Raise your hand if you can still remember the CorningWare your mom used when you were young (and still owns to this day). Yep — same here. I can also remember the exact shade of shag carpeting in my grandpa’s living room, the way the plastic would squeak on my great-aunt’s sofas, and the faded, 1980s-style mugs my dad used to sip coffee out of.

But I’m sure I’m not alone. Our collective love of all things nostalgia is real. It’s also why vintage-inspired decor is coming back these days in a big way. From ’50s-style toasters to old school mini-fridges, here are 15 products that will turn your kitchen into a retro haven.
