Love these magnets....so unusual and useful!
I love this one! It's probably a bit big for a tie tack, but I didn't care. The color and natural scene was so unique I'll wear as a lapel pin. I was a bit concerned on how the magnet would hold tack and fabric on thicker ties, but no worries - the magnet is extremely strong. What a wonderful surprise, though, to open the package and find the two tie tacks I purchased were placed in a beautiful handmade(?) wooden box. I've ordered from a handful of etsy shops over a few years and this is one of the best experiences from start to finish. Thanks ModRenMan!
Beautiful and will revive my use of so many of my scarves!
Second time ordering as husband loved the first items I surprised him with. As last time I received great service, item packaged in a cute little box and the brooch was even more beautiful than the pictures showed. Super happy once more and will surely shop again!
Yes i can finally review this! I love it!!!! More people should buy this! It's ingenious, leaves no marks!
Nice smooth stone; versatile for color matching; edging symmetrical and very pretty; love the magnet idea. Couldn't be happier. Thanks so much.
Magnetic brooch goes perfectly with the scarf I purchased from this company. What a very nice combination.
Just love these Victorian buttons. They make great scarf holders.
A lovely vintage up cycled brooch which goes well with my wardrobe. A brilliant invention - easy to use and does not harm the fabric of the scarves or clothes. It has got some patina on the metal but that doesn't take away its beauty. A 5 star seller, highly recommended!
I love CHICK MAGNET -- this is so pretty!
Awesome Mag Tak!
Simply lovely -- just what I was looking for. A truly unique piece. Many thanks for the quick and careful shipping.
Another neat MAG TAK. Easy transaction. Thanks.
t was a pleasure dealing with Tracy - she really did go the extra mile to accommodate my requirements. The lapel pin is great. The magnets are very strong - no risk of it falling off. The vintage container it arrived in is wonderful too. Highly recommended and will happily purchase from Tracy again in future.
Exactly as pictured. Strong magnet, looks great

Round 2: Another beautiful Mag TAK from Mr. and Mrs. Renaissance, perfect colors and creative style. Excellent addition to my growing collection. Thanks guys!
When I received my order, I was literally in awe! Both tie and bar were of excellent condition, even better than expected. The packaging was a thing of care and beauty. What sets this shop apart from all the rest is the personal touch that makes you feel like a friend more than a patron.
Love the pin, great presentation. Thank you

Fashion always repeats itself, but now with a magnetic twist. We invented a tie tack that not only serves a purpose of securing your tie without poking holes in your fine fabrics, but also lends itself to a revived fashion statement from the early 1900's. We have put together some styling examples for reference.
Our line of Mag TAK™s are constructed with very powerful magnets that can be used on ties, jacket lapels and on hats as a hat pin. The style options of the Mag TAK™ s that we offer range from modern and minimal designs to authentic antique pieces from the 1900's upcycled as magnetic pins.
