While at Goodwill yesterday I rounded the corner and saw this tie. I knew it was something special. It just screamed "vintage". I have a habit of spying something out of the corner of my eye and then picking it up to see the label.
OH! Van Heusen "Van Cruise" hand painted and original!
A site on ebay notes that these ties are from the 40s and 50s and now sell for about $10. I just love a good vintage surprise! (Please note: I did not buy this tie! Just enjoyed the find! I'm thinking hubs wouldn't be so interested!)
