Further, intricately designed hand-mirrors have also increased by 47%; traditional or old-fashioned bags, gloves, and wallets that feature embroidery on materials like silk and ramie jumped by 304%. In addition to these items, traditional dolls and other handicrafts have gone up by 49%.

More, 1950s styled refrigerators and speakers have also increased.
The hit drama “Mr. Sunshine,” which is set in early 1900s Korea, has become the talk of the town for the story, the products, and historically accurate clothing. As such, some are connecting the show with influencing the growing “new-tro” trend.
An Open Market Auction official said that as the trend develops among younger generations, it has gone beyond clothes and food, but to accessories and small appliances too.
