Hermes alert, alert, alert

In about 25 years of collecting ( cheap) Hermes scarves at thrift stores and bazaars this is the first tine I have had a three Hermes day!!!.

 First up, a pastel peonies  design, 'Les Pivoines' by Christiane Vauzelles , rather the worse for wear with several quite noticeable ink stains. But hey - it was 99 cents and its an Hermes.

 In much better condition, like new, in fact, is 'LeTemps des Marionettes'. I believe this was designed in 1996 by Annie Faivre. This will be coming with me to Europe in October.

Finally, my favorite ' Costumes des Departmens de la Seine Inferieure du Calvados de la Manch et de L'orne'  designed by Zoe Pauwels in 1989. But this is not the exact design that is featured  in the Hermes scarf catalogue.......do you think it might be much earlier????
 Not pristine, but good enough for me.

 Not bad for a days work, eh? I hasten to add this is the first for my collection  in about a year/


  1. A year without a Herm├ęs scarf - you poor thing! ;)
    I have seen such a thing twice in Brocantes here in France and both times they have been over 100 euros.

  2. Great finds! I love the scarf with the costumes printed on it.

  3. Wonderful finds! Hopefully the drought is over and you'll find more.

  4. I would have peed my pants!!! stain on the scarf or not !!!
    I have wanted a Hermes scarf for years, I'm always looking , love the colors on yours also
