Seton, from Meta Designs Co!

Kathy Seton, of Meta Designs, jokingly refers to herself as the ‘accidental clothes maker’. She claims that she fell into making clothes and it wasn’t something she ever planned or trained to do. Well, however it happened, we’re so glad that it did!

Introducing Maddy from PotatoQueeen Clothing! Meet Maddy and Nancy, the mother daughter duo behind PotatoQueeen Clothing. These lovely lassies are Brisbane Suitcase Rummage regulars! We catch up with the duo and talk fighting crime, designing times, little bro inspo and puppy love.   Read the full interview below! Can you tell us a little bit about who you are and what you do? PotatoQueeen is a team effort between mum (Nancy)  and I. Nancy is a fully qualified designer/dressmaker, and I’m a full time criminology and criminal justice student as well as the designer for all PotatoQueeens clothes. Basically I come up with the crazy ideas and designs and mum makes them happen! Why do you do what you do? PotatoQueeen was born after I stopped being able to find clothes I liked in mainstream fashion stores. I’m not a particularly tall person, but most skirts available in stores are way too short for me!  I eventually got mum to agree to make me some clothes I had dreamed up, and once she did we got friends, family and even random people stopping me in the street to ask where I got my clothes from! We decided that we had a market here for original clothes and people willing to buy them, so why not give it a shot? Who are some other artists, crafters, creatives that you love? And why? I think my mum and my little brother inspire me to create the most. They’re some of the most creative people I know. Local artists and designers such as Ella Mobbs from Creep Heart, Lauren Carney and Black Milk also really inspire me to create really beautiful and intricate designs. I take a...

Introducing Rachael from Servant Ceramics! Suitcase Rummager regular and Brisbane based potter, who’s love of useful, functional and beautiful vessels earn her a spot in our good books. We caught up with the lovely lass to talk about all things porcelain, making, sharing, and her creative process. Read the full interview below! Can you tell us a little bit about who you are and what you do?  I’m Rachel. I work with clay and love making beautiful, functional and useful vessels. Why do you do what you do? As a child, my parents were passionate about community and loved including people around our dinner table. The simple act of eating together was a powerful sign of inclusion, love and care. I make vessels that can be used to enrich and enhance the daily eating experience. I uphold that when you eat from a hand-crafted plate or sip from a wheel thrown cup, you aren’t alone but you are in the company of the Maker. Who are some other artists, crafters, creatives that you love? And why? I really adore: Smith and Others – Matty and Jo craft some absolutely beautiful furniture and are a genuinely lovely couple Meekz Contempoary Jewellery – I have a pair of Jemica’s recycled studs which are always in high rotation use – I love them! Myelectic and The Attic – Anita and Michelle are fantastic Suitcase Rummage stallholder buddies! Since neighbouring them at a SR last year, whenever I hear that  they’ve signed up, I’ll sign up – spending a market with them is always an excellent day!! Reborn Handmade – Renae’s purses and earrings are such high quality work! I have...
