So, things have changed quite a bit since our last physical market! If you are attending a Suitcase Rummage market soon, we ask that you please follow our guidelines in order to keep everyone safe and minimise the risk of COVID transmission.
We have some good news to share! Suitcase Rummage in Brisbane is set to re-open from July 5th! With restrictions easing and following the guidelines in place by QLD Health, it looks like we’ll be able to be back Rummaging in just a few short weeks. Things will be slightly different and we need your help and support to ensure we can stay Rummaging, once we start up again! This means, being sensible and taking the new changes seriously.
We’re sad to announce today that we will be taking the necessary steps to suspend all upcoming Suitcase Rummage markets until further notice.
In the current state of events, the situation is rapidly changing around the globe with the outbreak of Covid-19. As per the COAG meeting on Friday, the Prime Minister advised that all non-essential events with more than 500 people should be cancelled starting from Monday 16th March onwards, as a precautionary measure to help address the spread of Covid-19. Unfortunately, Suitcase Rummage falls under this category, and it’s important to prioritise the health of our community. We can get through this together!
Some of you have been asking some questions about how Covid-19 will affect our Suitcase Rummage events this weekend. We appreciate your concern, and understand this is an unsettling time.
Thank you for your patience whilst we check in with the latest advice from local authorities.
We will be going ahead with our South Melbourne Suitcase Rummage & Canberra Suitcase Rummage scheduled for tomorrow. We will keep our Brisbane Rummagers updated incase any further information emerges over the weekend – but at this time, we are planning to go ahead with the market.
We have made the decision to CANCEL our Rummage for today (Feb 15) in South Melbourne. It’s just a bit too wet – and we don’t want you all setting up in this dreary, damp weather. There may be another storm on its way this morning (according to BOM’s predictions).
