3 Things That Fetch an Insane Price on Etsy

You know the saying, one man’s junk is another man’s treasure.  That’s the only way to describe the 3 things that fetch an insane price on Etsy.  They can all be found for under a few dollars yet fetch 5x – 20x more on Etsy. Let’s take a look!

Old (a.k.a vintage) Gooseneck Desk Lamps

We all had one, an out of fashion dim light on our desks growing up.  Well guess what, they fetch an insane price now.  Take a look at the sample search and you’ll see lamps range from $30-100 dollars.  Ugly seems to have no effect on the price, only the age.   Look for lamps made pre 80s.

Old (a.k.a vintage) Pyrex Bowls and Glass Containers

You know the glass bowls and glass containers grandma uses, the white ones with weird colors and shapes. Yup they also fetch an insane price.  Try to get them and sell them in a set to maximum profit.  BTW Jade-ite color (puke green) makes buyers dish out more money for them.  Stay away from Pyrex that are chipped or cracked. Simple way to tell if they are vintage enough is to stay away from the clear ones.  BTW don’t try to put them in the dishwasher, it’ll ruin them.

Old (a.k.a vintage) Glass Mugs

We all have our favorite mug but it’s a mystery why people pay an insane amount for mugs that are decades old.  Stay away from chipped or cracked ones and find
mugs that are emblazoned or of pop culture (movies, music, sports, etc.).  But dear god please don’t drink from them afterwards.

Good Luck!
