Before the existence of re-sale shops, people collected vintage items by rummaging through their grandparents' attic and dumpsters behind ancient pyramids. Collect camp without pillaging timeworn trash with today's Groupon: for $15, you get $30 worth of vintage clothing, jewelry, and more at Retrohome.
Retrohome, featured in Vintage Around Town 2011's Best Vintage and Antique Shopping guide, satiates proudly kitsch-minded purchasers with a panoply of vintage wares ranging from attire to décor. Meander through the labyrinthine aisles of anomalous goodies to find a top that defies cookie-cutter dernier cri or a top hat that helps battle rabbit homelessness (clothing, hats, and accessories start at $10). Vintage and handmade jewelry ($5+) add pizzazz to appendages, while classic furniture ($30+) transports living spaces into a time when women wore bonnets and men waltzed with vacuum cleaners. In addition, Retrohome mends old jewelry and beadwork back to sparkling shape and restores senescent furniture.
Vintage Around Town Guide named Retrohome one of Austin's Best Vintage and Antique Shopping locations.
