Who doesn’t love shopping for great vintage items?
It’s fair to say I have a retro addiction. It’s always been my love and favourite past time, to visit markets and opportunity shops - finding treasures! Enjoying the rush that comes when getting super excited every time I find that special piece.
In 2013 after many years of collecting – and running out of space to store all my beloved treasures – my patient partner Mark suggested we start a business. And 'Retro Addiction' was born, becoming Auckland’s newest retro and vintage specialty shop.
Initially operating out of our garage, we soon ran out of space, so the business was moved into a 100 square metre storage space. Today, you’ll find us in a fantastically retro, 160 square metre retail shop at 849 New North Rd, Mt. Albert in Auckland.
It’s fair to say that our store has kept expanding to keep up with our love of finding great retro and vintage treasures – and with the new community of retro lovers we’ve been able to build. And rest assured, we still travel New Zealand looking for the very best items to fill our shop (and website).
If you share our love of retro, vintage, deco and all things old, quirky and cool, please feel free to pop in for a browse, a trip down memory lane or to find something special.
We pride ourselves on being able to source amazing things for you while keeping items reasonably priced. If you are looking for something particular we can find it for you, or if you have items you would like to sell, we buy stuff too.
We hope to meet you soon.
