In a given setting camouflage cloaks and other enchanted equipment might just be gear you can buy. The blades Bilbo and Gandalf were wielding couldn't be purchased from any vendor, though.

Dresden pretty much just doesn't have magic items.
Harry Dresden? He started with a blasting rod (innate attack), magic staff (magery/skill bonus), and a kinetic ring (limited use attack). He enchanted a duster so it could shrug off bullets better than Kevlar. I'd list more, but that gets into spoilers.
