My daughter, Lauralee, used to work for Nordstrom, not too long ago. One of her positions for a while was in accessories. She couldn't believe it, how $100-$150 scarves were right out there for public handling. But there were also scarves that were behind glass casing...that sold for hundreds of dollars.

The $100-$150 scarves were (IMO) nothing too special either.

Even though these two scarves cost me $3.85 each in yarn, I wouldn't sell them for less than $100. When you consider stitches and time involved. And there isn't one error in either of them.
