Where can I buy Genuine Vintage Wedding Presents?
Updated: May 10
One of the places where I buy vintage stuff for my home is the yay retro vintage shop. Luckily it’s based online, so anyone can pay a visit and have a browse. If you are looking for genuine Vintage Wedding Presents then it’s really worth taking a look around. yay retro sells all the big named 1960s & 70s brands such as Tupperware and Pyrex and always try to have these in stock. It’s a fabulous shop to regularly visit as the stock is perpetually changing, so there is always something new to see.
Sue who owns and runs yay retro tells me: “I like to sell the very best vintage home & kitchen wares from the 1940s, 50s, 60s & 70s. Lots of people buy items from yay retro to give as gifts. Quite often I’ll be asked to gift-wrap and add a personal message, so I know pieces are given as wedding and engagement gifts as well as for anniversaries and birthdays. I am continually searching for items for the shop and always have a little internal squeal of ‘yay retro!’ when I find something special!
Popular items at the moment are Caddymatic tea dispensers from the 1950/60s, Worcesterware trays and Poole Pottery cheese dishes.
Most genuine vintage wares are much finer and of a better quality than anything mass-produced today, and quite often Sue manages to find items which look barely used, or are completely unused. This happens quite a bit with linen tablecloths, tablemats and napkin sets which can often be found still in their original box. This is probably as they were given as wedding presents in the 60s and 70s and were stored away for best in a sideboard for many years. Back then people did not often write a wedding list and were just given what wedding guests could manage. Anything ‘special’ was often deemed to good to be used everyday, and would only come out for important events and holidays meaning they tended to stay in really good condition. This means they feel extra fabulous now as they have stunning mid century design, and a history, as well as having been looked after.
