    Deadstock 30s-40s ties from france

    I was just asked by Mr French Can Can if I would be interested in buying a deadstock lot of 30s ties from france. I can't afford them right now so I think somebody else here in the Lounge would like them.

    He will keep two of them so the pack will be 150$ (about 110 euros) for 16 deadstock ties, plus shipping.

    Just send him a mail

    8 Euro (US$10) is pretty expensive for a tie … even for deadstock. You can go to flea markets and buy them all for 10 Euro, max.

    Maybe. Depending on where you live...and if the sellers know what they are selling. But if you look on Ebay UK it is the standard price for single ties and in german shops (specialised in vintage) it is too.

    It took me long to find some ties on fleamarkets here where I live. When I find them they are dirt cheap. That's true.

    Flo is right. All the vintage shops here in Berlin will easily try to charge you 30€ for a vintage tie without missing a beat. And they are few and far between. Thrift shops and flea markets here usually only hold hideous 70's polyester atrocities.

    Sounds like a great price to me. I'm pinching pennies these due to taxes owed, but any other time I'd be all over that deal, pending a peek at all the ties.

    I've never come across I tie I'd be caught dead in for $10. I keep looking for these deals, never seem to find them though apparently they're "everywhere"!

    Sitting here in London, I think those prices are acceptable. Not great, but acceptable. Vintage dealers in London often charge 15 to 20 for a good condition Tootal tie. Down in Brighton they would try to get away for almost the same prices for a poor condition Tootal.
    Even in Glasgow, where dealers suggest there is very little market for good mid-20th Century vintage, nice old ties can be 10 (the days of drunks selling off piles of old clothing at Paddy's market are long gone).
    The UK seems to be filled with people who think they are vintage dealers and that they can charge the top prices they have seen on the internet.
    So to me, the 8 Euro price per tie, isn't too bad.
    But don't tempt me - I don't need any more ties.
    (And remember - even if an old tie is in poor condition, no one will see more than a few inches if you are wearing a waistcoat)

    I usually spend between $20 and $30 on 1920s -30s ties from an American website, so $9 a tie doesn't sound a lot to me... that's why i bought this batch !
    thanks for the link FFF.

    i have never found a decent tie at a flea market. Baron you must know some flea markets i don't.

    Well done. I look forward to seeing full photographs (including close ups of labels and patterns, if possible).

    TT, i never usually post on the tie threads, but as these are French (and i don't think i own any French ties so far) i'll make an exception.
    i will also sell any i'm not keen on on the bay, with a considerable mark-up obviously.
