TinTrunk was established by a recovering collector and design historian in 2009 and is based in a leafy Victorian suburb near the city of Manchester, England.
Initially the stock was drawn entirely from her extensive collections, accumulated over many years of enthusiastic hoarding. And there's still more layers of accumulation to mine . . .
Anyway, the realisation dawned that having lots of stuff hidden away in boxes, suitcases and (yes!) tin trunks was rather ridiculous and it was decided that these hidden treasures should be found new homes.
Its still not easy to part with all these things - there's always at least one good reason why they were acquired in the first place, and those reasons don't go away - but its consoling to hear back from contented buyers and know that they are being appreciated and enjoyed.
