Top 10 Most Memorable Flips

top 10 flips

10. Gaggia Espresso Machine – This was one I sat on for about a year, so it didn’t make the top 10 for being flipped the fastest, but it was a very original item. And even though I am not a coffee drinker, I liked the way it looked.cappucccino machine9. Concept2 rower – I originally purchased this exercise machine for my wife to use for her personal training clients. While she liked it, she only has room for a couple of the machines that I have purchased for her, and so she told me to sell it.

7. Fire fighting masks – I bought 30 of these masks from the flea market and ended up using eBay to sell them to a fire fighter who teaches new firemen. This was a great purchase as they were a pretty fast turnover.

6. NordicTrack – This one made the list because it was one of the purchases that really started it all.  You can read more about the NordicTracks I sold when I was 18 and how they brought me a good chunk of change.


5. Lobster tank – This one makes the top 10 list because it was such a different buy.  I found this at a thrift store for $100.  It came from a restaurant that had closed down and donated it to the store.  I bought it and posted it on eBay.  It was sold to a restaurant owner in South Florida for $1,500 and he came and picked it up.  It was about a 4-week turnover.

4. Bobcat – This was one of my favorite flips! The reason I loved it so much was because I was able to use this around my house a lot before I sold it for a great profit! I have a couple boats and random large items in my back yard, and I was able to move things around very easily with the bobcat! It also came in very handy for a few yard sales! I bought it from a friend of a friend for $3,000 and ended up selling it to someone overseas for $9,000.  The buyer never saw the bobcat; he had someone pick it up and put it in a container to ship it overseas.


3. Breathing vest – I have bought and sold three of these machines now.  This makes the top three because the first one I purchased I flipped in 3 days.  I bought it at the flea market and posted it on eBay and it was purchased the following day.  FullSizeRender

2. Sleep Number mattresses – These logged the Number 2 spot because they have been bringing me a pretty steady income for the past year!  I wrote a whole post dedicated to my purchase of 60 Sleep Number mattresses HERE. I paid $60 per mattress, and they sell for an average of $605  per mattress!


1. Prosthetic leg – This makes the number one spot on this Top Ten list because of its uniqueness. My wife posted a picture of it on her Facebook page five years ago when I bought it, and everyone remembers the leg that I sold!  I bought this titanium joint leg at the flea market for $30, and I ended up posting it on eBay and within 3 hours it was sold for $1,000!  That’s a 3,300% return!  The leg below is actually not the leg that I first sold for $1,000.  This was a second leg I purchased (who knew there was a good market for these?) and made $400 of profit.

I grew up in Central Florida and have lived here my whole life. I first got into buying and selling items when I was 16 years old, and have been hooked ever since. It has mostly been a hobby that makes some extra cash, but sometimes it serves as my main income as well. I don't plan on stopping any time soon. I find too many fun toys for my family (or myself), and just love the whole process.
