ABOUT US

About Us

 Retro Palace was founded in February, 2011 with the vision of repurposing, or "upcycling" vintage albums and album covers.  As a music lover who grew up in the era of vinyl, I hated to see even the most ill treated records end up in the garbage.  The solution?  Find new and innovative uses for them! 

We started with hand painted and hand formed bowls made from vinyl records, which left us with a good amount of album covers.  Viola', album cover coasters! We added caddys for the coasters made from records shortly thereafter.  Next came record wall clocks (for those records that were in relatively good shape but whose cover was, well, pretty bad.) On the flipside, covers without records are used for covers for journals and sketchbooks.

All of our products (except the wall clocks) are made from records that are scratched or otherwise unplayable.  No cutting up good stuff here!  In addition, we do not coat or varnish our Album Cover Coaster Sets or journals with any additional chemicals, as we want to maintain 100% recyclability. 

Since inception, we have expanded our product line to include Backstage Bags, Rock Watches and Record Wrist Cuffs. Our Backstage Bag record purses are made using the album cover on one side and the actual album on the other.  The purses are all leather, fully lined, and have 4 interior pockets.  Our Rock Watches and Record Wrist Cuffs are made utilizing both the records and the covers and are covered with a protective coating to help prevent damage. 

In 2015, we changed our branding to more closely reflect our vision and Revinylized Record Art was born. Since then we have expanded our collection to include Ear Wax Record Earrings, Backstage Buckles, Recycled Record Coaster Sets, and Recycled Record Skulls, and much, much more.  We look forward to adding more unique and exciting products in the near future.

Have a look around and we hope to hear from you soon!

Thank you,

Juan Herrera
