Our members – more than 50 from across South Africa, the very best – are not in the business of selling serious stocks and sober shares. No, not at all! While the pieces our members offer may have serious value, more than that they are works of art that have their own quirks and personality. They are alive, and they will continue to breath joy and fire long after we have all been around to enjoy them… Indeed, seen in this light, the centuries-old antiques, vintage objects of design, and contemporary works of art of today are mere spring-chickens.
So we felt it was high time that our association – 50 years young in 2013 – shed its serious and dull cloak, slip into skinnies, and embrace it’s youthful jazz. We’ve tweaked our name – now the South African Antique, Art and Design Association – and with the help of Utopia, an up-and-coming creative innovation centre based in Cape Town, we’ve freshened up our look and embraced our swag with a brand-spanking-new logo, image and hip personality.
SAADA – We’re making history!
