AntiqueAppliances.com and Big Chill sell vintage-style refrigerators. AntiqueAppliances.com sells and restores appliances from the era between the 1920s and the 1950s. Big Chill’s refrigerators are retro inspired, but the company's founders have newly designed them since 2001. Customers can select from the inventory of either retailer online, and each company ships the finished product to the buyer’s home.
AntiqueAppliances.com keeps an inventory of unrestored antique refrigerators. Customers must purchase the refrigerators in their current condition. Then, the store offers the additional service of restoring the appliances according to each customer’s specifications. Pricing of the items includes fees for full restoration. Customers can ship their own antique appliance to AntiqueAppliances.com for restoration, as well. As of 2015, shipping is available anywhere in the United States through Vintage Transport. AntiqueAppliances.com offers a shipping quote for any service via its website.
