The Hawaiian shirts will be kept and probably offered one by one on Ebay. I was in Hawaii (1960s) before the interest spiraled and got a lot of them in goodwill, etc. shops, when they were lumped with other used shirts. Now, the goodwill stores sell them to vintage stores where they are sold at collector prices. (A new quality Hawaiian shirt, sewn in Hawai'i, made of good cotton, runs $75 or more.)

The ties will be used in costumes and perhaps a quilt. Most are good silk with some pure wool. In the 1960s, when I was hitting all the used and junktique stores, the local goodwills were loaded with them, and I picked out the ones made with good silk.

My daughter also was happy to get the old suitcases that they were in- she stages some local theater, and vintage props are not always easy to find anymore.
I had other vintage stuff she could use (gooseneck lamps, an old radio or two, that sort of thing).

The sun is ahining and the snow-ice is disappearing on shaded areas. Maybe up to 13-15 for a few days, and the grond will thaw. Spring is 3 weeks late here.
The city accepts yard waste delivered to local sites, but prefers it in large paper bags, which also can be composted. Bought them at Canadian Tire.
