Scarves: Bringing a bit of Europe to the USA

Recent travels to both Italy and Holland educated me on Europe’s love affair with the scarf. In Italy, kiosks full of scarves are as common as gelato carts and popular with both men and women.  Italian men sported scarves, sun glasses and fabulous shoes as they trekked around town. Scarves for sale were unisex patterns and worn by all.
The Dutch are just as addicted to their scarves! I marveled at both women and men, dressed for work with fashion scarves and fabulous shoes, pedaling their way to work on bicycles. Though not in sidewalk kiosks, scarves were for sale at every clothing shop I visited and worn by many.
I purchased scarves in both countries and wear them often mostly to remind myself of European women and men, who really know how to dress well, mix trendy with classic, and add scarves to complete the outfit. In Europe, the scarf is the “IT” accessory.
So I searched for and found a source for fabulous scarves for Finders Keepers, with very modern and European designs. The summer scarves have been popular and the fall scarves have begun arriving. A current trend for this accessory is the infinity scarf, which is easy to manage and fun to wear. Stop by and try one on.
So far I have just found women’s fashion scarves but I am searching for the male counterpart, even though I’m not sure if our American men are ready for a “fashion” scarf. What do you think?
