OUR mission statement

MADE ON THE LEFT was founded in 2008 by independent designers to support Western Australian creative talent. We hold bi-annual handmade craft markets to showcase local designers.

Being on the left hand side of Australia no longer

means you'll be at a disadvantage.

Our aim is to support all creative designers and events showcasing independent labels. MOTL is a not-for-profit, non-partisan organisation. You may wonder why we promote other markets besides MOTL; it’s because it’s not about us, its about you; the buyers and sellers of indie wares. Here at the blog, you’ll discover up to date information about our latest market, the low-down on some of Perth’s emerging talents, other opportunities for artists and designers and a little bit of fun stuff too. It’s all right here… welcome!

Rumble in the Jumble

Rumble in the Jumble is a jumble sale, mini market and fundraiser. 

Sellers, snap up a ‘Jumble Plot’ and trade off your pre-loved goods. Buyers, get down early for a morning coffee and pick up a vintage gem or bargain. There's space for the made-with-love market retailer and a spot for kids to get gluey in the craft corner too! Expect music, snags, coffee and plenty of trawling treasure! 

The event will occur indoors at two large warehouses in Morley, located between Coventry village and the BP station. (Cnr Wellington Road and Walter Rd.)
ll spaces for the swap meet will need to be pre-purchased prior to your arrival. All spaces have been sectioned into 3mx3m spaces.

There are 2 types of stalls available for selling your items.
Jumble Plots are $15.00 for a 3m x 3m space. Plots are for sellers wishing to offload used (but in good condition) items, clothing, furniture and general swap-meet or garage sale style goods. No food, electronics or new items to be sold.

Mini Market Spaces are $35.00 for a 3m x 3m space. These spaces are for small business or hobby retailers looking to sell new products, hand made items or reconditioned vintage wares. This area is best for those retailers looking to sell items at market value prices. All mini market stall holders will require their own public and products liability insurance.
