Useful, Cost Effective, Hard Wearing Vintage from yay retro!

Buying vintage from the 40s, 50s, 60s, and 70s is all about buying useful things for your kitchen and home. Why buy something new from a supermarket or department store at a high price, when you can buy the real vintage deal at a fraction of the cost? 

I am a bit of a purist when it comes to retro, and prefer the real thing over any contemporary design copies (mentioning no names!) In the past I have bought a retro looking item only to find the glaze scratches or crackles very quickly. Many of the items yay retro! sell are over 40 or 50 years old, and here they are still in lovely condition ready to be be used everyday, and it's because they were designed to be hardwearing.

We advocate buying vintage to actually use in your kitchen and home, 'don't just display - use everyday' is our motto! So we sell cups, saucers, plates, storage tins and jars, mixing bowls, toast racks and preserve pots, tea and coffee pots all of which you can incorporate into your every day routines. Why not pop in for a browse around the yay retro! shop now?

Items shown include a set of vintage plastic storage containers on a shelf in original packaging, a set of flowery tea plates, a teak and glass Wyncraft preserve pot & toast rack and Worcesterware large floral storage tins.
