What We Flipped To Make $12,200 In One Week Of Flipping Flea Market Items


God is good!

This past week has been phenomenal for sales!

We totaled $12,200 in sales in ONE WEEK!

Ok, that’s a lot of exclamation points, but this flipping gig just excites me!

And I feel blessed that I get to do what I love every day. Is it work? Of course, but it’s what I enjoy doing so it rarely feels like work.

Even if I had all the money in the world and could retire without ever thinking about money again – I would still want to flip items. That’s how much I love it

I know there are a few of you out there like me – who love finding great deals and reselling items to people who will value them again.

I know you get me. 🙂 It’s in our blood.

Ok, let’s jump into what we sold!

The first two items are a part of the 2019 Flipping Challenge. This challenge has me fired up this year! We will be doing an update very soon.

These both sold the same day too!

This medical vest sold on eBay for $1,600. We picked it up at the flea market for $35

This oxygen machine sold on eBay for $600. We picked up this one from the flea market the same weekend for $25.

The last item that sold on eBay this week was this outboard motor part. I picked it up for $10 and sold it for $200.

The next two items were both exercise equipment. (Exercise equipment has been HOT in February!)

A friend gave me this shoulder press – he needed it gone and said as long as I could get it that day I could have it. We sat on it for a little while because I didn’t list it… oops. But once we listed it we sold it on Facebook Marketplace in about 2 months.

You may remember the lot of spin bikes we got as well.

We sold the last of them on Facebook Marketplace this week for $300! (Guess that means no more family spin classes…)

Another item we got for free sold this week as well. It was a commercial refrigerator for a restaurant. Someone gave it to us because they couldn’t store it any longer and just needed it gone. (We get a couple good deals like this because we are willing to go pick them up and store them).

It sold to a local restaurant for $2,800!

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.

    Hey Rob, I also picked up one of those oxygen machines (in great shape with low hours) but within hours on putting it on ebay they pulled it off citing the fact that the purchaser would need a prescription to buy it therefore I’m not allowed to sell it. Despite that I saw plenty of them that had been sold. Is there a trick to how you were able to do it?

      Hi Grant! No trick. But sometimes they pull them and sometimes they don’t. It stinks because obviously people want them at a lower price then they can get new, but eBay doesn’t want the liability of medical machines. We are currently working on another platform we can sell medical equipment on. Will keep you posted!

    Great work guys!
    I notice all the wine bottles behind you. No wonder you are both so happy (and the kids so quiet.)
