Here at Retro Bazaar we specialise in the restoration and refurbishment of vintage technology—including record players, radios, radiograms, typewriters, calculators and telephones.
We restore design classics to their former glory and where possible add a touch of 21st century technology – this includes updating unusable speakers and
radios to ‘active speakers’ where you can play tunes or stream radio
from your MP3 device or phone (iPhone, android & blackberry) This functionality can also be added, where possible, to record players,
radiograms and music centres so you can save your record collection for that special occasion, but listen to music via your iPhone day-to-day.
Originally this speaker would have been extension speakers for vintage valve radios in the 1940s & 50s when audio equipment was in short supply. We have adapted them to connect to any smart phone and allow you to listen to your music or stream radio through them.
A great original portable record player by Regentone from the 1950s - Serviced, Full Working Order
Originally these radios from the 1940s & 50s were controlled by valves all have come to us in non working condition. We have adapted them to connect to any smartphone and allow you to listen to your music or stream radio through them.
We have left the original electronics in a condition where the radio could be easily restored to its original condition if required at a later date.

A great original portable valve record player by Dansette from the 1960s. Full working order, serviced rewired with new stylus
Fabulous pair of restored vintage speaker and radio, converted for MP3 players
We restore our clocks and all are sold in working order. When an original electric movement needs to be replaced we use a modern battery quartz movement with a 'sweep' movement so that the second hand moves smoothly across the face, mimicking the original electric movement of the day.
