Natalie, of Lostkiwidesigns makes the sweetest little origami creations. Her delicate jewellery is made from beautiful paper and adorns the ears of many appreciative Rummagers! We managed to interview this creative about her craft and also found out about her work as a graphic designer!
We asked the ever delightful Belinda Suzette to pen an article for us about ‘stuff’. And boy oh boy, did she deliver! Read along to hear about some of the amazing treasures she has collected over the years, and how she finds value in the items she keeps.
There is poetry in stuff. My old housemate and I used to play a game that I have since named ‘Know Your Product’…
Introducing the one and only…. ash.leia! We had a little chin wag with embroidery queen Ashleigh from Canberra. She’s been stitching up her year finishing school and weaving in as many markets as possible. What a creative and crafty lass!
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!
Rory and Olivia, are the two lovely women behind a new Brisbane based initiative called the
Unknown Project. It sounds a bit mysterious, and it is! The duo take good quality second-hand books, wrap them in brown paper and add clues about the book’s content. The buyer is essentially getting a lucky dip. And the best part? All proceeds go towards providing school resources to children from refugee and asylum seeker backgrounds in Brisbane.
