Feeling nostalgic? Great! You’ve come to the right place. We are passionately dedicated to learning and celebrating our culture and heritage and have put together a vast collection of information that is sure to keep you busy learning for days.
Over the next few years, we will be bombarding our poor server with all of the information, pictures, news, stories and educational information that we have collected over the decades.
We got the idea for RetroWaste back in 2005, when we were selling vintage clothing on eBay under the name simply-vintage-clothing. We would buy loads of vintage clothes in bulk, but we really had no idea how old they were. Sure, you could guess that these pants were from the “seventies,” but we wanted to know specifically.
Well, we did the research and are now passing it along to you.
In addition to vintage clothing, we have deep interests in several other types of collectibles: vinyl records, sports memorabilia, Hollywood memorabilia, vintage cars, vintage video games, vintage toys and vintage musical instruments, to name a few.
Some might call us hoarders, but we always say: it isn’t hoarding if your stuff has good resale value!
You may notice things are broken down by decade. If you’re looking for 1960s cars, then just check out the 1960s section. If you are looking for 1930s movies, then look in the menu under 1930s. You can also use the categories below to find what you are looking for. Also there is a search feature under the menu on every page.
We have done an incredible amount of work to post all of this information, but we are having a blast and have gotten hundreds of supportive emails from students and retro-lovers worldwide. We are so happy to share our love for the past with everyone and look forward to continuing this project years into the future.
We will start with the 1920s and move our way through history chronologically for the most part. Our goal is to one day make RetroWaste the most entertaining and educational vintage online experience. We have an unimaginable amount of work to do, but it is all so worth it.
The stuff you see here are things you might have owned, or found at a thrift store or vintage clothing shop. Nostalgia-lovers rejoice and let’s have some fun!
