Update: When I shared this earlier, I completely forgot about the Thrift Store Challenge happening over at Young House Love today. I love a happy accident! If you are interested in seeing even more thrift store finds, you can check out the challenge here.
Last weekend my girlfriend, Trisha, invited me to go with her to check out a new store opening in Oregon City. Her friends Suzan Clough and Diana Keith own and run Retro Revival which is located in a historic home and is filled with amazing items from the 50’s, 60’s & 70’s. Needless to say, I couldn’t wait to check it out.
Each room is styled in a traditional way and there is seriously cool furnishings everywhere you look. Diana generously allowed me to take photos of some of my favorites to share with you here. So let’s get to the fun stuff shall we.
We entered through the front door of the home and we were immediately greeted by this gorgeous dining table.
The gals have a talent for pulling everything together so that you can truly see how something could work in your home.
There are some really unique lamps and I love the serving bowls.
The end tables are awesome too.
Once we made our way through the living room, we headed to the kitchen. This was Retro Revival’s Grand Opening and they celebrated with what else? Retro snacks. Spam, deviled eggs and celery filled with pimento cheese…. yum!
We opted for coffee that came from a vintage carafe and enjoyed it out of Corningware cups.
We then headed to the three rooms upstairs. One has been turned into a walk-in closet and there are tons of treasures to be found.
All the clothing seemed to be in great condition and ready to wear. And if you’re interested in accessories, there is quite the selection of vintage purses and pill box hats too.
My absolute favorite was this classic muumuu. It instantly reminded me of Mrs. Roper and her bold style. Tyson was glad I didn’t buy it, but you can bet I’ll be checking to see if it’s still there on my next visit.
The next room had more household goodies including this sideboard with a marble top. $65 folks… A total steal! It is in amazing condition and I’m sad we don’t have a place for it in our home.
The Erector Set sitting on top of the sideboard is pretty neat too.
This next photo is specifically for my mom. They have one lone plate of the Corningware pattern we had when I was growing up. (Mom, they have the “new” pattern you bought too.)
I could go on and on for days about everything that I saw.
If you stop by, be sure to also check out Retro Revival’s sister store, Lavendar Hill Cottage. It’s two doors down and filled with equally great, vintage finds.
They have a sweet children’s room upstairs.
And how awesome would it be to have pink accessories in your kitchen?!
I’ll tell you… it’s SO awesome. The Pyrex came home with me and I can’t wait to use it this spring.
Have you discovered a cool new store lately? What is the most unique retro item you’ve found? Anything you’ve regretted not bringing home? I think I could totally rock that muumuu!
