Tiffany lets the sunshine into first Suitcase Rummage market

ROSEBANK'S Tiffany Sassafras, resplendent in yellow, certainly illuminated the first ever Suitcase Rummage market on the footpath outside the Lismore Gallery on Saturday.

The self-confessed fan of the bright shade said her favourite colour effused energy.

"It's a happy colour that makes you smile,' she said holding bubby Sunny.

And her love for the sun was reflected in her art, which was on display for all who walked by.

Along with Tiffany, Murwillumbah artist Heather Matthew presented a delicious array of banana paper art created by hand from local materials.

Organiser Belinda Suzette from Piggabeen near Tweed said the concept of a suitcase rummage was aimed at entry level entrepreneurs who could set up shop on the footpath for just $25 - and that included insurance.

"There are no marquees, no tables, no electricity," she said. "You just bring what you can carry in three suitcases and set up shop on a picnic rug."

Google 'suitcase rummage' to find out where the next market will be held, but Belinda said it would definitely be held again outside the Lismore Gallery on December 13.

Other markets are held at Coolangatta and Brisbane.
