Why buy new, when you can buy retro china?

This is how yay retro! began.

Like a lot of people we fell in love with all things retro and bought retro looking mugs, cups and saucers for our kitchen from places like John Lewis and Marks & Spencers. This was okay, but it didn't feel quite right.

Then one day we came across a Poole Pottery cheese dish from the 1960s. We fell in love with the proper retro ice green pastel colour, the quality of finish and it's fantastic 1930s design. From then on we started keeping an eye open for more, and eventually found a vintage sky blue set of cups and saucers in Lyme Regis - we were so excited - yay!

yay retro! was born at this moment, the excitement of our finds made us want to track down even more retro china. Now our collection has grown to the extent that our kitchen is completely retro! It feels great to be using real china from the 1940s to 1970s every day instead of replicas or look-a-likes.

We know how hard it is to find really great quality retro items, and the hit and miss nature of the search and the time it takes.

Our mission at yay retro! is to search high and low, up and down the country for retro china and cookware, so that you don't have to.

All of our items are retro, and the real thing. We only buy the best we can find, then hand wash and check every item before packaging them safely ready for you to buy. We do our absolute best to accurately describe any vintage wear we find, so there are no surprises when you receive your parcel.
