I recently discovered Blendo Glass and this set is fabulous - perfect for my upcoming Yellow Party! It was so easy to do business with RetroBabs; she was very efficient, the package arrived in just a few days, and the merchandise was in excellent condition - well wrapped and overall - perfect. Thanks, RetroBabs!

This year's beach week with the GIRLFRIENDS includes some themed nights, and one is Tropical Night! I knew when I found this it would be perfect! Just got it yesterday and it fits great. Can't wait to pull the hair back and add a flower and slip into the perfect sandal. Wait till the GF's see me!!

About

Mother-Daughter team share their love of vintage with you.

Summer 2010,
Bec's outdoor wedding was in the making. Bec constantly sending me to Etsy for items she wanted for the celebration and ceremony. From pearl earrings to custom made slippers, from mason jars to wedding headpieces- I never realized Etsy had so many fabulous items! Once I found out they had VINTAGE -I was hooked. I had always been a collector and loved mid-century modern so I came up with a plan- Babs and Bec could have a shop and share our passion for vintage with the world!
I scour the flea markets, resale shops and estate sales for my "finds" and Bec takes any vintage fabric I find and turns it into new treasures. She uses bark cloth, gingham, old table linens, and makes her fabulous quilts. I add to our REMIX (which is our word for the recycle-upcycle) by making clocks out of vintage plates. Sometimes I throw a few of my own pieces of art into our shop. I am an artist, I paint in watercolors, throw pottery, and make jewelry.
We have met so many great people and fellow artists on Etsy. The journey has been a blast and FYI: the wedding came off without a hitch and Etsy played a creative roll.
Social media has helped us get the word out on RetroBabs, from Twitter to FaceBook, from Tumbler to Pinterest and our very own blog, we try to connect with others who may share our passion. Our blog features our hobby shop, Bab's garden, PROJECTS (which is upcycling and recycling items Babs does for her own home),

Hello and welcome to RetroBabs Vintage & ReMix. We have always had a deep love for items from the past. Here you will find beautiful vintage treasures where we handpicked every individual item with care and love. We are very delighted to share them here on Etsy with you and hope you will love them as much as we do. We believe in recycling and re-purposing items. That is Bec's specialty, she takes old vintage fabric that Babs finds and makes then into quilts, bags, table runners, pillows etc. We think it is true that someones trash can be for someone else a treasure!

Babs here: When I am out hunting for lost treasures I look mostly for vintage items that were made between the 1950's to the late 80's. If you ever have any questions about an item please feel free to ask. I am not
"all -knowing" when it come to vintage items but I will certainly do my best to answer your questions! The art and jewelry I make from the vintage items are of my own creation and whimsy. I hope you enjoy them.

Bec here: I hand make my textile creations from odds and ends and sometimes vintage fabrics. Feel free to Convo either of us for further info.
