Scarf that started it all: A pink, zebra-stripe silk Vera Neumann with ladybug

Scarf I reach for more than any other: Liberty with peacock pattern and hand-rolled hems in delicous shade of dark green

Scarf that travelled furthest to join my collection: Hermes Groenland from Tracy on Etsy as thethriftingmagpie

Scarves I take camping in the Canadian wilderness - an unnamed large burgundy silk one with hand rolled hems and a fowl/wineskin pattern; large red Hermes-inspired one with hunting theme and plaid accents.

Favourite Scarf to give as gifts - Colourful and unexpected Vera Neumanns

I totally stare in public at - every lady wearing a silk scarf; I have been known to do the full turn in shopping…

I totally stare in public at - every lady wearing a silk scarf; I have been known to do the full turn in shopping malls to get a better look

Scarf tied on my purse: Blue skinny Vera

Most wanted scarf - A Hermes cashmere shawl

Most unexpected place to find a scarf - a store selling vintage glasswares next to an abandoned theatre (found a great Liberty there)

Most of the scarves in my collection are: blue

My favourite thing about a scarf is: the hem! Nothing makes me happier than a plump juicy hem.
I like things that are old, sweet, rustic, charming, have a face, look like something they're not, feel good to hold, or are unintentionally hilarious. I hope to share some of them with you.

I have another Etsy shop, pollypocketplus, where I share my collection of vintage Polly Pockets.

I enjoy baking, eating my baking, eating the baking of others, anything that comes in robin's egg blue, everything to do with cats, Star Wars Battlefront and days without rain.
