Stall Feature of the Month!

Shanice Casey creates the most mystical, magical, artistic creations. Without sounding too clichéd, her work draws us into a dark, yet beautiful world. We strongly recommend you see it for yourself, but don’t say we didn’t warn you when you suddenly find yourself surrounded by native flowers in an alternate universe.

Introducing our Rummage Staff…. Say G’day to Maeve!

Maeve joined the Rummage team almost three years ago as our first ever intern and it hasn’t been the same since! (We mean that in the best way possible!). She has a stellar sense of humour, wears the best kinds of spots, dots and socks to our meetings, and keeps our spirits high with dance breaks in between (sometimes) maddening email writing. In her non Rummage time, Maeve does all sorts of creative, crafty and heart warming projects, which include daggy dancing and illustrating the older houses of West End. We love this big / little dork with all our hearts and we hope you enjoy learning a little more about her!

Getting chatty with Reverse Garbage Qld!

Late last month, Daniele caught up with Kade Hamalainen from Reverse Garbage Qld to learn a little more about what they do and why. Utilising waste as a resource is starting to get more traction (finally!!) and this socially and environmentally driven initiative is truly fantastic. Making a new garden bed? Go to Reverse Garbage! Doing some renovations at home? Go to Reverse Garbage! Getting crafty with your kids? Go to Reverse Garbage! It’s affordable, 100% recycled and doing good for our planet. Read on for more insights and recycling tips.

Stall Feature of the Month!

If you’ve ever been to a Brisbane City Suitcase Rummage, you’d probably recognise John and his vintage suitcases covered in stickers. John loves a loud shirt and can often be spotted talking about comic books, superhero paraphernalia and hilarious stickers (all of which he also happens to sell). His set up is impressive, and so is the man himself! He’s been Rummaging with us for so long that we figured it was about time to share his passion, excitement and greatness with you all! We hope he never tires of doing what he loves and continues to entertain us with his stories forever more!

Getting chatty with Emily Nelson

We recently caught up with the delightful, cheery and talented Emily Nelson. She is a local illustrator and old time Rummager (we miss her super cute hand painted brooches and portraits!). When she’s not painting dolphins or rainbows or doggos, she’s usually out patting one! Read on for more bouts of whimsy, creative insights and mentions of cute critters.

Introducing our Rummage Staff…. Say G’day to Naomi!

Presenting our thrifty maker Naomi Huntsman (aka The Sewloist). When this lass isn’t sewing up a storm, she’s usually out thrifting for more fabrics, working at a Brisbane Rummage or running a craft workshop. Naomi is one of those people who gets things done. She has an idea, plans it, and then makes the magic happen! We have loved watching her ethical business grow over the last year or so, and we can’t wait to see the next vintage Ken Done print she whips up into a dress (seriously!).
