have been trading for quite a few years now and have recently relocated from their Dianella shop to a fabulous new location; a destination homeshop at 3 Gameson Way, Girrawheen, Western Australia.
You can visit their website or Facebook page
to peruse their current stock. They offer local delivery/pickup and worldwide tracked postal options, but my recommendation is to visit the store in person as it is a visual delight!
Retrorocket is a new breed of shopping experience for a number of reasons:
1. Kylie is the business owner and will welcome you with open arms into her Aladdin's Cave.
2. She is so knowledgeable about all things retro and vintage and will be able to give you the story behind each item you show an interest in, as she has personally sourced all her nostalgic stock.
3. If you are looking for a particular item, they also have a request service and a Facebook page
that puts like-minded collectors and sellers in touch with each other. This is a genius idea as you could be hunting the last cigarette card to complete your collection or looking for a particular size trunk for your latest upcycle project. By joining this group, you will find your items much quicker.
On entering the homeshop, you will be transported to the decades of yesteryear visually and audibly. Enjoy the feast for your eyes whilst listening to tunes from a bygone era.
The store is well thought out with groups of similar items put sympathetically together.
If you are looking for something in particular or looking for inspiration for a gift, you are very likely to find it here with a vast choice of items including bags, furniture, trinkets, jewellery, homewares, kitchenalia (including vintage Tupperware) and crockery, books, toys, games, suitcases, boxes, magazines plus collectable oil cans, lamps etc.
All the interesting items are pre-1990 with the odd exception.
Everything you see is for sale and you will find retro and vintage items from around the world to tempt you.
Make sure you open drawers and cupboards as you never know what you may find!
Kylie rotates stock regularly so you will always find new things that will call out 'buy me!'
The prices are good value with some bargains to be had. I love the cigar case handbag I purchased for just $20.00.
If you are looking for vintage or out-of-print Role Playing Game (RPG) books (think Dungeons and Dragons), then Retrorocket is one of the leading suppliers and are highly acquainted with all things RPG. Click here

Buying vintage is ethically sound and environmentally friendly. The recycling and upcycling movement is more apparent than ever and to create a sustainable future, we must be kind to our Earth and buy more vintage/retro items and join the recycling revolution. So visit Retrorocket and see what items you can give a new home to.
