A New Collection.


Vintage state map scarves, because why not? I have a few collections in my life currently, for example owl-related things which are always being given to me as gifts for whatever reason. I have a few sets of antlers/horns and about five elephant figurines, but that's about it. I would expect more from a sentimental vintage enthusiast and daughter of two moderate-former-hoarders. Don't get me wrong, I still have a lot of stuff, but not many collections. I've had this Florida scarf for a few years, and just found the Michigan one at Goodwill the other day. I think that this is an excellent idea for a collection for a few reasons. 1. There are only 50 states, so the collection won't get too huge. 2. Vintage scarves are generally cheap and don't take up too much space. 3. It'll give me something to hunt for when I thrift, which makes it extra fun. 4. I can always resell when I'm finished! What do you guys think? What do you collect? Oh, and if you have any state scarves floating around, I know someone who would love 'em. ;)

  1. I have the ever-growing owl collection too- and now every time someone gives me one it's preceded by "um I don't know if you still like owls, but here ya go!" :) I LOVE the colors of that Florida scarf! I have a Florida on in green and yellow with oranges on it. If I ever stumble on another state I will send it your way!
