Oh My God – Where Did the Summer go!

Well summer is long gone, Autumn is in full swing and we are nearly back into the thermals! Brrrr !!!

All is calm here at Retro B headquarters gearing up for the next mad round of shows. We are off to Oxford late November and have three visits to London before the end of the year.

Speakers - for articleWe have some fabulous new stock coming to the shows – from the kitsch (a gorgeous glass standard lamp) to the cool (pair of G-Plan butterfly chairs) plus lots lots more. We will also be bringing a selection of our MP3 converted vintage Speakers & radios , in all shapes and sizes which will make ideal Christmas presents. We also have a great selection of bar stock – soda syphons, ice buckets, Babycham, shot & wine glasses so you can enjoy the festivities in vintage style.
