or more details.
is a Bolo Tie?
bolo tie, also called a shoestring necklace or simply a bola, can
be thought of as a Western necktie. A bolo tie can range from an inexpensive string
tie to an elaborate and leather affair. Maybe your younger brother had one
of those string ties that he wore with his cowboy hat and cap guns ??!!
bolo has three parts:
- The cord that goes around
the neck is called the lariat. It is traditionally braided from leather, and most
commonly black leather. The lariat can also be made from woven cord, thus the
term string tie.
- The ends of
the lariat are finished off with tips. The tips can be made of , copper or other
metals. They can be machine made tips or hand made tips.
finally we get to the Pièce de résistance which means the focal
point, the best part or feature, the artistic creation for which the other portions
exist ! The slide. The slide is a decorative feature that,
as its name indicates, slides up and down on the lariat. The slide can be worn
up at the neck in the same position as a necktie knot (formal) or down lower for
a more casual effect. Slides can vary as widely as the artists
imagination and can utilize many materials.
is the Bargain Barn?
Our Bargain Barn
is a mixed bag of new and used items. They might come from
inheritances, estate sales, private collections, and store liquidations. We'll
give you as much information as we can, but often the materials, date and origin
Bargain Barn items are sold as described
and are not returnable.
For vintage items
For new items visit our
New Jewelry Store.
of Native American Indian Jewelry and Artifacts
are in the vintage Native American jewelry rescue business and are passionate
about finding new homes for used and vintage jewelry and artifacts. That's why
we purchase Native American pieces from estates, inheritances, collection downsizing
and New Old Stock (NOS) inventory from closed stores.
people contact us after taking a box of Native American jewelry to their local
pawn shop and find that a pawn shop is mainly interested in melt value of the
metals and not in preserving the beautiful historic pieces. To hear that people
have considered selling these treasures for melt value makes us truly sad.
value is usually far below what we would offer for the jewelry. Yet we can't pay
retail price for items because of the time and cost involved in finding new homes
for them. We have to research, often repair and restore the jewelry, photograph
and list each item on our website, and sometimes hold pieces in inventory for
years until the right buyer comes along.
that are not Native American made or that we cannot verify as such go into our
Bargain Barn where you can find some real treasures at low prices.
hope you'll find something special in our vintage shop that will complete yet
another circle of our jewelry re-homing mission.
