Welcome to Coco Collectables… mid-century, vintage, retro & funky
I'm Coco.... I'm a collector/hoarder of all things 50s-80s!
is my PERSONAL collection of pre-loved and AFFORDABLE 20th century items for sale
for you and your home. These items live in my home but I simply have
too many ornaments so it's time to part with some. I'm selling an eclectic mix of stylish vintage stuff (1930s-1950s, including mid-century), retro paraphernalia (60s, 70s and 80s) and anything else I consider to be DESIGN-LED or desirable from a bygone era. it's a place for gift ideas, antiques of the future, investments and missing pieces for your collections. It's a curiosity shop where no two items are ever the same, a unique source for an interior designer or set dresser, and, most importantly, collectables!
Have a rummage round my easy to navigate online boutique - you'll find tasteful, design-conscious vintage and retro glass, jewellery and other accessories, homewares (including pottery, mirrors, vases) and kitchenalia - with an occasional bit of kitsch or shabby-chic thrown in too! No reproductions, just old and unusual objets d'art which I have collected and lived alongside over the years.
All my bits and bobs are 'buy it now' by Paypal (everything includes P&P, for the UK*) and are secondhand original classics and are described to the best of my knowledge (I'm no expert, this is my hobby so feel free to correct me!). Some items may be unique and hard to come by, others may be popular vintage, but all my stylish treasures are within budget and small enough to post (you're welcome to collect in person!). Please bear in mind all items are old so will be in a good used condition unless otherwise stated, any non-manufacturing flaws will be highlighted in the text or photos.
I promote my hoard of goodies through Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest and Instagram…. I've so much stuff lined up from myself and my family that new funky treasures are being added daily!
I also add some of my lower priced vintage/retro items to my personal ebay page, incase you fancy a nose around (some of my website items are also advertised there): My ebay items.
* I've now opened up my website to some of Western Europe where just £4 P&P will be added at checkout. Happy shopping!
Coco, daughter of a London architect, grew up in a design-led household in the 70s. Her particular interests lie in 60s-70s glass (Whitefriars, Scandinavian and Murano) and mid-century furniture design (think Le Corbusier, Eames, Panton). "Only now do I realise the importance of the items we surrounded ourselves by. The clam ashtray by Fletcher, the Boby trollies, our cool brown cord modular Habitat sofa with swirly brown curtains (I didn't understand how understated and stylish they were until recent years), our Bruer dining-room chairs, mum's Mary Quant fashion purchases, the Midwinter pottery, my Sinclair ZX81 and our first Apple Mac… anything that was desirable we seemed to have, and still have - somewhere… Thankfully my dad has hoarded all our retro designer gear. I'm now selling some of my personal collection - smaller vintage and retro collectables which I've bought and hoarded over the years!"
