Vintage & Antiques

Stefan Lategan , the owner of Vintage & Antiques, became my neighbour when we bought the farm near Calitzdorp & started the first SMITSWINKEL in 2010. He was still in school but already an entrepreneur by nature. Selling food & groceries out of the family kitchen to the workers on the farm, helping his mother with farming ostriches and other animals, selling plants and building up old cars with his dad. I don’t know how he fitted schoolwork in too.

I was not surprised when soon after school he came to George and started the very successful Bargain Box! Today he is a very successful business man and I honor him.
