Retro Respection; a modern online vintage store with the most exceptional service you’ll find – in any era.
From it’s country location in Collie, Western Australia, Retro Respection reaches customers far beyond, posting items out across Australia and internationally.
We sell genuine vintage stock that is personally hunted down, dug up and pulled out from dusty corners by us with serious glee.
Saving memories and the environment one vintage piece at a time is our favourite thing to do!
Mixed in with the vintage are brand new items sourced from all over the world. Our stock is a lot like us - you’ll find a little bit of quirk, pop culture, a little bit of classic and lots of kitsch and vintage vibes.
Our customers are collectors, vintage aficionado’s and those simply looking for ‘something different’ as a gift or to make their home a home.
Providing ‘small town service’ in the online world is really important to us.
We want you to feel valued like we do when we go into our local shops and are greeted by name and with a smiling ‘how are you going today?’
If you ever have a question for us, or a problem with a purchase, don’t be afraid to get in touch (firstname.lastname@example.org). Retro Respection is run by two humans - no robots - and we love to help!
MEET THE LADIES THAT MAKE IT HAPPEN
The partnership behind Retro Respection began as an unexpected friendship in 2013. Storm had begun to experiment selling vintage wares online whilst juggling family commitments (at last count, two children, a stupid number of pets and one lovely husband).
She found herself selling a considerable amount of stock to Joleen, a self-confessed over indulger in the vintage world and a wannabe 1950’s-style stay at home mum (two children, lovely husband, less pets).
Joleen happened to live in the same country town and the pair went on to find themselves bumping heads at local markets as they reached for the same to-die-for vintage plate. And then again, reaching for a vase. Awkward!
The two decided it best to join forces and Retro Respection was born. Now, if only we could get Joleen to stop hiding the best stuff for herself everything would be tickety boo.
