Selfridges Selection sweets

Selfridges sweeets

We've got a sweet tooth here at Retro To Go (or in other words, send us sweet things!), so it's hardly a surprise that we're tempted by the Selfridges Selection range of sweets.

They're old fashioned style sweets, such as strawberry and creams, sherbet pips, cola cubes and the rhubarbs and custards that are pictured, which are all handmade using traditional methods. Each style of sweets is sold in a retro style bottle, complete with retro Selfridges lettering. Great to give as a present – and probably even better to scoff for yourself. 

The sweets cost £5.09 a jar.

Guerlain’s 1930s-style Rouge Automatique lipstick


Art Deco style looks as glamorous now as it must have done eighty plus years ago. So it's hardly surprising that Guerlain have gone back to that period as inspiration for its new Rouge Automatique lipstick.

The sleek gold case of the lipstick is based upon a 1936 model found in the Guerlain archive. Rather than the usual twist-up lippies, this one has an old-fashioned slide mechanism. The vintage style packaging is combined with modern cosmetic technology and the lipstick promises to be both hydrating and long-lasting. It's available in 25 different shades that are bound to look great upon your Deco-style dressing table

The lipsticks cost £24.50 and is available exclusively at Selfridges.
