Question
Wooden Darning Egg
Wooden Darning Egg  
What is a wooden darning egg worth if I were to place it for sale?  It's entirely made of wood.  It also has a handle attached to the bottom of the egg shaped tool.
Thank you,
Alexis

Answer
Hello Alexis.  Wooden darning eggs were mass produced and don't bring much on the secondary market.  You can check completed auctions on eBay for similar items to yours and what they sold for, to get an idea of what your darning egg might bring.  Good luck with your search for a selling price.  Barbara
