Retro Chalet, Melmac , Glove Molds, Salvaged Antiques & Collectibles, Living a Vintage Life Podcast, Got Beef ? ®

I'm editor of Melmac Central website and blog, and write articles on Melmac online. I also run the Living a Vintage Life podcast. Retro Chalet is a little seasonal boutique full of an eclectic mix of the treasures I find in my travels. Wife of a BBQ Pitmaster, I get to travel all over, I love anything unique and like to bring old things back to life! From junking at an old farm sale to buying remains of abandoned factories in small rural towns I have a bunch of treasure waiting to share with the world.. I'm also an assemblage artist and I love using old things and giving them new life. So you'll find the rescued, re-purposed, some of my original assemblage.... We own the Got Beef? ® trademarks I own and design using approved manufacturers. I make window props for shops, and when I have time I enjoy collecting and writing about 1950s melmac and run a website dedicated to old plastics, aka "Melmac Central." Thanks for stopping by. Follow me on all social media channels @RetroChalet my latest stuff is on TIkTok
Artist portfolio here: I only ship to the lower 48 states.
