Nothing serious

nieko rimto003

“Nieko rimto” which in Lithuanian means nothing serious is a wonderful publishing house in Lithuania making beautiful books and lovely stationery. And I was contacted to draw few postcards.

Here they are:

They also made some souvenirs like magnets, paper for letters.

And since then my friends and family members sent me lots of pictures of those cards in the bookshops, book fair, etc. Thanks!

I made some bookmarks as a gift when someone buys something fro my shop or to use as business card. When I came up with this idea I said to myself – oh you are genius! Ha ha. So there they are – cut yourself an animal bookmarks.


Markets markets markets

Some friends asked me about the markets I go to. So this post is about it – the art, craft, design and other things markets in Australia. I should probably post about my markets back in Lithuania or UK, but maybe someday later, if I find nice pictures. Follow the links (underlined text) to see more.


This is a nostalgic and precious picture for me – with my first friend in Australia – Sarah. Now we live in different ends of this continent and I miss her. This was first market I went to, sharing a table in those days was the only thing we could afford, ha ha. Ok ok, we shared it because it was just more fun. That was a market in Espionage gallery, Adelaide. I met Fruzsi here as well. And then little by little started to meet other people with whom we still keep in touch.


I even can’t remember the name of this market in Adelaide. It was in the city center, just off the Rundle street. I rode my bike to this market with all my things! I didn’t have a lot of stuff. And I got this beautiful cloth in garage sale.



With another friend Kara in a local community market. Market was so tiny, but fun.


Then it was West End Christmas market. A bigger one and I got a bit more stuff…


and it was raining so badly 😀


And then first Rose street market in Melbourne with Louise.


And then we made it to the Finders Keepers in Melbourne with Antra.


I couldn’t find pictures from North Melbourne market, only this one, I took it because the girl in the middle looked like Reda, sadly it wasn’t her… Next time I go there, I’ll take some pictures of the building and people.


Oh! I just found some pics in my instagram. Yeah, look for #lukava there!


This picture is just because of some order and chronology, I try to mention all the markets. Fine Design market in some suburb. Sunny and windy. There was also Southside market in St.Kilda, I have no pictures.


In winter I tried to stay in markets somewhere inside like Rose st. market.


It’s in an old tin shed or storage, very Melbournian vibe.


And then I traveled to Sydney.

Amazing building. It used to be a train locomotives repair factory.


And then to Brisbane. Hot and wet.


Also in a historic building.



Ant this was North Market in Brunswick.


With a n Ukulele band playing live.


South Melbourne Night (well, evening) market in the summer.


And the last one, just few weekends ago – a rainy day at the Esplanade market in St.Kilda. It is a little bit oldschool but it is so close to our home. But the winds from the sea are almost unbearable but it is always interesting to try something else and to go to all those different markets. Note the table cloth 🙂

I don’t take so many pictures of my stuff in the markets anymore, but now I think it could be great to look at them. I can see how the range of products has changed and the way I show them. I can revisit those places I’ve traveled and remember some lovely people I met. Hope it was interesting for you. Just a bit, a tiny bit.

I’ll post about upcoming markets in Melbourne, Brisbane, Adelaide and Sydney here.
