Vintage Scarves for Summer? Why Not!

Memorial Day is over the kids are getting out of school soon and summer is right around the corner! What about my scarves? Can I wear scarves this summer? Yes, of course you can. Just because the weather has changed does not mean you have to pack away your scarves for the summer.  Get out your sun glasses and long silky colorful scarf.

Scarves work for summer. Have you checked out the latest fashion magazines? If you have, then you know scarves are hot this summer. Here are some great reasons why you need to have many scarves in your wardrobe this season.

  • Great for work – They will keep you warm in that cold conference room or cubicle.
  • Travel – A great way to keep warm on the plane.
  • Las Vegas Vacation – Keep warm in the casino.
You can take a drab out fit and make it pop with a scarf – it can take your outfit from day to evening. Just be creative, and anything is possible. They are really versatile pieces and can really add a lot to an otherwise boring wardrobe. Just think how much money you will save.

One other thing – you want to be unique!!! At Razberry Boutique we have the largest selection of quality vintage scarves and great affordable prices – the best on eBay. We have scarves from the 1940’s through the 1990’s.

We have some of your favorite designers:

■  Vera Neumann   ■  Oscar De La Renta   ■  Liberty of London

■  Diane Von Furstenburgh    ■  Echo     ■  Anne Klein   ■  Paoli

Vintage Echo Scarf

Not all great scarves have a designer name – we have some great trendy designs and bargains from the 1960’s that don’t have that designer label – but don’t let that stop you – a work of fashion art does not need a designer name.

Scarves are not just for around your neck. You can jazz up a pair of jeans, pull a long, colorful scarf sash through the belt holes and tie at the side. You can also use a fun scarf to cinch the waist of a dress. Also, in the 50’s and 60’s scarves were used to hold your ponytail. At Razberry Boutique we have a large selection of these scarves too.

Oh, what about my handbag – you can tie a scarf around your bag adding that splash of color. Just "tie-one-on."

At Razberry Boutique we are dedicated to providing fashionable wear that is as special and unique as the women who wear them. We believe in reducing our environmental impact and recycling by selling vintage items, we all need to reduce our carbon footprint and live a sustainable eco friendly lifestyle.

Vintage Scarves for Mother's Day!!!! Vintage Vera!!

At Razberry Boutique we are getting ready for Mother's Day. We have been traveling around California buying up vintage scarves and over the next week we will be listing over 200 new vintage scarves in our boutique. We just purchased a lot of over 60 Vintage Vera scarves and we are hoping that we will find a few from the late 1940's - 1950's in the bunch.

Feature Designer: We love Vera! Vera Neumann.

Vera Neumann, (1910-1993) is known world wide as “Vera”. She used vivid, bold, brilliant colors, floral patterns and sometimes the ladybug trademark. Her scarves are highly collectable; her designs are still fashionable today - as they never go out of style. Timeless!!!!

Think of Vera as the Martha Stewart of the 1960's. Vera was a pioneer in design who successfully cross-licensed her designs into linens, scarves and sportswear. All of these items sported the distinctive “Vera signature with a ladybug” trademark. From time to time out staff at Razberry Boutique will find a few of these items and list them in our store. If you want to find out more about Vera check out the Vera Company Blog. There is a lot of great information on vintage Vera and the new Vera designs of today:
So if you are looking for that unique gift for your mother - vintage scarves are the way to go. At Razberry Boutique we specialize in one-of-a-kind vintage scarves - over the past few years we can count on our fingers the number of times that we have listed 2 of the same kind.

Vintage scarves are so popular this season we have added a Rewards Program for our customers.

Every buyer gets a MyStoreRewards invitation for cash back

A little bit about Razberry Boutique:
  • We have achieved PowerSeller and Top-rated seller status with a proven track record of both quality and quantity.
  • 100% Feedback.
  • Money Back Guarentee - It is our pledge if that you will receive the exact item that you bid on, in the condition that we have stated.

Vintage Vera for Valentine's Day!

Valentine’s Day is coming up soon and that means spring is just right around the corner. There is still time to buy that special gal that unique gift a vintage scarf from Razberry Boutique.

We have an extensive collection of Vera Scarves .  There is no need to wait for a 7 day auction to end we have listed the majority of our Vera scarves at Buy It Now with Make Me An Offer. So stop by and make me an offer! We have over 30 scarves ranging from the 1950's to the 1970's.  Oh, I forgot to mention shipping is FREE!

Who says that scarves are just for winter?  Here is a Vera sheer scarf with Vera's version of an American Indian Print that will enhance your spring wardrobe.  This scarf measures 15 X 44. 

Below is a mod floral print by Vera.  This one I wanted to keep for my self however, I can't keep them all. This scarf is 100% polyester and can be machined washed.

We also have 3 Vera's that are from the 1950's that are in near mint condition.  We found these in an antique store in the Monterey California area.  

Here is a 1950's Vera hand painted wagon & tulips silk scarf - this was hiding in a scarf drawer for years.   The label is still on the scarf it reads "Scarves by Vera - PAT Pending - Pure Silk Hand Rolled. It has a different feel than most silks - could this be made of parachute silk? Signature is white and is hard to see there is no copyright after Vera's signature. 
Below is a vintage Vera from 1958 a black & white silk scarf made USA.   This scarf also has a label Scarves by Vera - Pure Silk Designed & Hand Screened in the USA  and once again there is no copyright after Vera's signature.

The last scarf we have in our store from the 1950's is this green & white polka dot silk scarf.  We think this signature dates back to 1959.  For more information on Vera's signatures and how to date her scarves you can go to the Vera Company Blog to  help you with dating Vera scarves.

Early in March we are going to have a Vera Blast as I call it.  We have been traveling around the West Coast in search of vintage Vera's.  We have over 100 in or inventory that we will list in our store in March.  We have not set the date yet.  We will keep you posted.
