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!
What does this mean for future events? We have rescheduled our events set for April, and have our dates in May on hold until further notice. We will notify everyone when registrations re-open as more information becomes available.
What if I have already registered for a future event? For any stalls who have registered with us for upcoming events, we will of course offer a refund or credit to a future market. If you have already registered with us, you will receive an email from us with further information and details regarding these changes.
We understand this is an uncertain and unsettling time for us all. It’s really heartbreaking for us to suspend and postpone our events. Our Rummage community is so important to us, and we’d like to thank you so much for all of your support. We’re also working on ways to continue to support small businesses and creatives during this time, as like us, small businesses, freelancers, independents, makers and creatives will be among the hardest hit financially during this time.
Even though we won’t be rummaging for a little while, we will absolutely be present online, sharing news and updates, and keeping our community spirit high through our social media channels and e-newsletter.
