Do you love Retro like we love Retro?

Mint began its life as a real-life shop, selling everything from retro ice-cream scoops to 50s light-fittings and Scandinavian dining room tables, with the idea that everything in our homes should be beautiful and functionality alone is never good enough.

Sadly Mint’s byline ‘The Retired Goods Company’ proved a little too literal, and after 8 short months owner Kirsty Machen was lured back into the corporate world. Despite her new career direction, she continued trawling for treasure in obscure pockets of Durban, and  soon realised that she needed a  a way of passing on some of her collection. And so the online version of Mint was born.
