A blog about the things I make and modify, with occasional thrift purchases that I am especially proud of. Some things I make to hopefully sell, others I just want to show off, but the right price will take anything--shoot me an email if you are interested!

New Ties and Squares

I have finally finished some things, just in time for the season to change and make them all inappropriate. Well, there are a few items for fall/winter, but mostly summery stuff. Bow ties will run you $18 shipped and squares $22, since the edges are all hand-rolled.

The green solid and blue striped are from silk ties, the navy blue from a Citadel tie. The red neat pattern was cut from a silk scarf, along with some of the squares. The pink tie was cut from a polyester tie my brother gave me.

The gingham are from a subtly wavy cotton seersucker, and the blue plaid are a cotton madras.

The pink is a smaller linen up-cycled form some linen pants, the red plaid is cotton madras, and we've just seen the gingham. The red are both from the silk and each have one solid edge.

Here are some shots of the hand-rolled edges.

Things for Sale

I have for some time sold things that I make or find cheaply at thrift stores through this blog. I have decided that this process will be easier if I tag all posts with something available as 'for sale' and then remove the tag when items have sold. This way, I can easily direct someone to the 'for sale' tag on the right hand side, and everything will be easily accessible. I hope you find this helpful.

Upcoming Posts and Selling.

I've been thrifting and eBaying (a bit too much), so I've gotten some nice stuff that I haven't been able to post. I've also made some time for projects, including some Pocket squares with hand-rolled edges and some bow ties, so be on the lookout for those posts.

I'm trying to get rid of some stuff to make room, so If you are looking for camel hair and other sports coats in the 36-40 range, I've probably got something for you. See pics here.

Here are some ties I'm looking to pass on as well, most for a very modest price. Email me if interested:

Finally I listed this pair of sz. 10 Green suede Puma sneakers on eBay.
