 oh, and me! Merry-Go-Round handmade :)

I love to upcycle and give a new life to something that had an intended previous use.
For example, some of my tea towels are brand new but many are retro vintage - that is 20-40 years old! They are in excellent condition as they have never been used for their original purpose.

Metro Retro Aprons are all OOAK - that is, One Of A Kind.
Each one is never to be repeated, never to be exactly the same as another.
All of these aprons are handcrafted originals and unique!
The ideal handmade gift for someone special or for spoiling yourself.

Metro Retro Aprons....Fun & Funky Designs - Expect the unexpected!
Vintage, Retro Design with Modern & Practical Use.
Unique, One Of A Kind - just like you!  One Size Fits Most.
Most of my Metro Retro aprons have a 100% linen tea towel front panel and the side panels,
straps & binding are vintage cotton - usually 100% Cotton.
