Recycler or Reseller (or Both!): How Reselling Can Be Good For The Planet Along With Your Wallet As a reseller, do you consider yourself a recycler as well? Someone who rescues items that are no longer wanted? This is something that I hadn't given too much thought to, but then a couple weeks ago we shared this image on Facebook and Instagram: It was a simple yet funny meme that had a lot of people who related. I mean...

Selling On Facebook Marketplace: How We Turned $115 Into $2,250 In One Hour This past weekend was a good weekend to be a flipper! We sell about 85% of our items on eBay, but this past weekend was 100% selling on Facebook Marketplace. The pros to selling on Facebook Marketplace are that it's local so you don't have to ship the items and there are no fees associated with it. Some cons are since it's a local app,...

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...

Today's post is a continued series of furniture flips that were done by YOU guys! Last year we held a contest looking for 10 furniture pieces to feature on our website, and we loved this patio chair redo. This project was done by Mitch and Melissa Haynie from American as Texas. They picked up these two old patio chairs that had definitely seen better days. They were being held together by tape and had no seat cushions....

This week's flip of the week was another freebie! We have picked up several of these lately which has been pretty cool. Melissa really gets the credit for this one because it was her contact that scored us the deal. We were able to get this Princess Carriage Bed for $0! And sold it on eBay for $589! That price included free shipping. I thought I would be able to send it in a box, but the two long...

  Last week was a pretty great week to be a flipper! We sold a total of $2,174 worth of inventory across most of the selling platforms last week. We sold on eBay, Craigslist, OfferUp, and Facebook Marketplace. About 90% of our sales usually come from eBay, but this week was a more diverse week. We sold 7 items to make that $2,174 - one item every day of the week which was kind of funny. Here they are...

The first find in our flea market flipping challenge sold this week! In case you missed it, here's how the flipping challenge works: Find a used item for $25 or under, flip it on eBay (or other online source), and then take the flip money, reinvest it and flip it again. Keep doing it (and don't touch the money) until the end of this year! For example: If you find an item for $15, then list it and...
