Retro Retailer Week (Wednesday)

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out-of-date, passe, or period specific merchandise that is either new, original, or old.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.

Daddy-O’s is an online store that sells old school apparel. They have bowling shirts, jackets, dresses, and shoes. All of which are considered vintage, retro, or rockabilly styled. If you like wearing comfortable button up shirts, these shirts are exactly what you need. They have a wide variety of clothing for men, women and kids. I personally like the bowling shirts and lucky 13 brand clothing. Here are a few examples of the product available for purchase from their website:

We used the navy blue and white striker for this great new bowling shirt. This shirt features a high quality 3 color retro inspired print for “Manny’s Space Pad Diner”.

These flattering jeans should be in every girl’s wardrobe. These adorable jeans are high waisted and cuffed (the cuff is sewn). Features front zip and two pockets in both front and back. The little bit of stretch assures a great fit!

Due to the dark denim color and maintaining this vintage denim look, these jeans have not been pre-washed. Therefore, the blue die may rub off slightly on your undergarments. If you choose, you may wash them in cold water and hang dry to reduce the die transfer. To maintain that stiff vintage dark denim look and avoid shrinkage, it is best to have them dry-cleaned.
