I absolutely love Rachel’s shop! Both her little shop and online store are an Aladdin’s Cave of cool, kitsch treasures, all of which are presented so beautifully...and temptingly! Be it a treat for yourself, or a gift for a family member or friend, you’ll more than likely find exactly what you’re looking for amongst the delightful items she stocks.

I have now bought twice from Rachel, and am delighted. The stock is vintage/retro, so all secondhand, but accurately... described, clearly photographed, and very acceptably priced. You can be assured of careful packaging and quick despatch, (so your item arrives in the condition you'd expect from the photos) and Rachel will inform you when she's posted. Have no qualms about buying from this shop, excellent service (regular discount sales, too!) 10/10read more

I recently purchased a lovely set of four (4) vintage Palissy egg cups from Rachel via her shop on ebay. Very quick... dispatch and no delays with the delivery. All of the egg cups are in excellent condition and the parcel was extremely well packed to avoid breakages. Lovely and friendly communications with Rachel via ebay and FB messages plus a cute little card with a lovely message was included in the parcel. Rachel's Vintage & Retro gets top marks from me and is highly recommended! This shop has so many great finds listed for sale and provides excellent customer service, I am sure that I will be a repeat customer! XXread more

The 1950s bought post war optimism to Britain and a boom in innovative designs for the home, from ceramics, to glass, to furniture, gadgets and lighting. What you had in your home began to say something about you, and this was usually aspirational, especially for young working class couples setting up home for the first time. One of these designs was Ridgway’s ‘Homemaker’ which was not only very popular in its time, it still remains so with collectors of today.
