Furniture repurposing is not our expertise (yet), and we have expressed that in the past. But, it is something we want to sta rt doing more of. We recently held a contest this spring to find 10 fantastic flips that we will be putting together in a publication with tutorials very soon. I did want to share with you one of my projects that I completed that I was pretty proud of: an entertainment center repurpose. Affiliate...

It has officially been a year since I started doing this Flea Market flipping gig full time. Wow. What a year it's been! I have always loved being an eBay seller (for the past 20 years), but I wasn't sure if I could really support a family of 5 with it.  In case you missed it, I quit my job in May last year to do our side hustle gig full time. I wish I could say...

Can I tell you how excited I am about this new project I just finished! (This is Melissa writing this week by the way.) I have been trying to figure out how we are going to travel and live in a small space with 3 kiddos (since we are moving into a 5th wheel soon), and still let them have some of their toys. I really wanted to bring some of our Duplo legos because they...

Another month has flown by. I swear the older I get, the faster time goes. Anyone else feel the same way? I have to be honest, these past two months sales have been a little slower than normal. Don't get me wrong, we have still done well, but since this is our full time gig and no longer just our side income we would like to see the numbers a little higher. This is when...

I know I am a little behind for this post, but our March flea market flipping income report totals are in! They have been in now for a few weeks, and we are about to close out April in another week, but we finally are putting together our most recent flips for you all to check out. We decided to start posting our income reports for several reasons. The first one is to keep ourselves accountable....

Being sick is NEVER fun. But when you are your own boss it can be especially stressful because you don't get to take paid 'sick days'. Sure you can take off usually, but that usually means you aren't getting paid. At least that is the case with any service type professions. You can make some great money in some professions by being your own boss, but when you stop working you stop making money. Check...

Low Budget Furniture Flips Looking for some inspiration for low budget furniture repurposes that look incredible and are super budget friendly? Then this post is for you! Hi! This post is written by Melissa so if you have been around awhile you are used to seeing posts from my husband Rob. We do this flipping gig together, but I tend to gravitate a little more toward the furniture than he does, so I thought I would compile a...

Here is our Flea Market Flipper income report for last month. You may wonder why we post our income reports online, because it's kind of a scary thing to do. For one it helps us stay accountable and make sure we are listing enough items each month, and for two we want to help others be successful at their flipping business. I have seen several bloggers and entrepreneurs post their online income reports and it...
