Retroda, founded in 2010
After a long career in the fashion industry, retroda was founded in 2010 by Gary Oda, a merchant with a diverse background as a Buyer, Product Developer, and Design Director. After transitioning out of the industry, he started working toward turning a hobby into a business. He began as a seller of home décor from the “Leave It To Beaver” era through the “Partridge Family” years; First at the Long Beach Flea Market, then quickly expanding to multiple dealer spaces in four different antique malls.
Past & Present, established 2015
Past & Present was created with a different approach to vintage. There aren’t any separate booths to peruse, everything is offered by lifestyle and era. There are literally thousands of items to see and new things arrive regularly. The shop is frequented by movie and television set designers, interior decorators, and photographers. Past & Present has become known for elaborate window displays that change frequently based on theme and season.
