With the expansive and seemingly never ending world in The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, you’re probably thinking “There’s tons of places to sell my stuff - why can’t I just sell it to any merchant in the game?”

Well, dear Witcher lover, unfortunately not every merchant you encounter will be willing to take the specific item(s) you’re trying to sell. Different merchants may trade you a different amount of crowns for said item(s).

Today, we’re discussing the best places to sell your stuff and make a decent profit off of it.

Food and drink is great for replenishing a bit of health, but having too much of it can take up precious inventory space. The best place to sell any unwanted food or drink is the Inn at the Crossroads located in Velen. The Innkeeper will always offer you full price for any food or drink that you want to sell. 

Here’s what’s great about the Inn at The Crossroads:

  • The Innkeeper will offer you full price for all food and drink you desire to sell.

You can find books in basically every chest or destination where you can loot. Books begin to add up in your inventory, weighing you down and taking up precious space. Books and Scrolls is the perfect place to get rid of any unwanted text. Head to Novigrad and make your way to Heirach Square where the shop is located.

Here’s what’s great about Books and Scrolls - 

  • Merchants will usually accept books for less crowns than they’re worth, but the librarian will buy your books for close to if not the full amount of crowns they’re worth.

8. The Alchemist - Best place to sell trophies

Monster head trophies are a pretty dope achievement when you slay a difficult foe, but they don’t add much value to your play in the long run. Since you can rack up so many trophies, you’ll eventually want to sell them, but when you do you’re going to get a lot less than the 50 to 300 crowns that they’re worth.

The Alchemist is your best bet. You can find him right outside of Novigrad above Oxenfurt Gate. He will buy your trophies at full price.

Here’s what’s great about The Alchemist - 

  • He will buy your trophies at full price.
  • He will acquire more crowns after he runs out when buying your trophies, so you can come back to him later if you need to.

Throughout The Witcher 3, you’re probably going to lose count of all the armor you acquire. As you progress through the game, the armor gets more and more valuable, and while you can stash the unwanted gear, you can also sell them for a pretty penny. 

You’ll find the Journeyman Armorer in Novigrad at the northwest corner of Hierarch Square.

Here’s what’s great about the Journeyman Armorer:

  • With over 4,000 crowns, the Armorer has a lot of money to spare for your unwanted armor.
  • Any armor you sell to an armorer will give you a 20% bonus, and selling to armorers in Novigrad gives you an extra 10%.

This merchant seems a bit random and looks like a bum, but he’s a gem. With over 200 empty bottles for sale in his own inventory, my guy doesn’t have much to offer, but he is willing to buy almost anything from you at full price. 

To find the merchant you’ll need to be in Novigrad and head to the docks in the north of Silverton. You’ll see him waiting close to the water. The only downside of this merchant is that he doesn’t have many coins to his name, so you need to pick and choose what to sell him. However, you can meditate or come back another time when his crowns are replenished. 

Here’s what’s great about the Merchant at Silverton docks - 

  • He will buy mostly anything from you at full price, giving you the potential to make a lot of money.
