Announcement   Welcome to rust2retro!
Search our shop using the word SALE to find what's currently on sale.

We have LOTS of super cool items that we will be adding to our new shop. We will be listing 3 or so NEW items everyday, so stay tuned for some great vintage buys!

We are currently shipping to the US, Canada, UK, Ireland and Australia. If international shipping is not available for an item you are interested in, just convo us & we will look into it for you.

This shop may be fairly new but everything in it is vintage or antique. Etsy considers items vintage if they are over 20 years old and antique if they are over 50 years old. But don’t worry, we don’t judge! We try to keep a good mix of different types of items, but feel free to convo us if you are looking for something in particular.

We refund shipping overages back to our customers!

About

We are 3 family members, in 2 different states that share a love of vintage, antiques and entrepreneurship!

Who is rust2retro? Right now we are three….a mother (Linda) & 2 daughters (Melissa & Sara). But we also have other family members help us out from time to time. And sometimes they add a piece or two to the shop, as well. We come from a family that has been going to auctions since we were little thanks to our amazing father/grandfather. He was a collector of beautiful Victorian glass that instilled a love of all things vintage and antique in each of us!

We just opened our business in March of 2014, but feel like we’ve been training for it for all of our lives! Rust2retro is officially located out of Illinois. We put our first items up for sale on Etsy in June 2014.

Shipping prices

Etsy does it's best to calculate the correct shipping amount, but sometimes things go a little wonky. Don't worry! We always refund shipping overages back to our customers at the time of shipment.
