I am a bit slow on the uptake, but what is this rummage you speak of? I take it that you are selling all this fabulous stuff (and not hoarding it!) What kind of animal are you!?
Love your little deer and the tapestries...everything...and I will look into this rummage mystery.

bowerbirdz said...

Wow - so much great stuff! I'd love to be rummaging in those suitcases!

laura said...

nick, suitcase rummage is an initiative thought up by two lovely young ladies here in brisbane. every month, collectors, artists and opshopppers take their suitcases to king george square and sell their wares out of them for 5 hours on a sunday. it's been really successful and the vibe is just awesome. check out www.suitcase-rummage.blogspot.com for more info. i do keep a lot of what i find as i'm a collector at heart but rummage feeds my opshopping habit and allows me to share my finds with like minded people..it's a win win situation! x

What fantastic finds! What a great week you have had. I adore the Noritake dish. We got a great Noritake dinner set the other week for $4-!

Steph said...

laura said...

that ship caused a lot of heartache between my friends who all wanted to have it! i blame the guy at chandler markets who sold it to me! :)
