Retro Bazaar was born out of two people’s passion for all things retro and fun.
We had spent many a cold day wandering around fairs delighting in the odd item of retro we found, however it seemed to us that people were selling the occasional piece amongst the older antiques they had – there were no specialists.
So over a nice warming Americano at our favourite coffee shop one winter’s day, we hatched a plan, a grand plan of immense proportions. Admittedly we’ve had to scale back the 3 storey department store of retro, but you never know, one day maybe!
So we hit the internet, learning the intricacies of starting your own business, and eventually found ourselves some premises.
Throughout all this time we were travelling the length and breadth of the country selling at any show that would have us, admittedly some were better than others and problems and hold ups got in the way, (like when the van broke down the first time we used it!)
Move forward to the present day, and we now have changed what we sell from when we first started. We now focus on Vintage technology and specialise in selling Bluetooth converted radios and speakers. Our technology covers anything from vintage telephones to typewriters, microphones to radiograms & record players. We also carry a good supply of bar glass & accessories, vintage furniture plus much more.
We are getting closer to world domination, but it’s going to take a couple more years! Frankly we’re happy to continue selling affordable retro to the masses, just as we are!
We hope you enjoy our website, and if you see us at a show, please do say hi!
