The Gift of Thrift

I love being able to use my thrifting powers for good.  I especially love finding the perfect gift for friends and family.  My younger brother, John, is a physics teacher at a specialized science-focused high school in New Jersey.  His students are required to wear uniforms, so he always likes to wear ties in the school colors of blue and yellow.  Ties are constant in the thrift stores I frequent, so I began looking out for nice, clean ones in shades of blue or yellow.  Well, it only took a month or two to amass quite the collection:

Only the best for my little bro...

8 Thrifted Ties:  $12.50
Shippng to NJ:  $10.20
Having your brother win "Teacher with Best Ties":  Priceless!
