Introducing Astrid from GCBRV…
Talented young lass, Astrid, is a regular Rummager at our Canberra markets. Alongside being a full time visual arts student at the Australian National University she runs an embroidery project/brand that goes by the rather cryptic name of gcbrv. She let us know that it’s not all that mysterious, and is just shorthand for “good Canberra vibes”, which is something we can get in to! Astrid started off embroidering tote bags and since then her passion and skill has led her to create embroidered pieces on t-shirts, patches, hats, commissioned pieces, you name it!
We are so delighted to announce that we’ll be hauling our suitcases towards Toowoomba and Warwick very soon!!
If you’re interested in joining us for a stall, you can register here.
If you’d like to come along for a browse, a sticky beak, and a shop! You can find more information here.
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 Sarah Tan!
This month we caught up with Melbourne designer and henna extraordinaire, Sarah Tan! Illustration, design, art and henna are more than passions for this delightful artist; who takes inspiration from Malaysian architects, is propelled by positivity and making an impact in her community.
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!
Olivia and Cynthia are two creative friends who often share a Suitcase Rummage stall at our Canberra Rummage! Neither of them can watch TV without a project in their hands. And, if that project is made from recycled materials they find the creation even more satisfying. Ultimately, they just love being creative! And we think they’re gosh darn good at it.
