Day 7 of Money Challenge #2: Everyday Listing/Selling for 31 days – Scarf it down

Summer 2006 was the summer of yard sales. My college roommate Megan and I went to dozens of yard sales that summer. Every Saturday was a new adventure to find the ever elusive items that we could sell on ebay to make a few extra bucks.

In talking with some old ladies running a church rummage sale in some small dusty town in Kansas, I learned about Vera Neumann scarves. Collector scarves from post World War II era America, usually in beautiful bold colors and signed “Vera” with her signature ladybugs present somewhere in the pattern. The old gals convinced me to pay $1 for one of their Vera scarves and I’ve hung onto it ever since.

Until today, when I listed it on ebay:


It doesn’t have Vera’s signature ladybugs, but I’m hoping to get a few bucks for it. We shall see…
