Our Story

pittsburgh vintage storeRetro on 8th is a brick and mortar store located in the 
Historic Homestead district of Pittsburgh, PA. Proprietors 
Jennifer Horovitz and Hayley Kile have been collecting 
mid century modern furniture and collectibles together for
 over ten years. It began with a true love of the design, the 
surprises that modernism provides, the function and the beauty.

That delight endures and hopefully is evident in both our store
and our website. We really enjoy creating a unique space in 
our store and have received many compliments about the way 
we arrange and group pieces to create room set-ups. We have 
hosted photo shoots, live music events and have rented 
merchandise to theater and movie organizations. We have 
heard repeatedly from customers that our store is move-in 
ready and that is exactly what they want to do!

Who We Are

Both Jennifer and Hayley are products of 70′s music, pop 
art, media and consumerism. We relish our childhoods 
and enjoy passing on our memories of Big Wheels, transistor
radios, Kiss, Kool-Aid, Wacky Packs and baseball cards that 
actually came with gum, skateboards, watching Saturday 
Morning Cartoons and American Bandstand on a shag rug, 
and creating worlds out of Knoll modular furniture.

It is our love of the design, the research, the way of life of 
the 50′s thru the 70′s that feeds our obsession with modernism. 
Of course the items on this website are only a small representation 
of our inventory. We have games, toys, albums and 8 tracks, 
vintage clothing and accessories and much more. To give you an idea of some of the pieces we had in the past please look at our Sold Items. We don’t mind questions, what are you looking for? Thanks for checking us out.
