Old things that can be expensive to sell

Many of the old things of the Soviet era stored in attics and garages today are valuable for collectors, which means that they can be sold for more than their initial price.

Things of the USSR, are in demand among collectors

The era of the Soviet Union has sunk into oblivion, leaving behind a mass of useless things that gather dust in the closets of our homes. For a long time they were not needed by anyone, until suddenly among collectors who were nostalgic for the recent past, interest in these subjects flared up.

For example, the composition “Walk”, released according to Malysheva’s sketches, was bought at an online auction for 630 thousand rubles. By the way, before the October Revolution, the owners of the Dulevsky plant attracted famous artists, among whom was Mikhail Vrubel, to develop the design of their dishes and figurines.

There are legends about the high cost of old Soviet records, but in fact, not every one of them can be sold at a high price.

Their price can reach several hundred dollars.

Soviet-made products that cannot be sold expensively

But not all old things from the times of the USSR are in demand among collectors of Soviet antiquities. Many people mistakenly believe that Singer sewing machines (Singer) are highly valued among collectors. Allegedly in the 30s-40s. of the last century, a limited batch of these devices with Dutch parts was brought to the Soviet Union, which makes them almost unique.

Alas, this is only a myth, and sewing machines, which the Americans have released a huge variety, are not listed on the market of rare items. The maximum amount you can earn from its sale is $ 50.

In the 70s, the Soviet people invested in the purchase of gold and crystal. Then no one could have imagined that vases, rooks and wine glasses made of this sparkling glass would devalue over time, and people would fill them with “walls” to the eyeballs. And since to this day this fragile magnificence has been preserved a lot, it cannot claim to be unique and rare. At best, you will be offered $ 15 for a crystal vase, and $ 6 for a crystal ashtray.

Radio Rigonda with a turntable for vinyl records was produced in the Baltics by millions of parties. Today it is not such a big rarity, and therefore the price for it is low - $ 10-20.

But who knows, maybe in fifty years these old things will grow in price considerably. Therefore, do not rush to get rid of them. In the worst case, your grandchildren will study the history of their forefathers.
