If it's from a Yard Sale, Does it Count as Proprietary?

March 28th, 2011 at 01:14 pm

Spring fever this past Saturday put me on a short bike ride around the area to a few yard sales. Nothing of interest until the very last few minutes. There on a table in the driveway of a home with a 'For Sale' sign and a somewhat subdued lady was this item.

Tie Case

It was a tie made into a cell phone case. I LOVED it! Of course it appealed to me for being eco, environmental and reusing something. And not leastly for being a crafty thing that might be fun to make.

She only wanted $1 so I snatched it up. Her mom made it and I mentioned (nicely) I might steal the idea for holiday fairs.

There are a wealth of fantastic silk ties in the thrift stores, am I right? What do they run anymore, anyone know?

    Sweet! The wide ones especially. And it could be used for cell phones, MP3 players, coin purses, pill purses, around the neck money belts ... endless variations.

    I recently check a GOOD designer only resale shop and the silk ties were $8-10. I suspect you can do better pricewise at Goodwill or Salvation Army.
