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.
