TinTrunk was established by Sarah, 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.
