What’s Not Selling Right Now?

Do you have items around your home that you wish to sell? Are you wondering if there are any buyers in the market right now?

Over time, tastes and styles change. Along with this, the hot items of today are likely to cool off some enough. Conversely, those that were once overlooked often move to the forefront of the market.

Here are a handful of items that have gone cold over the past few months:

•    Limited edition plates: With so many of these produced, and just as many saved, they’re not exactly limited edition.

•    Complete dinner sets: While some people can’t live without a complete dinner set, these aren’t nearly as popular as they once were. Instead, people are more inclined to mix and match pieces for a unique look at a more affordable price.

•    Upholstered furniture: If it’s in mint condition, you have a good chance of finding a buyer. However, if there’s anything wrong with the piece, it’s tough to make a sale. It simply costs too much to reupholster furniture in today’s world.

•    Hummels: There was a time when all of these figurines sold well, but those days are in the past. Now, rare Hummels are the only ones that are coveted.

Even though these items aren’t selling right now, you never know what will change in the future. So, keep an eye on the market and sell your items when the time is right!
