~ "Ziegfield Follies Of 1934"


~Years ago, my husband and I came across some wonderful Calendar Art that was being stored in our barn. Turns out, my husbands grandfather was a calendar salesman back in the 1940's. These beautiful prints were used as samples for ordering calendars. Scenery, nature, animals, children, comical scenes and, of course, the pinup girl graced the calendars of the day. Most of these prints are in great condition and are as vibrant as the day they were made (they hadn't seen the light of day in fifty plus years). Enjoy and come back often, I'll be listing additional prints in the future.~

~All my Art Calendar prints and Hand Tinted Photo Prints are original prints, not reproductions.~

~I try my best to describe, with words and photographs, the condition of these prints. Remember that these prints are original and are not in 'new' condition. Again, they are not reproductions. Feel free to contact me with any questions.~

~I do not offer bulk rates or discounts on my Calendar Art.~

~All prints are mailed flat (unless stated otherwise) in a USPS Priority Mail envelope between two pieces of cardboard to prevent bending. Insurance is included in shipping price.~

~The Vintage section of my shop began because I love cool Retro stuff. I believe that there is a home for every wonderful Retro find that I come across. I love when I can match up an item ( I can't keep them all) with it's new deserving owner. Stories I hear from customers, for example, being able to replace a long broken Relish Dish or, as in a sale of a print, the Artist just happens to be their Grandfather, warms my heart and makes this endeavor worthwhile. As also with my Prints, I try to be accurate in the description and photographs. I also love to add a little History in the description if I can. Or, I'll add a beautiful poem, humorous quote or relevant lyric because it's fun and it's my shop, I can do what I want. Wonderful Retro finds! A nice, eclectic mish-mash of Vintage things that may put a smile on your face.~

About

Redford Retro

I like to believe that Redford Retro began seventy years ago...give or take a few years....when my husband's Grandfather decided to become a Calendar Salesman. The prints that you see in Redford Retro shop are original Calendar Art prints that were left by him, possibly, to be discovered and treasured and enjoyed....
With every print that I have catalogued, I am amazed at the quality that these beautiful prints have maintained over the years. Although there are a few that didn't fare well, most of the prints are in Perfect condition. The colors have remained vivid and bright and the content ranging from comical to glamorous to scenic wonder and floral beauty are a true mirror into the lives of past generations.
Please be sure to read the description and print size so you know exactly what you're ordering. I try to describe each print I list the best I can and list with untouched photographs.

The Vintage section of my shop began because I love cool Retro stuff. I believe that there is a home for every wonderful Retro find that I come across. I love when I can match up an item ( I can't keep them all) with it's new deserving owner. Stories I hear from customers, for example, being able to replace a long broken Relish Dish or, as in a sale of a print, the Artist just happens to be their Grandfather, warms my heart and makes this endeavour worthwhile. As also with my Prints, I try to be accurate in the description and photographs. I do my research to try to give you a clearer idea of what you are about to purchase at a fair market value price. I'm not an expert, just a person that loves everything retro. I also love history and try to add a little History in the description if I can. Or, I'll add a beautiful poem, humorous quote or relevant lyric because it's fun and it's my shop, I can do what I want. Wonderful, eclectic Retro finds!

Oh...and my full time job is my Redford Glass Studio. You can find some of my Stained Glass and Mosaic creations and a collection of Kiln Molds and Glass Supplies here.....at Etsy. Thanks for visiting!
