Ever since J² Terrarium started, we have been actively looking for a platform to showcase our terrariums in Brisbane, Queensland. Plenty of options were put on the table, from markets, shop lots, spaces in malls and one caught our attention! Suitcase Rummage at Brisbane city! Its lovely to see the quiet side of the city being turned into a hippie bazaar on a Sunday. And for the first time, J² Terrarium decided to embark its journey to officially make terrariums available for people who would love to share the same passion and love for plants.
In order to start selling terrariums while being a full time student, we decided not to overcommit ourselves and to start up this business at a comfortable pace. So, we figured that Suitcase Rummage will be the most appropriate step to start with! Suitcase Rummage is a small scaled market, simple and yet interesting where you will find many people setting up a mini “stall” with a piece of cloth. As the name suggest, you may bring up to 3 suitcases filled with your goods to sell at Suitcase Rummage! So we thought this would be a good place to start, to test our terrariums on the market! All we need to do is to book our slots for the Sundays, get a pretty mat, and our terrariums!
To our surprise, our terrariums did really well and we’re always anticipating our next Suitcase Rummage every time we finished a rummage! Truth be told, selling terrariums was always fun, but meeting like minded people and making friends is even better! You will be able to see the great amount of creativeness among stall holders, and guess what, you might be able to get a swap of goods with other friendly stall holders once in a while! In just a simple market, you will get to see all kinds of things sold, all different stuffs every Suitcase Rummage! From antiques, childhood toys, branded goods to stunning handmade crafts, you will always feel luckier when you search around and found something to resonate your childhood dreams! Trust me, I have bought so many toy figures more than anybody to put in my terrariums, and guess what, to a point where the stall holder actually looked for me to pass me more figurines, FOR FREE!
So guys, keep a look out at J² Terrarium’s upcoming event! Stop by Suitcase Rummage when you decide to take a stroll to Brisbane City, say Hi, I’m sure we will be happy to have a chat! *Jason really loves to talk, when its about plants and nature!
