Where to buy cuff links?

ebay albany flag cuff linksNed asks via Twitter:

Do you have any idea where I could find vintage (and whimsical) cuff links in Albany? I like to hold things before buying.

Our first guess: estate sales -- or vintage shops that collect from them.

Got a suggestion for Ned? Please share!

Albany cuff links: While poking around for this post, we came across this listing for city of Albany flag cuff links on eBay (photo on the right). They're listed by seller family-crests out of the UK. The price: about US $15.37.

hey try somewhere in stuyvesant plaza...the're hoyty toyty enough to have them lol

The antique center in Balston Spa currently has quite a few cuff links in stock, prices are around $10.00 a pair (more or less) and they're mostly typical 1950's-60's styles.

In general I don't have very much luck finding men's jewelry in antique shops- it looks as if most sellers aim solely at women customers. I've had my best luck on Ebay. Look for the trademark Krementz- they were a high quality maker.


I was out looking for something else about 2 weeks ago when I came across a few sets of cufflinks at an antique store at quite reasonable prices. (under $30 a set)

Some of the ones from the 60's were, however, astonishingly large and tacky!

@Eric Thanks.

@treborzelev I am looking for vintage, whimsical and something with character. Yes, I could buy new but that would be cost prohibitive and not something that would have the history that I am looking for. Thanks for the suggestion though.

@komradebob Oh, which one?!?

In Albany: Capital Costume and Vintage at Colonie Center Mall, Metropolis Vintage on Fuller Road.

In Troy: Twilight on 4th St.


The antiques center on Vt Rt9 just west of Bennington.

I thought I saw some at Elissa Hallorans on Lark St. She could probably make you some cool ones!
