Need To Make Some Quick Money?

The holiday season just ended in North America. Many people are recovering from the financial burden of having so many holidays right in a row. Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Year's are all expensive holidays, and the price of gift-giving can add up rather quickly. Money can be very tight after the holidays, especially if you have a large family (or expensive taste)! If you are looking for a way to make some quick money before the weather begins to warm up, it might be time to dust off your vintage costume jewelry. 

Whether you collect authentic jewelry or not, the chances are very high that you have a few pieces of costume jewelry in your home. These vintage-inspired pieces are created to replicate authentic pieces of valuable jewelry, which means they are usually very well made. To make some easy money, your first step will be to find your vintage costume jewelry.

Once this jewelry has been located, take the time to clean it off. If the piece is extremely dusty, be sure to gently dust it off. Most jewelry can be cleaned with a mild mixture of dish soap and warm water. You can use a toothbrush or another small brush to get into the tight crevices.

After your jewelry has been cleaned, it is time to get your phone out! Find a well-lit area of your home (preferably a table or other flat surface) and snap some photos. Aim to take at least 3 or 4 photos of each piece from different angles so that you can do your vintage costume jewelry justice online!

Your next step is to post these photos online. Log in to your preferred marketplace website and create a simple post including basic descriptions of your pieces. Add your photos to the post as well. Once the post has been typed up, go ahead and post it. 

Your next step is to wait for vintage costume jewelry buyers to see your stunning photos and reach out to you. When working with any potential buyer online, keeping the basics of online safety in the forefront of your mind is crucial. It may be a good idea to video chat with the buyer before making any decisions. Any effort you can make to verify the buyer's identity will serve you well and ensure that you receive a valid form of compensation for your vintage costume jewelry.
