wooden neck items

wondering about christmas presents or simply want to know where to buy a like wooden tie ? well here are two places on t’internet i found.
i can’t vouch for the authenticity/safety of buying from these two places over the Internet as i’ve never used them myself. however, you may enjoy just looking at the websites !

flog your old stuff

i’m looking to sell some old theatre programs from the 1930s onwards. i went to charing cross road to see if anyone was interested. cecil court is the street for speciality bookshops.
i found a shop which was full of theatre programs. it was full because he had bought lots and not sold lots. as a result he wasn’t able/willing to buy any more.
he recommended adverts in the back of stage magazine. i also found this site:
