R found a large tupperware box at the back of the garage. Chock a' block with vintage scarves that I must have bought at some point. About 350 darlings and I can not remember one of them. They have not seen the light of day for at least 12 years and some still have the thrift store tags (thrift stores have gone up in price quite a bit, I note). A bit damp and a little smelly by now, nevertheless it is like Alladin's cave to me.
Part of the yield is a bunch of Liberty scarves.
Whoops...forgot this one. Even I did not recognize this print.
1950s oblong woven rayon scarves, most likely made in France.
My all time favorites, these old foulards that I generically call Macclesfield
always with a modest colour range and selvedge to 2 sides....more about these at another point.
A fun bunch of 1950s neckerchiefs,very 'Roman Holiday'.
Lots, lots more, so I am busy working my way through them one by one, washing, ironing, and listing in my etsy shop
. They are coming up very well.
I will loose a few, about 10% from either my original mistakes or from storage.
I have a very vague idea there may be another box somewhere as well .....I do hope so.
