Storing vintage scarves

A look that I sport A LOT (like, to the point that it’s kind of ridiculous sometimes) is the vintage scarf.  So versatile.  I mostly wear them in my hair



or around my neck {I call this “cowboy style”. And I wonder why people laugh at me….}


but I’ve also been known to wrap it around my waist or just tie it onto my bag. Any way you style it, scarves are fantastic. Why? Because I can slap one onto my head when I’m in a rush and don’t have time to do my hair. Sometimes I put one on my neck because my shirt is wrinkled and I don’t want to iron it (I can feel you judging me…) They’re a really great vintage item to collect because there are usually several to choose from at any thrift store in town, and they’re usually super cheap. Most of mine were a dollar or less!  Needless to say, I’ve acquired many many of these, and now I’m starting to feel bad about just tossing them into my drawer with the rest of my accessories and belts. I should probably be more careful with them as some are pretty old and delicate.  I really need to find a new plan for storage. Any thoughts? I’d like something that keeps them wrinkle-free, so I’m assuming that means hanging them somehow…

rings: I used to work in a retail store that employed this method of hanging their scarves.  It was really easy, but we had to be careful that the plastic rings were really smooth so that the scarves didn’t get snagged as they were pulled through them. {image}


I also worked at a bridal boutique that used a method similar to this.  All of the veils were hung using clips that had hooks on the ends of them so they could hang wherever we needed them in dressing rooms and on rods.  {image}

I guess we’ll have to wait and see what I come up with!

Enjoy your Thursday!
