Glittery and bold earrings to adorn our lobes with? Do tell us more! Renata channels her creative energy into a low key (but oh so sparkly) side project called By Ren, which she juggles on top of three other jobs! Her creations have a retro feel and would ideally be worn with an 80s Lycra outfit while dancing to Jane Fonda (in our fantasies, at least). Here’s our chat with the Melbourne creative.
Our eyes lit up when we first spotted Etc Body at a Brisbane Rummage! Handmade soaps are so lovely, especially when you know they’re free of drying and toxic ingredients and will be kind to your skin. It’s exciting to meet a hand maker who derives so much happiness from their craft and that’s why we’re very chuffed to introduce you to Etc Body!
We’ve long been impressed by the stall set up of Birdy J Design. It’s fun, colourful, and highly organised. Sunny, who is the maker behind it all, clearly keeps herself very busy. There’s so much hard work and love that shines through her handmade, woven jewellery pieces. To learn more about her background, read on! And make sure you say hi to her at a Brisbane Rummage some time. She’s super friendly!
A few months ago, we discovered that a keen Rummager called Chloe, who goes by @ribletrollfriday on Instagram, had started something called Rummage Picnics as a place for fashion appreciators to meet, talk about fashion and become friends! It’s a lovely community minded idea and we’re chuffed that Suitcase Rummage could serve as the meeting place and commonality between the picnickers. Make sure to read our interview with Chloe below and see how you can get involved!
Letitia, of My Little Pamplemousse, makes the cutest badges! Some are felted. Some are a mix of medias. And some look so darn good you’re tempted to eat them! Her philosophy is simple: a regular, drab outfit is an opportunity. An opportunity for a colourful pin to make the whole ensemble more exciting! This sentiment is absolutely something we can get on board with. Read our interview with Letitia below, especially if you’re a fan of fairy bread!
