We expect big things for Cheianna, the talent behind Shy Denim, a blossoming fashion brand that specialises in upcycling items of second hand clothing with simple yet bold embroidery. The pieces are colourful, distinct, and instantly make the wearer at least 50 times cooler. We’re evidently not that cool, so we take comfort in the fact that supporting this local handmade business will give us a few more points in this department. Give our interview with Cheianna a read and then try to challenge us on our stance that Cheianna and Shy Denim is the coolest person in existence. We dare ya!read more
Nina has just recently joined our Sunday set up crew in Brisbane, but she has been a punter and keen rummager for years and years! We imagine that more than half her wardrobe is made up of rummage finds, honestly! We couldn’t be more excited to have her sweet and calming presence on a hectic market day. Make sure to look out for her colour coordinated outfits!read more
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.read more
We feel so very lucky to have Nancy Wang as part of the Suitcase Rummage community! We first stumbled upon her work when she snapped portraits of people at a Rummage in Sydney and shared them on her Instagram, under the handle: @Candidnan. Her keen eye for interesting outfits and interesting people hooked us right away! Everyone she captures is so unique and beautiful, which is exactly what we love about our community. It is diverse, but united by the thrill of second hand clothing and the celebration of all that is handmade and creative! Nancy is an incredibly busy human, with her fingers in many pies, which is why we feel especially lucky to have had the following chat with her!read more
The 80s called and it’s super happy that the ‘scrunchie’ is still kicking! It’s the hair accessory that just won’t quit, and why would we want it to? This is the question we imagine Emily Gomersall asks herself daily as she hand makes scrunchies from lush velvet and quality cotton fabrics. We sat down with the sweet scrunchie enthusiast to hear about her love of crafting and vintage clothing.read more
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?
