Update: Mullumbimby community markets have been cancelled for this Saturday, however, the museum will be still be open.
Well as they say, fashions repeat, but I hadn’t realised that also meant the wearing of knickers.
According to the exhibition, ‘Intimate Apparel’ currently on at the Brunswick Valley Historical Museum in Mullumbimby, before the 1800s no one wore any knickers. And of course that cultural period known to have descended on the area during the 1970s was also well known for its lack of underwear – well lack of any clothing really.
Of course, there is plenty more to find out about our ancestors ‘intimate apparel’ while you visit the museum and its monthly market that will be taking place on Saturday, 20 February from 8am till 2pm.
While there are a great range of stalls in Mullumbimby’s oldest existing market they are also seeking a few new stallholders.
‘We are seeking more stallholders, and especially those that have fresh produce to sell such as farmers/home gardeners who have a glut of vegies and/or fruit and no outlet to sell at,’ said Susan Tsicalas treasurer of Brunswick Valley Historical Society.
‘Also if are you experimenting with new creative works and want to gauge the market for their work, you are most welcome to set up a stall.’
The Mullum Market is the main fundraiser for the Museum and BVHS with a variety of delicious food stalls that will tease your palate and set among beautiful grounds where you can sit under the trees while listening to the free music. There is plenty of delightful local handmade pottery, jewellery, and clothing are for sale as you enjoy the ‘vibe’ of your local market.
If you are interested in setting up a stall at the market call 6684 4367 on Tuesdays and Fridays between 10am and12pm. The museum is also open on market Saturdays between 9am and 1pm (third Saturday of the month).
