Yes, the ubiquitous neck tie. The gift of the unimaginative. But this one is a bit different. Available for just $9.99, this tie hales from the 1970s and clearly proclaims the coolness of its wearer. It was manufactured of 100% Dacron polyester (as it should be) by Yallum’s of Kingston, NY–just one hour south of Albany and the country’s first capital. You should certainly consider this for the most discerning of men in your life. $9.99 (minus 20%)
Got a beer lover in the family? This nice old beer crock comes straight from England, where they know all about a nice pint of beer. If your guy loves beer, or collecting old bottles/crocks, then this would make a nice gift for him. Buy him a six pack of his favorite brew, take out one bottle, and replace it with this turn of the century crock. Add a bow and you’re good to go! $26.99 (minus 20%) SOLD 6.4.14
This antique law book would make the perfect gift for a lawyer, lawyer-in-training, lawyer-wanna-be, judge–well, you get the idea. This 1869 edition of the New York Code of Public Instruction (Education Law) comes bound in luscious leather and would also make a great gift for the teacher in your life. $16.99 (minus 20%) SOLD 6.4.14
The nice gentleman who owned this Kodak camera got very nostalgic as we talked about this little beauty. Camera displays have become popular in decorating lately. A trio of these would look handsome on your man’s desk, in his library or man-cave, or in his office. $7.99 (minus 20%)
When I saw this cast iron eagle resting on a table at a sale, I immediately thought of the eagle my dad had hung over our garage at my childhood home. In those days, everyone hung out their flag on patriotic holidays and visited cemeteries to remember their loved ones. Whether to symbolize strength or freedom, eagles hearken back to a simpler time. $9.99 (minus 20%)
I hope you’ve enjoyed visiting my Etsy Shop today. Better yet, I hope I’ve inspired you to dream up some wonderful gifts for the men in your life: your dad, your husband, your father-in-law, or perhaps your son. Dad’s have a tough balancing act (not that moms don’t, too!)–work, house-related duties (repairs, bills, garbage, lawn, whatever), us (their wives), and their children. Let’s honor them for all they do and especially for who they are.
I’ve got loads of other items that you might be interested in. Head on over and take a gander whenever you’ve got the time. And don’t forget to use the 20% off code (dadsday) for your entire purchase of any items you find. Good until June 15. Last day for Father’s Day delivery is June 9th.
Bye for now,
