The Suitcase Rummage is one event on Brisbane’s regular event calendar that ticks a lot of boxes for my university lifestyle, it’s somewhere I frequently visit to host my own store, and also for a spot of vintage shopping. For those of you who don’t know, the Suitcase Rummage is a vintage marketplace that sets up in a number of locations in Brisbane on alternate weekends, where stall holders register online to set up shop and sell to the general public. It’s just $25 to secure a space at the regular market (must book online in advance) and you can sell anything and everything, at whatever price point you desire. There’s just one catch – you’re only allowed 3 suitcases of stuff, and you have to see from your suitcase, rummage style. From preloved clothing and brand name vintage threads to handmade goodies by Brisbane locals, the Suitcase Rummage is a great place to stop by, have a rummage and grab a bargain.
I recently held a market stall at the Brisbane square location (outside the Treasury Casino) and, as always, I fell in love with the street style I spectated, and couldn’t resist the opportunity to share it with you, because after all, us Brisbane folk are a stylish bunch, no matter what they say down south.
In true “Humans of New york” style, I invaded the personal bubbles of stylish browsers and got chatting with them before snapping a quick pic of the threads they were wearing. So here they are – cute, right!?
