A Wool Throw on Etsy for $19.99 plus shipping. Paid $3 for it but didn't realize until I got home that it had two large holes. I was still able to get a pretty good price for it though as a cutter.
I also sold another red bandana on ebay. Paid a buck or less and sold it on sale for $15.99 plus shipping. It has a cool sort of aztec pattern that was unusual.
I sold another bandana on etsy. An Oshkosh BGosh. Probably paid a buck. Sold for 19.99 plus shipping.
Edited to Add: As I promised Margaret (check out her blog!) in the comments I wanted to make a note about bandanas that have the elephant logo at the edge. Neither of my bandanas have one. Apparently if the trunk of the elephant is down vs. up the bandana is older and more valuable. Check out this list of sold on ebay.
Below is a picture. It's probably kind of hard to see the trunk here but you can see where to look for the elephant if you look at bandanas.
And lastly I sold some vintage Ray Ban Clip on Sunglasses. Paid $1 and they sold overnight for $29.99 plus shipping to Hong Kong. Glasses and sunglasses are a new thing for me to look for. I like them because they are small and light and easy to take pictures of. Goes the same for bandanas.
Lastly I frequently think about my childhood and how it relates to my scavenger ways. This week my thoughts went back to books I read (I was a very avid reader) that had scavenger type characters. I've listed three below that I remembered LOVING. Do you remember any scavenger type characters in books or movies that you loved? If you or your children haven't read the books I mention they are both really good! (if I remember correctly)
1. The Boxcar Children books. Especially when they first move into the boxcar and are setting up house.
2. From the Mixed - Up Files of Mrs. Basil E. Frankweiler. Two runaway kids live in a museum.
3. The Little House on the Prairie series
