9 Frequently Ditched Items We Can Actually Make Money From
The era of cassette players, VHS cassettes, and boomboxes has already passed but the interest in these items is still there. Do you remember the boomboxes our dads used to walk around with on streets? Today, these can be sold for $400. People buy them as collectibles or to repair.
In the 80s, film companies produced some films videotape which is why today collectors buy VHS tapes for really good money. Even if the movies recorded on them are total trash. So blow the dust off your collection — there might be a diamond hiding in your home that you didn’t even know about.

Collectors are ready to pay a lot of money for the toys of your childhood. And those are not rare porcelain dolls from the late 19th century but bald baby dolls and rubber ducklings from the 70s and 80s. People suffering from nostalgia are ready to pay $200 or more to get these toys back into their life.
However, things are not always certain with toys. Sometimes nice and bright dolls will only earn the seller a couple of dollars, while vintage PEZ dispensers will sell out at auctions. For example, a rare sample from the year 1982 was sold at auction for $32,000.
