Niche Item – Vintage Personal Care Items

I have often spoken of the popularity of vintage items. I have talked about vintage cookbooks, dinnerware, even telephones. Who knew that level of popularity would carry over into personal care items, as well!

An eBay Seller recently sold vintage StayFree Maxi and Mini pads. The set of three, unopened boxes from 1985 and 1990 of various types sold for a rather high profit. A screenshot of the closed auction is below:

No, your eyes do not deceive you. After 36 bids, the set sold for a whopping $199.51. Included in the sale was:

  • 10 Unscented Mini Pads (1990)
  • 12 Super Maxi Pads (1985)
  • 12 Deodorant Maxi Pads (1985)
  • It goes to show you that vintage items (no matter the category) can be great sellers! Now, what do you have laying around in your basement/attic/closet that you can list?
