Trunks
Your steamer trunk went with you to college. It was the coffee table in your first apartment. Now it's in your bedroom because you thought it might function nicely as a bench of sorts, but mostly you just stub your toe on it when you're headed to the bathroom at 3 a.m. Spare your feet by selling it. Michael Capo, owner of Capo Auction, says the most popular are large hard-shell trunks from the '20s and '30s with drawers inside. One such piece will fetch between $200 and $300.
