This site is dedicated to the preservation and ressurection of culture, design, cuisine and other Relics from the Populuxe 50's and early 60's. I am your host, A.V. Phibes and the future of RetroLife.com will hold many mid-century delights from my personal collection of printed materials, as well as tips on buying fabulous retro items and retro recreations for anyone who wants to live a more Retro Life! I'll cover decor, clothing, housewares and other products of interest, and occasionally resurrect some lost recipes to test out on contemporary palates. Thanks for visiting!
