Profit

This past weekend was a good one for flipping items on both eBay and Facebook marketplace. We sold 5 items for a total of $1,305! And we even managed to squeeze in a quick 24 hour trip to Atlanta for an engagement party as well. (We love the flexibility selling stuff online gives us). We sold two of the items on eBay and three of them on Facebook marketplace. We typically cross post a lot of...

It is no secret that I love finding things for a good deal! Getting something at a reduced cost gets me energized. What even gets me more excited is when I can turn that good deal into a profit. Sometimes I love buying things at a good deal and keep them for my family as you can see in this past blog post, but much of the time I enjoy buying things and reselling them at...

Today we have a special treat! We got to chat with our friend and Flipper University student Anthony Frye and see how he's doing with his reselling business. Anthony has been reselling for about a year and a half now, but didn't get really serious about it until about 4 months ago. He had been doing it part time (only about once per week) and mostly selling clothing and making a few dollars on each sale. After...

I always seem to be a little late with these monthly reports, but I guess this month we can blame a hurricane for throwing things off. This past month we totaled $5,260 in sales, and $4,729 in profit! Not one of our higher months like when we hit $12,220 flipping items for profit, but still not bad for being gone for 3 weeks of the month. (This is also when budgeting for a variable income comes...

I love so many things about this flip. Of course I love the huge profit that we made from it, (not all flips have quite this large of ROI), but I also loved finding this one and cleaning it up. Once I spotted it on Offer Up, I knew there was potential to make some money, I just didn't know exactly how much. This post may contain affiliate links.

Last month was a whirlwind of a month. We went from trying to frantically sell everything and move into our 5th wheel by July 24th, to being approached by a production company mid July and shoot a promo for a reality show. So now we are living in limbo and not exactly sure what is going on. Ha. We have still been doing flea market flips, as that is our primary income, but our focus has...

Do you use PayPal for online transactions, personal or business? Have you always trusted them to keep your money safe against any fraudulent activity? If you use PayPal regularly (I still do daily), this post isn't meant to scare you, but to help you if you ever find yourself in a situation like I did: with your PayPal account frozen. I debated whether or not to share my story about PayPal on our blog. The reason...

Can you believe summer is already coming to a close? Sorry to be the bearer of bad news to some of you. I was not trying to ruin the end of your summer. (Although some of you may be welcoming school starting again. :) )   Many of you are starting to get in the back to school mode if you have kids, and maybe you have been thinking about things you can do as a...

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...

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...
