Movies are one of the most iconic art forms in the modern era, so it’s no wonder that the props used in them can become valuable collectibles.
If you’re lucky enough to own a collectible movie prop, you may have considered selling it at one point. Here’s a list of places to sell your movie props online and things you should consider for each:
eBay seems to be the go-to place to sell anything valuable, especially collectibles. And for good reason! It’s probably the world’s largest marketplace, so finding a buyer at a good price is almost never the problem. However it does come with its drawbacks. Selling on eBay takes a LOT of time between taking pictures, writing descriptions, answering questions and getting everything listed in the proper categories. Even after making that time commitment, there’s no guarantee that your items will sell. Even if you decide not to sell your movie props on eBay, it’s useful to at least review their expired listings to see what similar items sold for to help determine how much your own movie props are worth.
Craigslist is another large online marketplace, but it’s much more geographically-centered, so it only works well if you live in a densely populated area. Otherwise, you may have a hard time finding a buyer, let alone one willing to pay a decent price. While it doesn’t take a much work to sell something on Craigslist as it does on eBay, you still have to take pictures, list the items, write descriptions and answer questions. Then you have to wait and hope you get legitimate offers. And because most Craigslist sales happen in-person, you have to take time to meet the buyer and make the exchange, which takes more time.
