Retro Wanted (1960s-1970s)
- February 17, 2015 1:02 pm at 1:02 pm #1063834
I am looking for all things retro, from the 1960s-1970s era. Clothing items (male and female), records (45s and LPs), eight track tapes or film, even news articles from the era.
Is there any place in the area to look for these items? Anyone who has such items please get in touch. Thank you.February 17, 2015 2:11 pm at 2:11 pm #1063841
As far as records in particular, there’s plenty of good used record stores in Columbus –my favorites are Used Kids Records and Spoonful. Used Kids actually has boxes full of overstock that they just give away if the quality isn’t high enough to sell.
A few months back, I saw a ton of 60’s era stuff at “Yesterday’s Treasures” on Long Street near the corner of 20th, but the hours there are very eccentric –you basically just have to call the landlord up and ask him to open it up for you (he also owns the shop –I think it’s more of a hobby than a business). You might also check Flower Child on High –I think that’s the name of that store. It’s near White Castle.
What’s the use case? Are you putting on a play? Decorating a new restaurant?February 17, 2015 4:37 pm at 4:37 pm #1063853
I have to recommend the Boomerang Room in Clintonville, at 3274 N High St. They have clothes, furniture, records and all sorts of nick-knacks from the ’50s-’70s. Across the street is the Antiques Mall which has stalls from all sorts of different dealers, where you never know what you’ll find. Happy hunting!February 17, 2015 5:21 pm at 5:21 pm #1063858
There is a store down in the Short North, I believe it is called Flower Child.February 18, 2015 8:25 pm at 8:25 pm #1064066
