Do you like the look of distressed furniture? How about white distressed furniture? I am starting to get on a new kick of repurposing furniture - I think it's pretty fun! Today we have winner #3 in our furniture flipping contest series - and it's a fantastic flip! These bedside tables were beautifully done by Cecilly Bumatay. She is a successful realtor in New York, and when she is showing houses, she sometimes falls in love with some...

Is anyone else experiencing how fast time is going? Or is it just me? I am sitting down to write up last month's flipping totals, and the Christmas season is already here! Christmas music has been on in our house now since the end of the summer, so I guess everyone is finally catching on. ;) If you are new around here, we wanted to let you know why we post these reseller income reports. If you are...

Looking to save money on gifts this Christmas season so you can stick to your Christmas budget? Wanting to be more frugal now so you don't get slammed with a huge credit card bill next month? You have come to the right place! Christmas is my absolute FAVORITE time of year! I may or may not have been playing Christmas music around the house since September. I am not sure if it is the kid in me that...

Have you ever gone to ship something, only to find that you don't have the right size box for shipping? You don't want to pay extra to ship a larger box, but you don't really want to buy another smaller box either. I'm here to show you that you don't have to! If you have a box too large to fit your item, you can cut it down to the size you need. It sounds...

Since our last post/flip, we've gotten a lot of questions about teak wood. Mainly how to identify and restore teak wood. I am sure it has sparked an interest in many because the ROI on this teak patio set was 2,500%! We spent $100 on a set of 4 chairs, a love seat, 4 bar stools and a table that we found on Offer Up. That probably sounds so low for all of that furniture,...

I always seem to be a little late with these monthly reports, but I guess this month we can blame a hurricane for throwing things off. This past month we totaled $5,260 in sales, and $4,729 in profit! Not one of our higher months like when we hit $12,220 flipping items for profit, but still not bad for being gone for 3 weeks of the month. (This is also when budgeting for a variable income comes...

Last month was a whirlwind of a month. We went from trying to frantically sell everything and move into our 5th wheel by July 24th, to being approached by a production company mid July and shoot a promo for a reality show. So now we are living in limbo and not exactly sure what is going on. Ha. We have still been doing flea market flips, as that is our primary income, but our focus has...

Can you believe summer is already coming to a close? Sorry to be the bearer of bad news to some of you. I was not trying to ruin the end of your summer. (Although some of you may be welcoming school starting again. :) )   Many of you are starting to get in the back to school mode if you have kids, and maybe you have been thinking about things you can do as a...

Last week was a pretty great sales week! We had one day in particular that was a high sale day. We sold 3 items for a total of $1,070!  Two were sold on eBay and one was sold through a Facebook selling group. The first item we sold was a coin operated arcade game. I had brought it out at our yard sale in the week prior and put a $350 sticker on it. It didn't...
