How does one sell special interest items on the Internet anymore? Is that even a thing these days?

As our respective families have finally passed on the last of "our boxes" as they themselves clean out their house, we've been making great strides in our own house to pare down our belongings, donate what we can and save only the items that are truly meaningful.
What's left is a basket full of items that may or may not have "value," mostly from the 80s (my childhood years). These include, for example: an old, functioning Simon game, a full set of matchbox cars with carrying case, a brand new "send-away" Frosted Flakes Tony the Tiger light, etc. Also included are framed, signed photos of David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson (I went through an X-Files phase) and a brand new, in-box 20 piece Mikasa bone China set from my parents' wedding.
I put value in quotes because I'm not hoping to cash in on things like these, but I know I could likely sell them and that they could likely find homes with people who would truly appreciate them versus simply donating them.
So, my question: I've heard rumors that eBay is no longer worthwhile - is that the case? Is Craigslist too shady these days? If so, I'd love your suggestions on the best way to sell or find the people best suited for items with a specific "interest group" these days on the Internet (or in person?)
