Finding Affordable Vintage Style RefrigeratorsPosted: December 6, 2019
At the beginning of my search online for vintage style refrigerators, I thought, “Dang, these things are expensive!”
“$2,000 or even $3,000 and more? For a FRIDGE?”
And, the really nice ones were only available in stores, not online, at stores that were nowhere near me.
So I dug a little deeper. It turns out that you can do better to do the search for “retro refrigerators” on store websites instead of on Google.
Google tends to favor brands that can afford to pay for ads, and those brands can afford it because they charge premium prices for their products.
Do a search for “retro fridge freezer” on Home Depot’s website:
retro fridge freezers at Home Depot
… and you may find a brand or model that you hadn’t heard of before. “Unique” for example!
I wrote an article that introduces a few different cheaper models for retro refrigerators.
Each of the vintage style refrigerators in the article costs below $1,000 and is available to purchase online at major retailers. So, you can get it delivered to your home!
There IS a bit of a trade-off: You’ll have to go with a smaller size and fewer options for the lower price. Such as a maximum storage capacity of about 12 cu. ft., and sometimes only two colors to choose from.
(To paraphrase Henry Ford on his Model T: “You can get it in any color you want, as long as it’s black or red.”)
These few vintage style refrigerators are just a sample of what you can find when you eschew Google and go straight to retailer websites with your search.
I hope this helps. Good luck on your search!
