Welcome To Flea Market Flipper! We are glad you are here!

Some of our highlights

Over the past 20 years we have have come across some fun items that we have bought and sold! Some of our favorites are:

We have had several items that flip quick, and several that we sit on for a while. Our fastest flip with a significant return was my mechanical prosthetic leg. We purchased it for $30 from the flea market, and sold it for $1,000 with in two hours of posting it.

Our normal work week consists of 1-2 hours at the flea market on Saturday and Sunday, maybe an hour at other thrift stores and yard sales during the week, and about another 15 hours of cleaning/fixing & posting items and shipping them out per week. Sometimes it is more and sometimes it is less, but on average we spend between 20-25 hours on flipping items per week.

I am a big water enthusiast! I grew up on a lake and I am very comfortable in our Florida waters. My two little girls have already been skiing and surfing in the lake behind the boat. They already have a love for the water like their dad. Melissa doesn't love being in the water as much, but she still loves being on it (on a boat). Almost every weekend we are out at my sisters house skiing on their lake. I believe in living outside as much as possible. Life is too short to be stuck indoors all the time!

Our Story

My passion for buying and selling started when I was a young kid. I have six older sisters and since there were so many of us to provide for, my mom would go to thrift stores and garage sales to find clothes and toys for us. Saturday yard sales were a big to-do at my house. We would get out the local newspaper Friday night and circle all of the good looking sales we wanted to go to. My mom would buy items for our family, but also bought things to resell and make some extra money. (7 kids cost a lot!)

Melissa and I were married in 2007 and she quickly learned my passion for buying and selling used items. We both always treated it as a hobby that made us a little extra cash now and then. That is until our first daughter was born. Oh how kids change everything! Melissa cut her personal training business way down to part time so I had to pick up the slack by selling more. It's funny what you can accomplish out of necessity.

Last March our 3rd child was born and in May I took the leap to doing this full time. It was crazy timing, but God always has things in the works. Last year ended up being our biggest year at $133,00 in sales! We couldn't believe it. God is good.

We started this blog to encourage others to step up their game and increase their income from selling online (we mainly use eBay). We created an all inclusive online course to teach you the ins and outs of buying and reselling and how to make the most bang for your buck! Check out what Flipper University is all about!

We are excited you stopped in, and would love to have you as a part of our flipping adventure! Drop us your e-mail to catch some of our latest flips, and as a thank you we would love to give you a list of 4 tools that helped me turn $40 into $1,000 recently. You can get that list HERE.
