NEW TCHIBO TCM RANGE from Germany in stock

Some of you might have already discovered that we have another addition in our shop: The german Tchibo TCM range!

I am really happy that I can offer you those products. From "back home" I know that they have really nice quality products at great value.

What is it all about?
The Tchibo Company started out as a Coffee Roasting Company in 1949 and became very well known for their good quality.
"In the early 1970s, Tchibo started expanding its offerings to include a few choice consumer goods. Today, each week Tchibo offers its customers a new selection of roughly 30 products based on a common theme, under the heading “A new experience every week.”  Their own label TCM (Tchibo Certified Merchandise) was born and proofed to be very successful and nowadays Tchibo sells its quality goods through over a thousand branches throughout Europe. Besides their brick and mortar shops they also offer their items in their very attractive online-shop.

We at freshly crafted are not an official franchise but we are lucky that we can now order the TCM products once a month.
I am fully aware that we yet do not stock the full range but be assured that we will add and grow continually with your feedback!
As those products are very different to our existing portfolio we launched on a small scale and we would like to hear your feedback!

Also what you would like us to focus on e.g. kitchen, kids, ladies, men or ???

To keep you informed about new arrivals we have got a list in the shop for you to leave your name and contact details and we will keep you informed once we receive new stock.

You can find us at the Oakhurst Farm Park. For all of you outside Hout Bay: this is the little shopping Center with KWIK Spar and Scarecrows family restaurant on MainRoad Hout Bay -heading towards Constantia Nek on the right hand side.

Our opening hours are daily 9am - 5pm

We are looking forward to welcome you soon!
