It's the incredibly creative Jimmy - a regular at our Rummage..
Hi gang, I'm Jimmy and I make clothing, accessories, jewelery and other miscellany under the label Restless. I only sell at the Suitcase Rummage at the moment along with a suitcase of vintage and retro clothing and knick knacks. I'm a veteran marketeer, 10yrs on and off, selling my wares from Valley to Byron Bay and the Rummage from their beginning.
My background is in visual arts and fashion design so I always bring some things that are fascinating and curious. In the previous rummages I've brought medical skulls, russian bear fur hats, my hand painted dolls to my own hair (when I had hair!) made into a necklace.
I occasionally bring my typewriter for people to write their own love letters. One time a fella wrote one that was 5 pages! I've been concentrating on leather craft lately, all my pieces are hand made and some are even hand stitched. I make new items every month so there's always something different at my stall. Look out for some ostrich, cane toad and snakeskin items in the future rummages! I reuse as much materials as I can, my leather are all cut offs and I use many things (like zips) from op shops. Thanks for continuing to support the Suitcase Rummage, vintage and retro gear and especially us, the local handmade artisans!
My name is Linda and I create beanies and more. I combine good quality yarns, quirky designs and embellishments to make individual looking beanies.
I have been selling my wares at markets around Brisbane for a few years now and love the people and atmosphere you find there. My favourite creation has been an Alice in Wonderland themed Mad Hatter Tea Party where beanies looked like teapots, cakes and scarves were made of iced vo vo's, cupcakes and fob watches.
