Welcome to Retro America
Welcome to Retro America where everything was brand new, fifty years ago!
Retro America is the Bay of Plenty's vintage American store specialising in collectables and clothing. Based in Tauranga Retro America is home to online store Straight Cut Clothing and Unkle Sams selling a wide range of vintage inspired, pin up & rockabilly clothing, hot rod magazines, antiques, collectables and memorabilia from America. While we may be a 'man-cave' mecca, we also have loads for the ladies and a bunch of cool stuff for the little petrol head in your life. At Retro America, you'll find something for everyone.
We could rave on about the unique and wonderful things you can find at Retro America but you can see this for yourself by browsing through our website. We LOVE what we do, and we visit the USA as often as we can to dig around for vintage collectables. How else could we handpick all this kickass gear?!
Our range of eye-catching and intriguing items include original Coca Cola memorabilia, children's toys and vintage diner jukebox remote selectors. Use our antiques as unique decor items, add them to your collection, or start a new collection! Most of our antiques and memorabilia are genuine vintage and antique pieces and are therefore limited in number. Our clothing is usually limited numbers too (except Straight Cut Clothing's Classic range) so we suggest that if you like something, grab it – you may never see another one like it!
Vintage American Antique Collectables
Retro America's online stores Straight Cut Clothing and Unkle Sam's sell American rockabilly and pin up clothing, hot rod magazines, vintage collectables and much more. Our clothing is comprised of genuine pieces from the USA. Our range of antiques are hand selected to ensure genuine American antiques, collectables and memorabilia. We travel to the USA and find each antique and piece of memorabilia based on our love of the 1940's, '50's, '60's and '70's vintage culture and bring them back to NZ for you. You can find items that truly emulate an iconic time and place in history and we're honoured to have you choose Retro America for your vintage and collectable pieces
