Do you have plenty of old stuff and valuable things at your home?
Consider selling those vintage items at stores or online shops. An item with an age of at least 50 years can get a high bid in our present market.
You can get a lot of money selling old stuff from your home, so try not to throw out old stuff. Here are five items that can get you a lot of money to boost your startup funds.
1. Vinyl Records
Since vinyl records are rising as a 2020 trend, more people sell them at a higher price. Most vinyl records are vintage, and records from certain artists can cost hundreds to thousands of dollars. They’re more expensive now due to the costs of production.
One of the best ways to sell vinyl records is by selling them to record or music stores. You can also try selling them in online stores such as eBay and Amazon. Vinyl records can cost from $200 to $460 per record.
There are plenty of different models and manufacturers of typewriters hitting the market. Those rare-plated typewriters can get plenty of high bids on many sites like eBay. Bids can go as high as $475 to $650 for fully working typewriters.
3. Pokemon Cards
If you’ve collected Pokemon cards as a kid and need money, you can sell them at a high price. A complete set of these items can sell for more than a hundred dollars in online stores. Ultra-rare cards can go well over a thousand dollars.
An example is the holographic Charizard that sold for well over $11,999. With the proper grade and examination by experts, you can also sell off yours for almost the same price. Some factors affecting the price include card condition, popularity, PSA grading system number, etc.
4. Retro Video Games
Those old toys and video games are valuable things that you can sell for a high price. Whether the games are working or not, you can sell from $60 to $200. However, working vintage video games can range from $600 to $2,000.
Plenty of valuable and ultra-rare Super Nintendo games are booming in the market. You can go and find your Japanese imports and limited-run edition games. Some popular titles include Mega Man X3, Chrono Trigger, and Super Mario RPG.
