Retro Retailer Week (Tuesday)

Retro Retailer (Tuesday)

What is a Retro Retailer? A “Retro Retailer” is either an online store or actual store that sells vintage, retro, dated, evocative, in period style, nostalgic, old world, old-fashioned,

out-of-date, passe, or period specific merchandise that is either new, original, or old. If you are looking for retro items to spice up your kitchen, office, or wardrobe, this list will help you in finding the item you are looking for and also few items you can’t live without. These stores are not listed in any particular order. If I have not done a personal review of the business listed below I have not done business with them, so please buy at your own risk. Please let me know if you have any issues with anyone listed. I will take immediate action and delete them off the list. (if you have any stores you want to recommend or if you would like me to look at your business please contact me and let me know. You can email me at Skrach@VividlyVintage.com)

ANNOUNCEMENT: I have a ton of merchants that I have lined up for the Retro Retailer’s List. So many in fact that this week, I will be submitting one for every post this week. Maybe more if I am up to it. It will showcase a lot of really awesome web finds, neat-o products, one of a kind items, and some that you may of even had as a child.


MyRetroBaby.com is a “Retro Retailer” that sells retro styled merchandise for your toddler. They have everything you need to “retro-fit” your nursery and toddler with vintage/retro style, from Blankets to Diaper Bags to Wall Art. I don’t have any children at the moment. But I could definitely see myself shopping here for a lot of different things. I love the fact that they carry a bunch of retro styled clothes and accessories for kids. Here are a few products that they have for sale on their website that caught my eye:
