As most people know, with the advent of e-bay and other internet auction sites the market for collectibles and vintage items has risen significantly. It is now easier than ever to connect buyer and seller and this benefits both.
I have seen the market for vintage toys skyrocket over the last 20 years. People will pay a lot to satisfy their feelings of nostalgia and toys often fetch huge prices, especially if they are in good condition.
Slot cars tracks especially. If you have a well preserved track it can sell for well over a thousand dollars. There are also lots of rare limited edition cars that collectors clamor for. So head up to your attic and dust off your old toys. There might be a bar of gold sitting up there.
