Introducing Kira from Kommoner Kraft!

Kira is one of our regular Rummagers, and we're so pleased share a few images and words from her!
She'll be at the Rummage on Sunday in Brisbane, so stop by and grab a muffin (or some amazing vegan treat!)

From upcycled jewellery and shirts, to handmade plushies and collages, Kommoner makes a variety of crafty things.  They make a conscious effort to be eco-friendly where possible and ensure that all the materials used are vegan friendly.  Their inspiration comes from their love of animals and comics and they try to have new things in every month.

Kommoner also enjoys baking vegan food and has a passion for animal rights.  As such, whenever you purchase something from Kommoner, 40% goes to Farm Animal Rescue (Australia), a Brisbane animal rescue organisation.  If you want to try making some vegan food, check out their blog.

Introducing one of our Rummagers - Sonja from 'One Little Reason'

The One Little Reason story so far....

Ever since I can remember, I have been drawn to colour and jewellery. About eight months ago my brother-in-law, who is a talented miniature crafter, introduced me to working with resin. From my first pour I was hooked. The glowing colours, the flexibility and the capacity to integrate so many other materials was instantly intoxicating and addictive. So my ideas grew and my number of creations expanded until six months ago One Little Reason was born. 

The name One Little Reason refers to my philosophy that jewellery stores memories, and that each piece we choose to buy and wear has meaning to us. Things catch our eye for a reason, colours can remind us of good or bittersweet times, bring to mind favourite people and places. 

My One Little Reason for crafting resin jewellery? I love making the pictures in my head come to life so they can begin an adventure as part of someone else's story!

Meet Sonja and see more of her lovely creations at Suitcase Rummage in Brisbane this Sunday!
