Yes,you can sell some of your clutter on Etsy. Many people view the site for just handmade items. But according to Etsy

“Etsy’s marketplace includes handmade items, vintage items, and craft supplies. Reselling is only allowed in the vintage and craft supplies categories. Everything listed in our Handmade category must be made or designed by you, the seller. Reselling is not allowed in Handmade”

What is Vintage and Do You Have Anything ?

 Etsy defines vintage as items over 20 years old. Do you have some vintage items in your stash? That includes, jewelry, old coins, old silverware but not old people.(LOL)

Now let’s look at the area really missed which is that surplus of craft items you may have.  Anything you can purchase at a craft store potentially can be resold, including:
Beads of all types.
Decorative buttons.
Fabric.
Yarn (both in spools and for latch rugs)
Paints.
Artist canvas.
Silk flowers.
Rubber stamps.

So look around and sort through your stuff. If you need help selling here are two books that can get you started.
