I would've bought most of those (at least the blue and grays). you will make a modest profit on ebay or in B&S.

Etro Cotton tie. As I said earlier, one of the most understated things I've ever seen from Etro.

Should I paypal you now or in the morning?

Astor and black in no good by SF standards, but there is probably profit to be made on ebay.  I would do a little investigating on ebay beforehand though.

Almost always on scarves.
