On Etsy since 2009

A vintage passion

To better reflect the wider range of antiques & vintage goods we offer, we have changed our name to Relic Antique & Vintage, formerly known as Retro Cookbook.

A little history: This Etsy shop began as Retro Cookbook in 2009 with the intention of only selling extra vintage cookbook from my personal collection, but other vintage items found their way into my shop. In late 2013 I put the shop on hold when after a move to Wisconsin where I focused on my art for several years. The shop re-opened in in 2016 when I began selling items from my own collection, as well as some great pieces from my friend's parents estate. Things grew from there and now the hobby has become a full-time business of selling on Etsy, my antique booth, and from my studio/shop.

Nowadays I am still collecting as well as selling antiques and vintage goodies. It is definitely a passion for me and has probably move beyond just being a hobby. Whether I am reselling something from my own collection, or selling some other cool item I found just for *you*, I love hearing the pleasure these vintage goodies bring to my customers!

Along with this Etsy shop, I also have an antique booth (Relic Antique & Vintage in Booth 67) at School Days Antique Mall in Sturtevant, Wisconsin... just west of Racine, and conveniently located between Milwaukee and Chicago.
