Recent flips

Another month in the books! We had a pretty low month last month in eBay sales, and I debated posting about it or not. I have been doing monthly reports for some time now and I thought it's only fair to post the great months along with the not so great months. So here it is. This post may contain affiliate links. Check out our full disclosure for more details. I decided to do income reports this...

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...

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...

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...
