15 Old Things in Your Basement That Are Literally Worth a Fortune

things found in basement

How’s your basement looking right now? Is it nice and neat or messy and heavily cluttered with no room to swing a cat?

If you’re just like me, your basement is most likely filled with old stuff. From paint cans to used shoes and outdated electronics, most basements look like a tornado has swept through them.

And let’s be honest… we don’t pay too much attention to our basements, although they deserve it.

Tell me, how long has it been since your last basement declutter? Can’t remember? Well, maybe it’s time to take a closer look at the old items you find down there. Even if most things belong in the trash, I bet you’ll find some potential money-makers underneath the stairs.

Check all your mildewed cardboard boxes—your old stuff could generate you a handsome sum of money (if not a fortune).

  1. I have items that may fall into vintage items. Have nothing to refer to as far as value of items. Do you have a catalog or a Webb site I could go to that would have this information?

  2. Nancy Portia Barberis

    i even have an old juke box and dozens of 45 records , boxes of the great big records 33’s and 98’s ?? in the garage
    yoyo’s boxes of comic books heaven only knows, what is in the attic

  3. I have 20 foot POD with items from 3 families. How do I go about selling the items?
    I have collector plates, 1900 Lynn Range with all accessories, furniture, Books, Art, cameras

  4. No basement but attics are the same for us who live on rock. I have about 100 331/3 records – in original jackets. Some of the Beatles – Bob Dylan – John Denver – Barbra – lots of Broadway – lots of opera – lots of classical piano.

  5. Why do you title it as 15 things when you only show 9, have the other 6 already been sold or thrown away? People really should learn how to count it sometimes drives me nuts to see how our education system has let our kids down to a point where they cannot even count or add simple numbers without a calculator to do it for them.
