2013 Suitcase Rummage Silly Season Pledge

Here at Suitcase Rummage HQ, we are big fans of the Oxfam 3Things initiative. After all, one of the Rummage mottos is 'To focus on supporting Australia’s local, entry­‐level entrepreneurs, their locally produced handmade, recycled and up-­‐cycled products from a suitcase.'

Oxfam 3Things is a movement for Global Goodness. They believe that if each of us take small positive steps, together we can make some big changes. And we couldn't agree more!

Suitcase Rummage is a grass roots market designed to encourage members of the community to engage in ethical exchange through their advocacy of local Arts & Crafts, fostering DIY entrepreneurs, and supporting a sustainable economy. 

Last year we launched our Suitcase Rummage Silly Season Pledge and we were so chuffed at the encouragement we received. It seems there are quite a few Rummagers out there who also love being apart of a creative, robust and sustainable community! So since we have been hearing the word 'Christmas' bandied about at a few Rummages of late, we decided it was not too soon to launch our Silly Season Pledge for 2013.

There is plenty of time. All around Australia there are wonderful markets and outlets you can visit. Find the time to find them. Ride your bike, take the tram, train or bus, car pool, hover board to your favourite shop or market (and if you live remotely, jump online!). 

So pretty please, won't you join us again in our Suitcase Rummage Silly Season Pledge by supporting Australian made and grown, hand-made and fairly-traded art, craft produce, services and goods?

Take the pledge, pass it on and help make this Silly Season extra special!

And let us know about it! Show us what wonderful gifts you unrummage at your next Suitcase Rummage. Email us a picture of you with your silly season good(ness). suitcase rummage(at) We have some wonderful Pop Ups coming up, as well as our regular Rummages....
