1950s Tea Time

Why not have a 1950s inspired tea time by shopping with yay retro! ? We have everything you need to get started in our online vintage shop, from Woodsware cups and saucers to vintage 50s trays. Take our Woods Iris blue tea set, lots of families up and down the country had cups and saucers just like these in the the 50s, having only been able to get hold of plain china during the war. Utility-ware was durable, cost effective and matched pretty much anything so people used it for years and years. Cups and saucers like these are part of the UK's national consciousness and are therefore extremely popular with vintage buyers today.  

Why not match a set of Woodsware with a vintage 50s tray for your ideal afternoon break? We even have snazzy 50s style sugar shakers, a way of serving sugar which was all the rage in the USA and gradually became the 'thing' in cafes and homes here too.

At yay retro! we always try to combine postage wherever we can, so feel free to add several items to your shopping basket and we will refund any postage not required once everything is packed ready to send. Or, if you prefer email ahead of ordering for a fixed postage cost & special shop order to pay.
