Suitcase Rummage 2020
Trawl through Brisbane's favourite luggage-based trash 'n' treasure.
UPDATE: APRIL 1, 2020 — Due to government restrictions on public gatherings, the Suitcase Rummage event on April 4 is no longer going ahead. Instead, Suitcase Rummage is hosting an online market via its Instagram account. You can find more details here.
If one man's trash is another man's treasure, then a trunk full of junk may as well be a treasure chest. Suitcase Rummage gets that when it comes to shopping, second-hand reaps the best bang for your buck. For years, it has been hosting regular events around town, and now it's back for 2020.
Next happening from 12–5pm on Sunday, February 16 at Brisbane Square, the event will feature a crowd of open suitcases filled with the type of clothes, knick-knacks and craft you probably don't need but definitely deserve. If you can't make it this time around, try again on the first and third Sundays of each month — and, if you've got a pile of unwanted bits and pieces that someone else could love, you could always take your own suitcase along.
Those who wanting to sell their wares must register — and it'll cost $25 for a 'stall'. You can bring up to three suitcases, so you can lug in all those shoes you've been promising to wear but certainly will not.
