Every story has a beginning, and while we are dialed in on cementing our place in the future, sometimes it’s nice to think about how we started.
It was the onset of something terrible – the COVID-19 pandemic – that was a catalyst for the birth of something amazing. As businesses shut down and we spent more time at home, John ramped up the buying and selling of his collection on e-Bay as a research and development opportunity for his next entrepreneurial venture – one where business and passion were unequivocally intertwined – what is now known as Breaks After DarkTM. The collection grew, and the following more rapidly than that, which paved the way for a real market disruptor – live shows and group auctions, several times per week, accessible right from your phone. The show became more robust into a full-scale, live studio production, with more breakers joining our team. This online venture expanded into brick-and-mortar – Mintink’s first location in Vaughan – and shortly after, the ultimate, unique, collector’s experience in Toronto known as the Mintink Gallery (with more locations, coming soon).
