A love affair with vintage and retro design

Both me and my Husband Joss have been into visual design and strange humorous curios since we were very little so when we met 10 years ago this was one of the strongest bonds that brought us closer together, searching out funny little illustrations of monsters that would make each other laugh and buying cool bits of vintage homeware together when we got our first place.
I, Cecilia, studied fashion in London, and Joss is an Illustrator and comic book artist. We have always had a love of Mid Century design, Pulp and Kitsch, this fun, childlike humour runs through everything we do together, including sourcing and curating vintage stock for our shop and bringing up our two wonderful children.

We live in a Mid Century home, built in 1969 so luckily all our stock looks amazing on our racks in our home studio! Its such a pleasure to find and restore pieces back to their former glory and put them centre stage so they can shine like they once did when they were new, sending them on to loving homes where they can be appreciated for the lovely things they are for many more years to come, in the meantime we get to enjoy looking at them before they are purchased!

We also live by the idea of reusing existing items and wasting as little as possible but without compromising in style, this can be done if you are committed to searching out timeless, beautifully designed, well made items that were built to last or just silly pieces that make you smile and that reflect a part of your personality, this way they are kept for longer (if not for life) and less new and often badly designed stuff is made and ends up in landfill. We both love the fact that every item has its own story and personal journey behind it, we often sit and wonder who owned it before and what adventures it might have had? Probably sat in a drawer somewhere but you never know!?

We look forward to getting to know some of you over the coming years and hope you can find something you love in our store!!

Many thanks for reading,
Cecilia and Joss x

Hello and a big welcome to Mid Kitsch Cuckoo! We are a husband and wife team who are passionate about the past as well as the future. Thats why we love hunting around for beautiful hand picked vintage pieces that can be loved and reused by you for many years to come!
Great for the environment and also for your pocket as the quality you get when you buy vintage is at a fraction of the price you would pay for the equivalent quality in the shops!
