Introducing one of our brand new Rummagers! ... check out her suitcase this Sunday for some recovered treats!
My mother taught me never to waist anything. If you have old apples you stew them, if you have stale crackers you put them in the oven to make them crisp. This waist not want not mentality then shifted to textiles. If you have a nice dress that doesn’t fit anymore…turn it into a top or…if you have old bed linen turn it into a laptop sleeve!
Needless to say all Recovery items are handmade using recycled materials, making old into new. Most items are made from vintage bed linen that I have collected over time from op shops, some incorporate old scarfs and even old clothes that have been dismantled.
This Sunday will be my first Rummage, I will be selling laptop/ipad sleeves, charger cases, pencil cases and if I can manage to get it finished I will have a quilt cover for sale also.
I’m very excited to be a part of the rummage. Big thanks to the organiser’s of this easily accessible market .
