Reselling Vintage Backpacks and Totes- 3 brands to look for
If you’re anything like myself, you probably skip sifting through the backpacks and totes when you are out thrifting. That was me…until I found out about these 3 gems. Now, I always take a couple minutes to wander over to the backpack section and browse through. You should keep an out for these three brands in particular. We all are familiar with the brand, Jansport, but did you know that some of the vintage ones are highly sought after? Vintage LL Bean totes, especially with the script label (seen above) sell for a lot on eBay too. I actually never heard of Gregory backpacks until I stumbled upon a high selling one (and now I’ll never forget them!).
