Fighting mundanity, one tie at a time! Tacky Ties and Things is a husband-and-wife owned business specializing in thoughtful and provocative artwork on novelty items people use every day. As lifelong scholars of history, literature, and politics, we believe that art should be beautiful and push boundaries while promoting the best of the past.
Remember: those who forget the past are doomed to repeat it. And Shakespeare really knew how to phrase an insult.
Our twisted images are based on fantasy, historical, and literary references. Many of our artistic tacky ties and other things contain quotes, humor, snarky and sassy sayings to make the world a more interesting, less mundane place. If you want to fight back against rampant standardization and march to the beat of your own trumpet, we’re here for you.
