Not even five minutes into our thrifting adventure, Dave scurries over in extreme excitement to share something with me. He whispers to me, as to not lead any of the other shoppers onto his find, that there are at least 25 vintage 1930's to 1940's silk men's ties in the tie section. He shows me the five he already had picked out and said he was headed back to look at them again. I followed him to see these treasures for myself.
Gosh was he right!!! They were all so beautiful. Dave picked out a few more including a NOS tie with sales tag intact. He seemed satisfied with this five but I kept egging him on to buy more. At $1.99 each how could you pass on these??!! I managed to talk him into buying the spiderweb tie and the Christmas Yule tie. I decided that seven were also going home with me (to be sold on etsy in the future). The store clerk said that they were brought in by one donor. Crazy right?! We didn't take them all but made sure we took the cream of the crop. I keep telling Dave we need to go back and buy the rest. I'm sure they are all gone by now. 14 out of 25 ain't bad. Behold their beauty.
The following four pictures are Dave's picks.
I love love love the spiderweb tie (it has a fly caught in the web) and Yule tie! So glad I talked him into getting them. I probably would have purchased them for myself regardless.
Merry Xmas message on the back of the Yule tie.
The following are my picks, excluding the middle green tie. That's Dave's as well.
How could you pass on a tie with lions on it!!!
Aside from my two favorite listed above, these were the obvious three I couldn't leave the store without. The middle tie has a desert theme with cacti, butterfly and peacock are to die for. So lovely.
What have been your best finds to date or recent mind blowing finds??
Till' Next Time,
