Hundreds of Retro Items to Chose From at This Retro Shop
Collecting can be such fun and an adrenalin rush if you find just the thing that you collect!

If you are like me and collect several things, there are several shops that are worth visiting regularly, and the Rocka-Billy's Retro store in Fremantle is one such shop!

I collect salt and pepper shakers, old children's illustrated books, egg cups, egg timers, tea pots, bottle stoppers to name but a few and I have found several treasures at this Fremantle store.

A very small part of my salt and pepper collection

Rocka Billy's is an antique shop with a difference - specialising in 1950's, 60's, & 70's homewares and collectables they have hunted, and continue hunting down a large collection of fun collectable and home decor items to fill their shelves and give you an exciting shopping experience. They also sometimes have a small selection or new/reproduction items.

The store is open Wednesday to Sunday from 10 am to 5 pm, and is located inside the Fremantle Malls Arcade. It is Shop 23 at 27 - 45 William Street, Fremantle and is run by Sian, Shaun and little Billy is there also!

Chose from a great variety of retro gear

They stock all sorts of retro and collectable items and the shop is packed full of delightful items where you can "fossick" around for ages looking for that special something that you collect.

A lot crammed in!

Some of the items they often have in stock include:

Salt and pepper shakers
Ash trays
Old radios
Coffee pots
Coffee sets
Old toys
Old irons
Some reproduction items
And much more!

Fill your walls with retro gear!

On new year's eve of 2014, they decided to take over a quirky little cash only second-hand store, called Rockafella's Retro which was, at the time on Beaufort Street, in Mount Lawley.

In 2016 they re-named the shop to something they can call their own - 'Rocka Billy's Retro' - which was so named after the birth of their son, William who was born on Halloween Day, 2015!

Early this year, in 2017, they moved the store to their Fremantle premises. They source as much of their stock as possible locally and take a lot of pride in an "environmentally conscious approach to all aspects" of their business.

Great retro items for sale!

They have a few very good references from their Facebook page:

"I have ordered a few things by mail interstate. I always have received things within the week. The proprietor is very friendly and helpful and has a passion for retro. She is a pleasure to chat with. I love all my purchases."

Some great stuff in here walking into this store is like going back in time! The people are really lovely too and you can see their passion for 'things of old' ... keeping nostalgia alive for all lovers of vintage"

"I've been driving past this area for three years and I finally stopped and went in the other day. I'm glad I did. It's a great place, well set up. Exciting to look around and see all the treasures. Well priced items as well. Definitely have a look."

And there are more!

I have always found them to be helpful and friendly and it is a shop that I visit every few months.

Check out their Facebook page as they update this with new stock regularly.

Fremantle Malls between Joynt Venture and the Grumpy Sailor Cafe, at Shop 23, 45 Williams Street.
