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.
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!
Please meet our next Featured Rummage Re-Designer – Claire Humphrys!
Can you tell us a little bit about who you are and what you do?
I’m a bit of a legend in Melbourne. Many are still around who remember Gerry and I in the 60’s (the late Gerry Humphrys of iconic Oz rock band,The Loved Ones).We left for the UK in 72 after the first Sunbury, 20 years on I came back to Melbourne. Chrissie Amphlett’s book Pleasure and Pain pages 29/30 as I recall, we’re mentioned. I dyed her hair when she was still a girl. I do art on a daily basis, its like a compulsion, its always been that way for me. I do a lot of sketchbook work, putting down ideas.
