Learn More About 1970s Vintage Items to Sell on eBay

Vintage items are gaining popularity on eBay as the population ages and more people are buying things for the sake of reminiscing. Maybe you lived through the 1970s and you remember these things. Or, maybe you lived through the 1970s but you don't remember this stuff for various reasons - we won't go there. The bottom line is that these items are still out there and if you know what to look for, you can find and sell some interesting pieces of popular culture on eBay. Here are a few things that have value on eBay but you might not realize it.

Remember CB Radios? Here is one that sold for $105. This is the kind of thing you can find at a garage sale cheap because the general public thinks they are obsolete and nobody wants it.

How about old Polaroid cameras? This one sold for $274. (This particular model was from 1982, but you get the idea.) The Polaroid film regardless of age is also an excellent seller.

Remember the original Sony Walkman that played cassette tapes? Those can sell for hundreds of dollars. Here is one that sold for $500. The owner was in Poland.

Vintage calculators can be a great find. This 1970s Hewlett Packard pocket calculator sold for $115.

You are showing your age if you remember the video game Pong. Extremely lame by today's standards, but those of us who grew up in the 1970s thought it was the coolest thing ever. Here is a vintage Pong console that sold for $192.50.

Vintage doesn't necessarily mean clothing, home decor, or toys! Keep your eye out for these types of items when you are out at garage sales and thrift stores. There are all kinds of goodies hiding out there!

 Did you know you can also sell vintage items on Etsy? Not just clothing, but all sorts of items including electronics, toys, home decor, arts and crafts, and much more. Some vintage items sell for much more on Etsy than on eBay! If you aren't selling vintage items on Etsy in addition to eBay, you are leaving money on the table.
