Got any of these treasures collecting dust?
You could be quids in if you do!
If you earn a huge fortune because of this post then feel free to come and treat me to a drink or two as a way of appreciating haha!
We have collect items over the years that we keep as it may come in handy one day, something you like or just stuff you hoard and never throw out.
Well now is the time to dust the off and check just how much they could be worth, question is though, would you part with them as they may be worth even more in many years to come.
First edition books
You can head to any car boot sale and pick up an old book for 10p but some of them have real value so before you part with them for pennies, check just how much they are going for.
In the past The Great Gatsby has been known to go for around £2,200, Sense And Sensibility has previously sold for £26,500 and The Lord Of The Rings Trilogy was once sold for £63,500!
That is some serious cash!
How many of us still have our original Furby, I’m gutted my parents threw mine out years ago!
The original Furbys from 1998 could see you collect a bit of cash, if they come in their original packing then you could be looking at over £350!
Didn’t all 90’s kids collect Pokemon cards? If you still have yours then dig them out and check if you have any first-edition collection – You could be looking at over £3000!
Happy Meal toys
Believe it or not, there is actually people who would purchase old McDonalds toys!
Some bundles of Happy Meal toys have been known to sell for more than £300 in a bundle. So next time you you clear out the kids bedroom, stash away the Happy Meal toys in a safe place.
Disney VHS tapes
We recently went on a caravan holiday and there was a VHS player in the caravan we hired along with some tapes – my children didn’t have a clue what they were and couldn’t believe you had to stand up and go to the machine to rewind a bit they missed because they were being too noisy!
Old Disney VHS tapes have known to go for thousands in the past few year including a rare Beauty And The Beast VHS which was put on eBay for £9,500.
I never had a Game Boy when I was younger, it was something I always wanted though!
The better quality the Game Boy is in then the more money you are likely to get for it. If it comes in its original packaging then that can boost the price massively!
