Early on in gathering her necktie collection, Linda cut up one of her favorite colored ties to make a yoyo.

The above yoyos were made with cotton and a button in the middle.

 

Later, she found out it was a Beatles tie!  At the time the Beatles ties were not classified as vintage (not quite twenty years old).  She later saw on the internet that the tie she paid $1 for was worth $25.  She then started looking up vintage ties on etsy, ebay, and other internet sites.  Many of her ties looked a lot like those labeled “vintage.”  Linda has since then included some vintage ties in her vintage shop.  Her Beatles tie collection has since expanded.  She also has a collection of J.Garcia ties, Christmas ties, cartoon character ties, and designer brand ties.
