Straight Outta ‘90s: Good Dropshipping Products That Take You Back In Time

By Olga Lavrinovich

good dropshipping products: 90s-inspired items

Look through this selection of insanely good dropshipping products for the ‘90s-inspired store!

Do you remember our article dedicated to unusually profitable dropshipping niche ideas?

In case you don’t, here’s a super short summary:

  • Emotions influence buying processes and can trigger impulse purchases
  • People are careful about preserving their legacy and heritage
  • A huge number of buyers pays attention to fashion and current trends

Hmmm.

It makes us wonder: what happens if we combine nostalgic feelings with cutting-edge fashion?

And the answer here is clear and obvious: we get a super appealing dropshipping niche with a significant potential!

This is why a store selling some of the hottest things of the 1990s is likely to be a commercially successful venture. Read further to find out why we stick to this opinion!

Why do we even consider the ‘90s stuff to be good dropshipping products?

Just think of it: the ‘90s are a touching and well-remembered decade – for many of us, it is associated with careless childhood/teenage years that were full of promise.

What’s especially curious, many of the symbols of this era are not just some bizarre artifacts that simply remind us of the good old days: thanks to the circular nature of fashion, we can see the same familiar things on runways and tabloids’ covers again.

This is exactly what happened to small and narrow sunglasses: Vogue spoke of them as of the 2017 summer’s biggest trend, and, according to both The Guardian and The Independent, ‘tiny sunglasses are going to be big in 2018’.

Nearly the same happened to Tamagotchi toys: as you can see from the Google Trends graph below, in the last 12 months, this ultimate symbol of the Nineties saw a sudden spike of interest from buyers across the globe.

And of course, some things like Tetris simply don’t go out of fashion. Ever.
