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!

... the Helderberg neighborhood is fabulous for Trick or Treating, maybe too much so. We always see families coming from other parts of Albany by the van load - being dropped off at one end and working their way to the other. Lots of houses in friendly neighborhoods = a packed and good time. It is also rumored that a few adults dress up and roam the streets handing out adult beverages to other adults. Again, just a rumor...
