Top 10 vintage gadgets for your home

Chris Price Buying guides, What to buy


Walking around the various ‘Christmas in July’ events, including those of John Lewis and Amazon, one of the trends for this year that definitely seems to be emerging is retro styling. In truth, some of the products that these companies are pushing for the forthcoming festive season have been around a little while. But then one of the beauties about vintage looking gadgets is that they are by definition not susceptible to the fickle trends of fashion.

Compact cameras with DSLR-like features have in particular been given a vintage makeover with many of them looking like they should feature in some 1960s spy movie where Russian agents are passing secret papers to each other on a park bench. Then of course there are more gadgety looking stocking fillers including the Yuppie Brick phone from Binatone – a definite antidote to today’s sleek smart phones.

Roberts Radios have been celebrating vintage styling for years now so it’s no surprise to see they’ve extended their Revival range with new mini digital radios while classic brands like Marshall may have brought their speakers features kicking and screaming into the 21st century but the styling remains solidly as it was 50 years ago.
