Retro-Redheads Featuring Vintage Style Linens, Housewares and Home Accessories

Introducing Retro-Redheads
An On-Line Store For Retro Collectors

Retro Redheads is a kitchen and home on-line store that sells both originals and reproduction textiles, glassware, housewares, pottery, cookware and more. Barbara and her daughter run Retro-Redheads and are well known among "the trade".

This afternoon I chatted with Barb about all the new items she was now carrying in her on-line store. Over the years she been ordering more and more "vintage style" linens and accessories and integrating them with her originals (she is a hunter-collector just like the rest of us).

Textiles that Look Like Originals

I wondered how her long established customers felt about her carrying "repros". She said she sells a lot of "vintage style" and her customers are buying more and more.

Companies That Sell Vintage Style Home Accessories

Bethany Lowe
Dolce Mia

Many of the kitchenwares and textiles she has in her inventory come from very fine design houses such as Moda Home (, Bethany Lowe designs ( and Dolce Mia Designs (

According to Barbara, the quality of the retro inspired lines she carries is excellent. She herself uses many of these textiles and decorative accessories in her own home and is delighted with the durability.

I have to admit, the tablecloths, towels and napkins look fabulous. It is really hard to tell these newly manufactured pieces from their 1940 and 1950 cousins.
