Item of the Day: Tin Town Decor

We love these custom made steel objects from Tin Town for their simple, practical and whimsical decor feel. Tin Town is the brain child of two former advertising creatives, André Serfontein and Magdel van der Walt, who grew tired of the demanding schedule of the advertising industry. Looking for a more inspirational lifestyle, they decided to create ‘their own fate’, and moved their offices into a tiny garage in Cape Town. With heaps of advertising experience in the bag, André and Magdel saw a gap in the market and decided to create a company which would custom-make practical decor aluminium objects for any need. Tin Town crafts stunning products, such as modern bookmarks, stylish jewellery holders, pretty cake stands, candle holders, key-rings, gorgeous pendants and anything else customers may require. The products are mostly custom made and order take 3-4 weeks to complete. André and Magdel boast that ‘We love what we do and we hope this always shows in the end result – and that when you take one of our pieces home it will give you as much pleasure as we had in creating it.’ Contact Tin Town on 021-426-2226, info@tintown.co.za or visit them at tintown.co.za Text: Tiisetso Skosana
