Weekend Notes' review of Retrorocket

Thanks to Gen Adams for this great article about Retrorocket. I comp'd Gen and Matt a 1950's Kodak camera which was their item of choice.
The experience was very enjoyable and I learnt a lot about the shop's identity through their eyes.

Retrorocket's shop is two years old

As at August 1 2015 we have been in our lovely little shop more than two years.

In 2010 Retrorocket began as an online business via New Enterprise Incentive Scheme (NEIS) selling at the occasional retro fair and regular Balga Friday markets and tailoring product to the market audiences.

We then spent seven months at Wanneroo markets, Wangara where we sold wares ranging from Cathrineholm to Babylon-5 figures to Agatha Christie novels.

In August 2013 we moved to our bricks and mortar shop in Dianella and have been there for over two years.

Most are old and much of what we now do and what I now know is different!
