Retro-ware stocks a wide range of collectable mid 20th century glass, ceramics and tableware by well known designers and manufacturers including Whitefriars, Holmegaard, Riihimaki, Midwinter and Poole. We seek out classic original pieces from the 50s, 60s and 70s, objects that fit beautifully into the contemporary home and offer a more individual alternative to the mass produced items you’ll find on the high street. Many of the items we sell elicit a certain amount of playful nostalgia, from brightly coloured Scandinavian vases that conjure up images of cool space age interiors to 60s tableware featuring bold op art designs that evoke memories of childhood Sunday afternoon teas.

The retro antiques and collectables market is a young market. Many items are still relatively undervalued so as well as buying a piece that will look great in your home you could also be investing in something that will grow in value as time passes.

We individually source and reclaim lovely objects from the past. By encouraging people to reuse and enjoy these items we hope that in some small way we are also doing our bit to encourage a more sustainable lifestyle.

So whether you are drawn to 1950s kitsch black and white Homemaker tableware, funky German lava vases or beautiful Scandinavian glass we hope you’ll find something that is affordable and usable to treasure.

Come along and visit us at the vintage fair in Moseley this Saturday.
