For our first ever Rummage Love Staff Feature, we introduce to you, Jimmy Eng from Brisbane! Jimmy has been with the Rummage Team from the very beginning, selling his own handmade treasures when we first set up in King George Square. 7 years later and you’ll still find him unloading the Rummage table and other miscellaneous things for set up, and laughing the whole time. He has a great laugh.
Did you know that it’s Plastic Free July?
What does that mean we hear you ask?! It’s a challenge to try and live without the use of single-use plastic (things like straws, plastic wrapped packaging on food items for example). The aim of the challenge is to raise awareness of the problems with single-use disposable plastic and challenges us to do something about it!
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.”
Unfortunately, it seems the weather gods are not on our side for our Sydney Rummage on Sunday February 26th.
With great sadness, we will have to reschedule. Our new date is Sunday March 26th!
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!
