Retro Design: Mixing Old & New

Retro Staff |  Comments

Exciting results can be accomplished by mixing new and vintage items together in a massive display. In the Retro Planet offices there is a vintage Kellogg’s cereal restaurant display with new and reproduction items mixed in. Below you’ll notice the “Sweet Eatin’ Carnival” metal sign.

Kelloggs’ Display with Signs and Collectible Figures

This is a colorful and fun display, and the same look can be accomplished with a variety of themes.


Use your imagination, and group together whatever your favorite items are.


Is your house or workspace sporting a cool, retro display that frames a couple of newer pieces as well? We’d love to see some pics and hear what you have to say…
