Chances are if you’ve ever had your luggage lost at the airport, you understand the value of a suitcase and all it can hold. Suitcase Rummage, a monthly market held in the city, is further testament to the precious contents that can be stored within a travel case. Unlike your average Brisbane markets, Suitcase Rummage is free of marquee tents selling glazed bowls and pungent homemade candles. Instead, it’s a laidback event packed to the suitcase brim with an eclectic mix of vintage clothes, artwork, bric-a-brac, handmade goods, second hand books and records.
On the first Sunday of every month, Reddacliff Place plays host to Suitcase Rummages’ scattered cases, market enthusiasts browsing for a bargain and a live band playing music from the sixties and seventies. Preloved clothes and shoes are a particular specialty of the markets, so it’s best to get their early to nab yourself something precious. If you have a few bits and bobs that you would like to stow in a suitcase and sell to the highest bidder, you can register to take part in the next Suitcase Rummage on their website.
