Furniture – The bigger it is, usually the tougher the sell. Modern day furniture tastes are very simplistic. Exercise Equipment – Again, it’s big and every home has one. Dated Clothing – If it is not real clean designer or retro – its “dated”and probably should be donated. Office Furniture – The office of today is a cellphone, laptop, & a wireless printer Art – Even signed pieces often sell for simply how much the buyer enjoys the work. Glassware – Pottery Barn/Crate & Barrel sells, “dated “cordials., cocktails, figurines - what we call "80s/90s collectables" will be tough. Decorative Crystal - Some high end pieces are still in demand but, unfortunately, most folks just don't entertain much these days. CD’s, VHS, & DVDs – Each year these get just a bit tougher as things go digital. Ping Pong & Pool Tables – We know you paid a lot for it but they are huge! Pianos - They are big, heavy - and fewer and fewer people are taking up playing. Used Appliances - If shoppers aren't getting free delivery & a warranty they just wont pay much at all.
