Vintage scarf designs by Vera Neumann — available in vast numbers, at great prices, online

vintage-vera-scarf-flowers-orange-and-yellowYesterday’s breaking news post — 17 reproduction Vintage Vera scarves at Target on April 28th — is exciting. But if the Vintage Vera (lady)bug has bit you, and you don’t want to wait, good news, because there are a vast number and variety of vintage Vera scarves readily available today on Etsy, Ebay and in thrift stores. (We found and feature one etsy seller with 403 Vera Neumann-designed scarves to sell!) We can easily find original real-deal Vera Neumann scarves that are very reasonably priced — in some cases less than the new reissued designs. If you can’t wait to see all 17 designs soon to be available at Target (and gone fast in a sold-out frenzy, we bet) — why not start window shopping the hundreds of vintage patterns that are readily available today? The springy vintage Vera scarf above from Etsy seller CkshopperVintage is $21 including shipping. That’s pretty spot-on the Target reproduction price. Who knows — you might find a vintage scarf that you love for a great price — and avoid fisticuffs at Target, or showing up at the office only to find that you match a coworker.

  1. I still have cloth table napkins with the very same pattern on them as in the first photo. Got them in the 60’s or 70’s!

    Lesson from a woman pushing 70: Don’t ever throw anything away!

    1. Jill says:

      Linda, Thank you for that comment! I just bought a table cloth with that pattern and was wondering if it was a mid-century piece, or a reproduction. I bought it to match a Vera calendar towel from my birth year. So excited to have discovered such a wonderful designer.

  2. Jenny says:

    Love these vibrant scarves, especially the eye popping one with the red flowers. I usually stumble across quite a few of these scarves in charity shops, it’s a pity I didn’t get them when I had the chance!

  3. Diane in CO says:

    I am an admirer of vintage Vera! From my late Mom I have 20 vintage cloth Christmas napkins with holly design. Have a couple of scarves. Recently, at Tuesday Morning, I found 2 sets of (new) Vera placemats which are graphically wonderful: a dark red scalloped mat set with cream polka dots and luscious turquoise mats with white fern design. (Can’t wait for al fresco dining – if we ever get rid of our snow!)

    I went to our Target today just to make sure but no Vera scarves yet.

    Here is a great blog about how to tell vintage Vera from new Vera and the history of the company. Also mentions Tuesday Morning finds. Good information, you will enjoy the read. http://thevintagetraveler.wordpress.com/2011/02/02/vera-neumann-telling-new-from-old/

    Thank you, Kate, for headling my Vera scarf in your lovely editorial!
    Vera designed such beautiful patterns and colors that are inspirational and will always be classic and on-trend modern accessories for any age.

    What valuable assets to the summer vintage wardrobe. I can see a vividly colored Vera scarf paired with a sleeveless short white shift for a ’60’s look. A Lucite pin to hold the scarf, matching earrings and bangles – wow. These scarves are must-haves. Thank you, Kate.
