Things That Just Don't Sell

In the auction world there are two truths: When buying it's worth $5, when selling it's worth a million. There are also some items that either will not sell or will sell for very little:


  • Upholstered Furniture (especially sleeper sofas)

  • Sewing Machines

  • Excercise Equipment

  • Medical Items (walkers, wheel chairs, etc)

  • China (unless a classic company like Doulton or Minton)

  • Press Board Furniture

  • Entertainment Centers

  • Upright Pianos and Organs

  • Non Flatscreen TV's

  • Books (unless historical in nature)

  • Amber & Green Glass (excluding vaseline glass)

  • Anything Broken or Damaged  (unless extremely rare like Edgefield pottery)

  • Pillows, Stuffed Animals, Afghans and Mattresses
