In high school I went on a massive hunt for vintage ties. I was really into crazy quilts at the time and I wanted to make one. Well, it's 15 years later and that hasn't happened. Now that we have a house of our own, I decided to take mercy on my parents and rescue the ties from my mom's sewing closet. It's time they go to fine folks who will love and appreciate them.
Matt and I decided to collaborate and open an etsy shop together devoted solely to vintage ties. He was the creative genius behind the name - Tic Tac Tie - and the banner.
I've learned a few things from my first etsy shop. One lesson is that running a shop is easier if the pricing and shipping details are consistent. So, all the ties are $8. Shipping is free in the U.S. We'll be adding new ties every week to keep the shop fresh.
It is a pretty stunning collection. I'm still in love with tie fabric and design. There's such a wide variety of styles and color. I'm definitely going to enjoy listing these in the shop as much as I hope others enjoy wearing them!
