It’s that time of year again and we CAN NOT wait to be Rummaging in Warwick again as a part of Jumpers & Jazz in July! For anyone who is familiar with this community Festival, they will know how infectious the colour, craft and crochet really is when wandering through this quaint little town. Each year (for the last six years, we think, we can’t be quite sure) we have set up our suitcases along the main street and back alleys, peddlin’ craft and vintage wares to all the locals and visitors who come out for this wonderful weekend of music and art. Stalls spaces are NOW OPEN!
We had such a wonderful time in Canberra a few weekends ago, so much so, that we wanted to share it with all our Rummage friends who couldn’t be there with us!
For the last six (or so) years we’ve teamed up with the creative folk behind Art, Not Apart – a community driven, inclusive arts festival, where the mantra is “united through art, no one’s apart.” And you know what? We think it’s pretty spesh. It’s an incredible day filled with smiling, delightful people, roving performances, dancing, music, art – and of course, a Suitcase Rummage!
We had such a fantastic time at the National Sustainable Living Festival last weekend in Melbourne! It’s always a hub of so many great people, thinkers, change makers, peace makers – and we learn something new each time we go.
Last Sunday, not only did we host a Suitcase Rummage (big shout out to all those creative folks who wheeled in their suitcases for the day!) but we also co-hosted a panel discussion Disrupting fashion to save the world to take the sustainable fashion conversation to the next level. We partnered up with the sister duo, Seljak Brand and brought together some passionate change makers.
How many of you are familiar with the name Marie Kondo? Perhaps you’ve read one of her books or recently been watching her TV show Tidying Up?!
Well, it’s a collective consensus here at Suitcase Rummage HQ and we are fans of Marie! The recent resurgence of Marie and her words of wisdom, I think is a great and timely reminder to kick start 2019 with a fresh perspective and outlook. Perhaps it’s less about minimalism and more about keeping mindful?
“Frock Paper Scissors is more than just a fashion magazine. Produced and curated by students, Frock gives young minds the opportunity to showcase their work and delve into unexplored territory, separating Frock from other magazines on the market.” We caught up with the creative bunch behind this years fresh pages and were really inspired by their commitment and vigour.
