Second Love is a peer to peer platform consisting of a  curated range of samples, seconds, deadstock and gently used well known retro brand names such as Hell Bunny, Collectif, Tatyana, Unique Vintage - and so many more in the waiting wings!

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.

This item is a true vintage item from the 50s. She is a truely rare find, however being over 70 years old, she does have some faint pilling, and tiny flaws that you.  would expect in a preloved garment, let alone a vintage treasure.

Calling all Jackie Kennedy enthusiasts! We do extensive research on all of the items we have in store, and when this one crossed our paths we were besotted. Up for grabs is a 1950s frock coat in nearly perfect condition. We believe it was commissioned for a store called Stacey, and the high end label Junior-Aire fulfilled it. 

Junior-Aire clothed many celebrities and models in the 1960s, and the style icon herself, the late great Jackie Kennedy. 

Back to the coat: peter pa collar, double breasted with original buttons, a slim bodice into the skirt itself. Made of a sturdy material, the in tact union labels belie it's age. We see a lot of vintage pass through out hands and this is honestly the best of the best. 

We estimate this girl to have been made in the late 50s:

This vintage frock coat was expertly crafted with an ILGWU label, indicating it was union-made between 1955-1963. Additionally, the National Coat & Suit Label, used from 1938 to the late 60s, places this piece in the late 50s. The 3/4 sleeves and large Peter Pan collar were also popular trends during this time period.

Own the most stylish piece of history going! If I were a size 8 instead of a size 14, I would never let this girl go.

We estimate this lady is a size 8 Australian.

Bust: 86cm
