Today we sell thousands of cool reproduction products, but our roots lie in the sales of vintage originals. We still shop estate sales, flea markets, eBay and antique stores to add to our ever expanding collection and to decorate the Retro Planet world headquarters. The Vintage Finds section of our blog highlights some of the cool and unusual stuff we find. Most of these items are not for sale but occasionally some may be available to buy in the Vintage Originals section of Retroplanet.com. Many items there are new old stock (NOS) and some are one-of-a-kind, so check them out regularly if you’re looking for great vintage finds.
