Welcome to Lamp & Motor. I source vintage and recycled fabrics to create beautiful bags. My sources of inspiration are varied and I find some of the most stunning fabrics in the most unlikely places. Please feel free to add your comments, tell me what you like or don't like. And, if you are really interested in having your very own Lamp & Motor vintage or kitsch creation contact me and we'll talk turkey, email lampandmotor@live.com.au

Lamp & Motor does YDM South Bank

Busy, busy weekend for Lamp & Motor what with the Brush with the Law markets in Bulimba and the Young Designers Market at South Bank on Sunday. Sunday was just fabulous, lots of sales, beautiful weather, happy people. Really inspiring and can't wait to try for the November markets (and December if they'll have me!).

I had the pleasure of meeting artist and jeweller Liana Kabel of the Tupperware jewellery fame. She has a studio at the Museum of Brisbane and creates wonderful works, such as earrings, bangles, necklaces, brooches and rings out of old knitting needles, tape measures, other recycled plastics and vintage buttons. 'How does she do it', you ask? Well I think it may be her little secret...for more gorgeous Liana Kabel check out her website http://www.lianakabel.com/ and her Etsy store to buy online.
