Come along and find some treasures at this suitcase rummage
Suitcase Rummage is setting up their suitcases in Brisbane City! A suitcase rummage is, of course where everyone packs their bags or suitcases full of unwanted goods and goes down to a market to sell them all out of the suitcase.
It is always a casual affair and I used to love rummaging through case after case looking for that special something that I would often find. Then again, I used to find treasures that I was not even looking for. If you hunt well, in the sides and corners, there are often some very pleasant surprises for the collector or those who just like buying clean used pre-loved items.
The organisers of this event have described it as a mini scaled market with giant rewards. It is sure to be everything that is a market but without any of the hassles. It's about bringing a suitcase (or two!) filled to the brim with all sorts of goodies. And it is amazing what you can actually fit into a suitcase! I find that this is a far more exciting way to shop for second-hand goods as there is more excitement at finding something which could possibly have been tucked away - this is to me, more fun than looking at a table of neatly arranged articles.
The event is FREE to attend both as a buyer and as a seller. It will be held on Sunday 7th July 2019 from 12.00 noon to 7.00 pm. It will be held at Brisbane Square and it is hosted by Suitcase Rummage.
You can be a part of this rummage experience by selling wares - maybe you have a lot of things you no longer use and/or want to de-clutter your house slightly - after all what is the point of keeping articles which you never use. I think it was Oprah Winfrey who once said that if you haven't used or worn it for a year, then get rid of it and although I tend to agree, I must be a bit of a hoarder as I keep things longer than that!
Alternatively, come along to buy some real beauties! Some of the things on offer will include:
Brilliant vintage goods
You name it - it will be there
Come for a bargain, a swap, or just an old-fashioned haggle as Monty Python would say! Suitcase Rummage is not to be missed!
If you wish to be a seller, you need to register to sell your wares, so please follow the ticket link above to book on their Facebook page. Organisers will then contact you with further information once you've registered!
The next step is... to bring your treats and goodies on the day and start selling like your grandma. Imagine the space you will have left back at home when you get back - you can go out shopping to fill it!
Suitcase Rummage is held regularly in Brisbane City, on the first and third Sunday of every month! They also host special Pop Up Rummages in various locations around Queensland from time to time!
