Handmade Crochet by yay retro!
Hi there, I'm Sue who runs yay retro! I am now selling handmade crocheted items. From intricate crochet blankets and super soft stylish shawls to crochet Granny Square hot water bottles and arty crochet mandalas. With more designs coming soon, you are sure to find something gorgeous for yourself, your home or to give as a meaningful gift. I have been knitting and crocheting for over 30 years and also hold a Fine Art degree from The Winchester School of Art. I think that this background in the arts adds a little *something* to all of the crochet I make and sell.
With the resurgence of Flower Power and Vintage styling, crochet is currently enjoying a massive boom in popularity, I love the look and feel of crochet as it grows in my hands and happily I'm currently crocheting full time. I've made sure that all the yay retro! crochet items are inspirational and usable. Each is unique and a one off based on what colours and styles take my fancy. If you like something it's worth snapping up as I probably won't ever make another the same!
Pre-Order a Crochet Shawl in the Colours You Love
My online vintage shop now has the option of pre-ordering shawls in a variety of designs. Simply buy and get in touch to discuss the colours you would like. I will guide you through your colour choices and together we will come up with something to suit your wardrobe. I have had many customers using this option over the past year, buying shawls for themselves and for their friends and family.
Crochet Shawls to Wear All Year Round!My crochet shawls can be worn as a wrap in Spring and Summer on chilly evenings in place of a cardigan. Then in Autumn and Winter they can be worn as a cowl or scarf. Wear with the point at the back or front to create a variety of looks. Ideal for every day, special occasions, as festival wear or for relaxing inside or outside the home. My shawls are ideal as a treat for you or as a gift for a friend or family member whatever their age!
A Little Bit of Vintage!yay retro originally only sold vintage homewares. You'll notice there are a few pieces left for sale in the shop, and occasionally I will add the odd piece such as a vintage fabric cushion or the odd vintage find. Generally however, I am no longer selling vintagewares and instead am concentrating on funky, stylish crochet.
Buying from yay retro! is So Easy
UK Mainland Postage and Packaging is included in all my prices, this makes it so much simpler to buy the things you'd like.
