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.
