We are trialing the launch with trusted partners - some loyal customers, and some fellow shop owners, but soon we will be opening to more sellers. Do you have a wardrobe you would like to thin out? Join the waiting list here.

How Do I know if an item is part of the Second Love range?


Every Second Love item is denoted by the cute little Second Love badge. When you are looking at the gorgeous goodies on the Cheribomb Retro website, you will see items with the the badge in the upper right hand corner.

How do we age this dress? 
We can age this dress by the ILGWU label that is attached. We know that the womenswear with the blue label and the (r) were manufacturered between 1964 and 1973. The style of this dress indicates it was made in the late 60s 

Founded in 1900, the International Ladies’ Garment Workers’ Union (ILGWU) was a pioneering force in US labor history, championing the rights of women in the garment industry. Despite harsh conditions and low pay, the union provided a platform for collective action, advocating for improved working conditions, fair wages, and gender equality.  Through its efforts, the ILGWU significantly influenced labor standards and worker rights, leaving a lasting legacy in American history.
