Fashion house Saint Laurent is selling vintage smileys for £700 and a version based on the album In Utero for a staggering £2,510.

But what if you hid the original?
We look at hidden devices that can help you earn extra money.
North Face jacket
The retro North Face jacket has become a trend among retro fashion fans.
A Gore-Tex climbing jacket sells for around £50 on eBay while an Oasis-style mod jacket will cost upwards of £75 and a ski jacket around £85.
A yellow and black puffer fish will cost around £200.

Today, the brand has become more trendy thanks to collaborations with streetwear houses such as Supreme and Sacai.
Celebrities like Harry Styles are embracing the relaunch of the classic Nuptse quilted coat with Kendall Jenner and models Bella Hadid and Hailey Bieber spotted in colorful versions.
While North Face is still producing retro-inspired designs, owning an original is a winner.
A 1996 Men’s Nuptse is currently around £165 on eBay.
wide leg pants
You’d be forgiven for thinking that the very unrealistic popper pants, beloved by the Spice Girls, were left in the ’90s where they belonged.
But celebrities have given them an unlikely resurgence – with Kim Kardashian and Rihanna recently embracing the trend.
You’ll get around £20 off a pair of Adidas on Vinted in white, a Nike version on sale on Etsy for £40.

Yes, women really did wear skirts and trousers that were attached in the 90s, nicknamed Skants.

If you have one, you can charge up to £163 on eBay.
Kelly McGillis sparked the oversized bomber jacket craze when she wore one for the 1986 movie Top Gun – and made it look cool.

Now they’re back – and if yours is in good shape, it can make a lot of money.
They are now selling for up to £100 on sites like eBay and Etsy.
Fila football jersey
Before big names like Nike and Adidas dominated the football market, names like Fila, Diadora and Kappa were all the rage among football fans.

Even the Fila swim trunks are making waves with prices up to £58 a piece.
Low-rise, hip-hugging jeans just need to be teamed with a striking ’90s belt.
And for some reason disc belts are all kinds of – think Gladiator meets Topshop.
Worn with trousers, skirts, dresses and even beach sarongs, this is a favorite look of celebrities like Britney Spears, Victoria Beckham and Destiny’s Child.
If you stick with one, large belts are currently on sale for around £50 on Etsy.
They were still around in the early 2000s, and later versions cost around £20 on Vinted and Etsy.
