Bric Brac is sometimes referred to as miscellaneous product or knick knacks. Bric brac can either be bought and sold as original donations (raw/credential) or salvage or recycled bric brac (e.g. from a thrift store).
Buying and selling this product is not straight-forward as packaging and sorting must be taken into consideration. Packaging is important to both protect the fragile nature of some of the product (e.g. glassware) and maximize the weight of the load.
Items should be packed into a gaylord in layers starting with heavy non-breakable items followed by a layer of breakable items tightly packed. A small amount of cloth can be wrapped around the breakable items if necessary and they should be “nested” as much as possible. A layer of cloth can be placed between the layers of breakable and non-breakable items. An alternative is packaging tightly into small boxes. The pictures on this page provide a good illustration of well packaged bric brac product.
Of course, credential or originally donated bric brac will likely contain an array of household items that vary in value, size and quality. Salvage, recycled or “post-thrift” bric brac will be sorted to some specifications. Salvage bric brac can include the following products:
