What are some items that you can sell quickly and make money from? Here are some examples of profitable items that you can put on the market.
7 Items You Can Easily Make Money From
1. All kinds of antique items
A lot of people are willing to pay for items that make them feel nostalgic. Anything from antique cabinets in San Diego to vintage electronics in Manhattan, folks are willing to shell out top dollar for things that remind them of their childhood.
2. Picture Frames
For some reason, picture frames are always in demand, especially the larger ones that have plenty of fine details. Larger frames make for good local sales to save up on shipping costs. The smaller ones are easier and less expensive to ship off to their new owners.
While books don’t truly bring in as much as antique furniture, they pretty much hold their own especially if they are popular books sold in sets, such as Harry Potter, The Lord of the Rings, and The Hunger Games. The right kind of textbooks can also turn in a good profit so be on the lookout for some college textbooks that have good resale value.
4. Video Game Consoles and Cartridges
If you have the right console, you can make big money on it. Some titles and genres are more popular than others. As a rule of thumb, the oldest and newest consoles and games rake in the most money. For instance, consoles such as the Atari 2600 and the old Nintendo Entertainment System are in demand right now among collectors, and so are games that are compatible with these consoles.
5. Collectible Toys
When we say collectible toys, it doesn’t just mean it is limited to vintage toys. Other than toys from the ‘70s to ‘90s, such as Barbie, Mego Dolls, G.I. Joes, and other similar toy lines, a lot of modern-day toys are considered as collectibles which appreciate as the years go by. If you still have some of your childhood toys with you and you’re willing to part with them, chances are, you will find a toy collector who’s willing to pay a handsome amount for them.
6. Branded Clothes
Second-hand, or pre-owned, clothes that have designer labels sell well, especially for those who want to own brand-name items but are not willing to pay for its retail prices. Take note of the popular high-end brands as well as the mall brands because these are the ones that most brand-conscious shoppers are looking for.
7. Record Players and Records
Record players and turntables keep coming back. As mentioned earlier, nostalgia has a funny way of affecting an item’s price. Record players are still popular as they were back in the day. Most thrift shops have a dedicated area for vinyl records and turntables. If you have plenty of vinyl in your collection, make sure you check out how much they’re going online before selling them to maximize profitability.
Whether you have these on-hand or you plan to buy them for reselling, these items are some of the easiest and most profitable today.
