Unique items for Unique People!

What started out as a simple experiment into rainbow hat crafting has slowly expanded into a bubbly, disco funk bonanza.

Fast forward a few years and we've gone from a single table selling hats at Glebe market to stalls at major festivals all over Australia... and boy! We've come a long way!

In the last year Bobs Buckets has been spreading Rainbow funk high and low across the country. From Strawberry Fields to Beyond The Valley, Laneway, Mountain Sounds Festival and even Rabbits Eat Lettuce.

So how did we end up in the festival scene? (Besides a love for festivals, of course...)

Well, we realised that our awesome retro funky goods just aren't for everyone. Only the true lizard kings and queens can handle the epitome of weird wear that we provide. And where do these uniquely strange individuals congregate? FESTIVALS! As we have spread our seed far and wide across this pineal plane of existence we have continued to expand our range to meet the many varied needs of the festival goer - some they may not even realise they had! 


Our goal is to have everything and anything you need for a festival, while keeping all our items as unique as possible! We strive to provide Unique items for Unique People! Plus funky disco tunes, bubbles and good times!

Our expansion into groovy goods begun with our discovery of local legends FROTHLYF, whose psychedelic eyewear has added a new dimension to our online and festival stores, and perfectly complements our rainbow existence. But the more we scour the festival scene the more awesomely unique local brands and items we discover. So we are now on a quest to bring you the finest selection of local brands to bring you everything you need for a festival, in only the funkiest styles possible!

Added to this, in just the last few months we've added these homegrown beauties to the line up: Rowdy Fans, Bummy Bumbags, Seadragon Holographic clothing and That New Label psychedelic printed leggings and crops, as well as a carefully curated selection of Bob's personal festival favourites like kimonos, parasolssunglasses, dance fans, and all new range of funky buckets to meet a wider range of punters.
