Make money in your sleep….

Vintage t.v. and movie/novelty linens are really great sellers.   Look for cartoons/characters from the 80’s and older…they do the best.  And if you find a sheet set still in the package (and they are out there),they are definitely worth quite a bit. Be sure to look for them in dressers/drawers/closets of estate sales.  Some of the themes that do well: Mario Brothers, McDonald’s,  Barbie, Pokeman, Snoopy, Peanuts,Dukes of Hazzard, Rainbow Brite, Smurfs, Star Wars….just to name a few. The more obscure the show or product…the more it can be worth! Always check sheets for holes, rips, and stains.  Sheets with flaws can  be marketed as fabric.

    I had that Charlie Brown sheet set and kept the pillowcase long after the sheets had disintegrated! Oh how I wish I could go back in time with this knowledge

    Where do you suggest getting the best price for these sheets? An auction site or a vintage site where you set the price. Where would more people be looking for them?
    I was a mom who bought character sheets (transformers, sesame street, peanuts, etc) and when they were outgrown I carefully packed them away.

      I like Ebay….I’ve got a stack of vintage sheets I’m going to put on as auctions in the coming weeks. I have an Etsy account…like that site…but I like a quick nickel…and with the holidays….people(parents, college students, artsy people,collectors) will love those kind of sheets for gifts and crafts.
