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...

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...

*UPDATED 3-4-2017* With all these fun finds and flips, people often ask me where I keep all my items. I have done this for the past 20 years so the places I store my items have changed over time.  Back when I was in my late teens and early 20's and living with my parents still, I would keep it all in their garage apartment. Once I had moved out and on my own, I lived in a...

Last week was a pretty great sales week! We had one day in particular that was a high sale day. We sold 3 items for a total of $1,070!  Two were sold on eBay and one was sold through a Facebook selling group. The first item we sold was a coin operated arcade game. I had brought it out at our yard sale in the week prior and put a $350 sticker on it. It didn't...

We made $133,054 in sales last year flipping flea market, thrift store and yard sale items. Holy cow! We more than tripled our 2015 income totals ($42K). In May of 2016 I decided to quit my 'regular' job, and focus more on flipping items full time. It was a decision...

Don't you love to hear that cha-ching sound of document.write('eBay'); eBaygoing off? If you don't have an eBay account yet, or have never sold anything on it, let me tell you they nailed it with the notification sound. When I hear that sound I get so excited! (Even after all these {20} years of selling eBay flips.) Things get really exciting when it goes off multiple times in a day. Last week I heard that sound 4 times in...

Well, they have been in for a few weeks now, but getting them on paper (online?) has taken longer with the craziness of a lot of travel and the fast approaching holidays!

Well that was a long road trip! We covered over 3,000 miles through 12 states in two weeks time, and made $5,600 on eBay while doing it.  AND we did it with 3 kids: ages 4, 2, and 8 months! WHEW! They actually were great travelers. They impressed both my wife and I. When they needed a break we would look for a Chick Fil A for lunch or dinner so they could run around on the indoor play...
