going somewhere?

Today I spent way too long in the op shops near my house looking for a little tiny suitcase. But I'm not going on a holiday... I just haven't been 100% happy with my market display for all my purses & little things, so I was doing some research online and found this pic (courtesy of Mathilda's Market!)

So I thought, a suitcase! Fabulous! What a wonderful way to display my purses. But suitcases are actually very big, so instead I found a backgammon set. It's missing many of the pieces and was very grubby inside (it looked as if someone had been using it as a lunch-box, ick) so I didn't feel too bad about de-backgammoning it.

I also couldn't resist this wooden bangle... even op shops know to keep the impulse buy goodies on the counter.

So, come Sunday, look out for purses like these displayed in a gorgeous case at Rose Street market!

(Or, if you can't make it, check out my purses on Etsy, or on Madeit).

I think cases are a great idea for markets. I have seen it a few times and it also makes packing up easy too!! I actually still have my very first school case - It has been decoupaged along the way (I think when I was about 18) but I love it to bits.

That is a great idea. Those markets make me want to move to Melbourne! Good luck- you will do well I am sure! x

that's a very clever idea penny! you could make a cover for the set, use a bright carnival like fabric!

your stall is gorgeous i'm sure, you're just a perfectionist aren't you! :)
