Rifle through the bargains at Redlands Suitcase Rummage


Now there’s a legal way to rummage through someone else’s suitcase!

Redland Performing Arts Centre will host the inaugural Redlands Suitcase Rummage Sale on its outdoor plaza on Saturday 27 September from 11am – 4pm.

The event is being run in conjunction with Suitcase Rummage (Eventbrite), who run similar events around Australia.

Redland City Council Community and Cultural Spokesperson Cr Lance Hewlett said people can still register to sell suitcases of goods.

“The Suitcase Rummage is a chance for people to sell bits and pieces without having to organise a full market stall,” Cr Hewlett said.

“It’s amazing what treasures can be bought and sold from a suitcase and we’re hoping for a great variety including clothing, bric-a-brac, jewelry, recycled wares and craft.

“It should be a quick way for people to make some extra money and we are looking forward to seeing everyone’s creativity coming out.”

Cr Hewlett said there would be a series of suitcase rummage sales, including one just before Christmas.

“The first event on Saturday 27 September will be followed by one on 13 December 2014 and a third market in March next year.

“Entry to the markets will be free, so it would be great to see people getting out, supporting these pop-up events and scoring some suitcase bargains.”

To be part of the sale, people need to register their suitcase through www.suitcaserummage.eventbrite.com.au

A suitcase market spot (up to three suitcases per spot) costs $25.00 plus a $2.49 handling fee, payable online to Suitcase Rummage (Eventbrite).

    Suitcase Sale sounds wonderful…but if there is an entry fee of $25.00..
    A suitcase market spot (up to three suitcases per spot) costs $25.00 plus a $2.49 handling fee, payable online to Suitcase Rummage (Eventbrite).
    …it defeats the purpose of helping sellers make a few dollars.
    $25.00 is a lot to recuperate….unless you have suitcase of diamonds, antiques and valuables.
    Most small scale sellers have items that sell at around $5.00…..
    Pity there is this cost..it appeared to be a great opportunity…
    Lost me with this discovery….

    Hi Maggie,

    We just wanted to clarify that you only need to pay a registration fee if you want to have a stall at the market. Otherwise, it is free entry to the market!
    We’re also the most affordable market around, and we don’t charge any extra’s for insurance etc.
    We hope you can make it along to the Rummage and experience it for yourself.

    Many thanks,
    Suitcase Rummage
