From Yard Sale to Ebay$$, $2 turns into $325
Here is another of my eBay successes (I've had my share of failures, too).
I bought several ceramic cats at a yard sale a few years ago. They were covered with years of what looked like, kitchen grease and dirt. I took the whole box of them at $1 apiece. I ran them through the dishwasher and noticed these two seemed to match. I went to the book store and looked up vintage collectables and found these two listed as Hagen-Reneker of Monrovia, CA and that they were part of the Designers Workshop of Hagen Reneker. I got over $125 for the big one, "Fluff" and over $200 for her baby, "Puff". I corresponded with an expert on HR collectibles and he stated it was rare to see a Puff without a broken tail. I hated to part with these two.
