About Us

Retro Thrifter Museum.

We are all about retro & vintage artifacts!  This is an online Retro Store. We seek, collect, repair and sell vintage electronics, games, clothing, furniture and more! These artifacts are being saved from landfills and sad lonely lives where they are unused and under valued. Retro Thrifter has successfully sold online for over a decade.

I truly believe each item we sell is saving the item. When things get thrown in the trash and crushed by construction equipment it saddens me. When I find something at a sale, the side of the road, at a family members or friends house that they no longer want but I know that YOU do! It makes me extremely happy to rescue it and pass it on. I truly love mailing it across the country or overseas to people who will cherish and honor the creative passion it took to make it. As you might be thinking I don’t only sell but also collect. I have some sweet items in my collection and share the love that brought you here to this site. Enjoy and know that I am just like you!
