Former Rye Resident Marilynn Deane Mendell's New Silk Bow Tie, Inspired by Rye Playland

Former Rye resident Marilynn Deane Mendell’s fond memories of visiting Playland are tied up in this playful new silk bow tie, named for the summer-fun spot and recently released by Beau Ties Ltd. of Vermont. Based on an original watercolor by Mendell, now a resident of Fredericksburg, Virginia, the Playland tie’s design and bright colors, she says, “are inspired by my childhood of Hula-Hoops, frozen Charleston Chews, sunburns, and fireworks” during frequent visits to the waterside amusement park. Price: $45. To order:
