Hi, I’m Vintage Dealer Rachel Toy and I have been selling vintage for over 10 years now. My brand, Rachel’s Vintage & Retro was set up in 2014, but I have always been a vintage fan. My first flat was filled with homeware collectables from the 1960s and 70s, just because I didn’t really like what the mainstream home stores had to offer! I started buying at car boot sales with my Mum, then graduated to flea markets and antiques fairs.
I would regularly re-organise my collection and sell items on too. In 2014 I decided to turn my love of vintage into an official business, hence Rachel’s Vintage & Retro was born!
I have a passion for 1960s and 70s kitsch, as well as items from that era that are iconic and show good design. I can be found regularly at car boot sales, vintage fairs, charity shops etc sourcing items that my customers have grown to love me for. You can expect the unusual, the coveted and the hard to find! I really do want my customers to be happy with what they buy, and in the unusual circumstance that they are not, I will sort things out no problem.
Hire me as a blogger!
I also have a career background in web design and marketing, so I hope that shows through in my brand also. If you enjoy my vintage blog I do offer a blog writing service for clients. I just love telling stories and writing about all sorts of subjects. You might just need a one off, or a regular service where I write you a number of posts per month.
