Recent flips

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...

This post is the second in a series of furniture flips that were submitted in a contest a few months back. We selected 10 awesome furniture flips as the winners. We are recognizing each piece in it's own shout out/post (in no particular order). This beautiful hall table refinish was done by Ferris Mueller, who shares her fun ventures on her Facebook page Dirt Floor Furniture. We loved this piece for several reasons. One of those...

Another month as a reseller in the books! September was an interesting month because we had an emergency trip take place. We decided to evacuate from hurricane Irma and take our 5th wheel up to Michigan. We had to do some title work on our camper anyways in Michigan, so decided to just go and do it then and outrun a hurricane. We ended up being gone for two weeks so that cut into our work...

Since our last post/flip, we've gotten a lot of questions about teak wood. Mainly how to identify and restore teak wood. I am sure it has sparked an interest in many because the ROI on this teak patio set was 2,500%! We spent $100 on a set of 4 chairs, a love seat, 4 bar stools and a table that we found on Offer Up. That probably sounds so low for all of that furniture,...

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...

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...

I know I am a little late with last month's flipping totals for Flea Market Flipper, but oh well, it's been really crazy around here. Better late then never right? :) We totaled over $15,000 in eBay sales for the month of June, with a profit of $12,220! We were really excited about that because for one, it's an awesome month, and two, because we definitely needed it after last month's $1,774 profit month. We...
