THE RETIRED GOODS COMPANY

So Much of News!

So, we have some big (and actually a wee bit sad) news to share – Justin and I have decided to move to the UK. We’ve been considering it for some time now, but Covid obviously speeded the decision making process up rather drastically! The plan was to wrap things up with Mint much later in the year, but with us having been stranded in England for the past two months (and most likely, the next two months as well), our plans have kind of gone out the window! When we are eventually able to return to SA, we’ll need all the time we have to wrap things up with our house, and our animals, who will be coming with us on this great adventure!

Mint will remain live until we’re back in SA and are able to tie up all our loose ends, so you can still shop our last remaining sale items until then! There are still a few gems to be had – I can’t believe no one’s nabbed that lovely metal framed bed yet, and we still have some great retro crockery pieces for sale, so it might be worth visiting the shop to see if there’s anything that you’ve missed.

And if you still have your loot sitting in one of our store rooms, don’t stress, we’ll be in touch soon to find a way of getting it to you. You’re also more than welcome to drop us a mail to arrange collection.

That’s it for now, but we’ll be in touch soon soon, I promise!

NB: If you’ve been contemplating treating yourself to an Acapulco chair (or better yet, a bench!) you have until this Wednesday to take advantage of the sale prices. While all of our remaining Mint stock will stay on sale until we shut the site down (such sad words!), the Acapulco series will return to normal, pre-sale prices on Thursday morning – so don’t dilly-dally!

    Wow Kirst that is exciting news! Congrats and just think of all the treasures you will find there!! I’m so jealous. Such exciting news for you although you will be leaving many sad minters behind. Lots of love to you both!

    Gosh, mixed feelings about your news. Happy and excited for you! But also sad. I have so many smaller pieces in my home that I’ve bought from you over the years. I’m sure this was not an easy decision. Mint will definitely be missed.

    Kirsty a new and exciting adventure for you and Justin to embark on. Thinking back over the many years from our first purchase of the two retro carver dining chairs bought from you as you were closing your shop and going back to the corporate world to this time last year.
    Online Mint the Shop and you became an everyday part of Claudine’s and my life, thank you Kirsty for all the many wonderful memories it has given me. Take care of yourselves and enjoy this journey wherever it takes you, love and hugs…….
