Two Flea Market Flips Bring In $6,500 Last month we had two awesome sales within two weeks of each other. Two flea market flips that were a total investment of $325 that made us $6,500! That's a 2,000% return on investment! I stand by my statement that I don't know where else you can get these kinds of returns! These two items were lawn mowers. They were not just any run-of-the mill mowers, but commercial stand on...

How To File A Shipping Insurance Claim If you have been an eBay or Amazon seller for any length of time, most likely you have had to deal with a shipping insurance claim at one point or another. Because let's face it, sometimes the carriers don't care as much about our packages as we do.. via GIPHY Hopefully this doesn't happen to you and your packages arrive safely. But if something does arrive damaged, no reason to panic. As long...

It's no secret that I love flipping items. But I especially love it when there are days like this one when a few flipping sales can equal a couple grand! This 24 hours had 3 items that sold, that equaled $2,400! That's a good day! All three items were bought from OfferUp. (It's starting to be one of my favorite places to buy things from!) Two of them sold on Facebook Marketplace and one on eBay. We have...

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...

*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...

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! I can't wait until Christmas morning! I am such a little...

During my stroll down the flea market aisles last week, I came across a parachute harness that intrigued me. Extreme sports interest me, but I have never been sky diving. I went parasailing about 12 years ago, with my own rig on my own boat and it ended up with a trip to the emergency room. Apparently I had hooked up the parasail upside down so I ended up going up backwards.  The clip came...

I am very excited about writing this post today! I just came out with my very first eBook! It's more of a guide than a book, as it is informative, but not overwhelming. (It is 17 pages to be exact). I have noticed over the years, some people don't have a lot of extra capital to start buying items to sell. I didn't want this to stop them from being able to make a profit. I...

       Alright everyone, here's the best flip of 2016 so far!! (I have a few more flips in the works with some serious potential so I'll keep you posted). A pair of Seadoo wave runners! I purchased this set a few weeks back and sold them over the weekend.         I received a call a couple weeks ago from a close friend who told me his employer was trying to sell the...
