4 Ways To Make A Small Fortune With Things You Might Find In Your Home
Every now and then, we all hit a rough patch. What with paying bills, mortgages, loan interests, kids’ school fees and whatnot, the monthly salary barely seems to make the cut. How grateful would you be for some extra cash? Very grateful indeed, right? Have you given any thought to how you could be making not just some, but possibly good money with some of the things that can be found right in your home? Take a look at a few such ways below;
1. Grandma’s Furniture Could be Antiques
The old furniture in your house that belonged to another generation such as the bed with the headboard that shows intricately detailed craftsmanship, the heavy wooden chest of drawers with the brass handles, the mirror with the beautifully carved wooden frame and the rocking chair that has a wonderful antique look and feel to it can actually be worth a lot of money. If you find the right collector or furniture company who buys collectibles and antiques, you may be able to make some good money out of grandma’s old furniture.
2. Open up that Old Liquor Cabinet
Not a big drinker? Then you probably have quite a few bottles of liquor lying around inside your cabinets. Did you know your old stock can fetch you a good amount of cash? You can sell vintage brandy and other similar types of liquor for very high prices per bottle if you find the right kind of buyer.
You can even find a good company to sell vintage brandy to if you look online. There are many individual collectors and companies on the lookout for rare spirits to add to their collection.
3. Make More Room on the Bookshelf
If you have any dated books, preferably first or early editions, there may be collectors out there who will be more than happy to take them off your hands in return for a handsome sum of money. If you search online, you will be able to find buyers on the lookout for collectible books and other reading material. Or you can simply upload descriptions and pictures of your books to a consumer website such as eBay to reach buyers faster. Not only will you make room on the shelves that way, but you will also end up having some extra cash to make ends meet around the house.
4. Gave up Philately?
Remember your old hobby of collecting stamps? If you can still find the old albums, you might be sitting on a goldmine! The old stamps that you once so carefully found and collected can be of great value in the market today. If you are no longer interested in holding your collection, it may be a good idea to sell it off to someone who might be interested in purchasing it. You can ask around from your colleagues, neighbours and friends if anyone in interested or better yet, you can sell it online to get a better price.
