4 Items in Your Home You Didn't Know Could Be Worth Good Money

Most of us can find useless things around the house that we want to get rid of. The good news is that there may be buyers waiting to pay cash for your unwanted possessions. 

All you have to do is market them online and be prepared to mail the items or have them ready for pick up when the deal is confirmed. Here are four surprising things you might own that could be worth a fair amount of money.

Books and Toys

People who take good care of former toys and collectible sets can often sell them for surprising amounts of money. Some buyers are looking for toys that were popular decades ago and will pay a good price for those in great condition. 

Toys that still have their original packaging are especially valuable for many collectors. Before giving away your grown kids' old playthings, look through them to see if any might be worth selling. The same holds for vintage books of any genre. Browse your titles online to see what they might be worth.

Dishware and Kitchen Equipment

Complete sets of authentic china in good condition, particularly those by renowned companies like Wedgewood, can fetch a tidy sum from interested buyers. Antique cookware and kitchen utensils handed down over several generations also attract interest from dishware collectibles. 

Certain types of kitchen equipment, like brand-name deluxe blenders and old-fashioned stoves, are frequently in demand. Before taking pictures to market your items, clean them up, and make any minor repairs. Indicate whether they still work the original way or if they have been modified for modern kitchen use.

Vehicles that Don't Run

Cars, vans, trucks, motorcycles, and just about anything on wheels, whether it runs or not, is likely to attract interest from people who rebuild cars or need a used part for the vehicle they are driving. 

Just put up a sign or post an ad that says "buy my junk car," and you may be surprised by the number of calls, emails, or texts you receive.

Cosmetic Jewelry

While valuable gemstones are often available from someone's inheritance or an estate sale, costume jewelry is growing in popularity as well. 

Retro-style necklaces, bracelets, and earrings are in demand by drama troupes, film companies, and those looking for accessories to complete their Halloween costumes.

Don't let your marketable goods go to waste. Set aside the best ones and advertise them to the appropriate market to earn money on what you might have otherwise given away.
