Buying and reselling collector items is a great way to increase your income–as long as you know what to sell.
In fact, eBay alone currently has about 25 million sellers and is only one of several e-commerce sites designed for reselling antique, vintage, and collector goods.
If you’re just getting into the reselling business, you’re probably wondering what the best items to resell are. You might be surprised to discover what has value in 2021!
Read on to learn more about the best five items to resell online and make some serious cash overnight.
1. Mint Condition Vintage Toys
Nostalgia sells. If you can get your hands on vintage toys, including things like Cabbage Patch dolls, Legos, and Beanie Babies, you may be able to make some serious dough. However, it’s important that they’re in mint condition–and that they currently have a market.
Beanie Babies are one of the hottest commodities in the reselling world, but not all Beanie Babies turn a profit. Look up the value of your collection before you start setting prices online.
2. Vintage Pyrex and Tupperware
Vintage Pyrex and Tupperware dishes and containers are often tucked away in thrift stores with low price tags. If you can find sets that are in high demand, you can strike gold. Right now, most people are in the market for colorful Pyrex or Tupperware, preferably from 1990 or earlier.
3. Brand-Name Clothing
Fashion is cyclical and shopping secondhand is in. However, some people don’t enjoy spending their weekends in thrift stores sifting through piles of used clothing in search of hidden gems. If you have a talent for spotting name-brand clothing like Calvin Klein and Michael Kors, it’s time to open up an online name-brand clothing store.
4. Sports Memorabilia
There’s a huge market of buyers who are interested in high-value, collectible sports memorabilia. From rare baseball cards to signed basketballs to vintage jerseys, there are tons of items that can fill a lucrative online sports memorabilia shop. If you can find items that are signed or previously belonged to a specific athlete, even better.
5. Antique Dishware
Antique dishware that is still in good condition can be worth a lot of money if you can find the right buyers. Keep an eye out for dishes created by makers such as Haviland, Staffordshire, and Nippon. Note that not every antique dish is rare, and you’ll need to do some research to understand more about which pieces are easy to find and which are high in value.
