How I Made $200 on EBay in Only 6 Minutes!

How I Made $200 on EBay in Only 6 Minutes!

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. ย The clip came off the back of the boat and hit me in the back of the head! My friends grabbed me out of the water and I had to go get checked out at the ER. Everything turned out fine but I haven't really messedย with a parachute/parasail harness since. I probably should get back out there soon! ๐Ÿ˜‰

Back to my find last week. I saw the harness and I thought it looked expensive. I wasn't familiar with the brand and couldn't find out if it was worth anything, but it looked expensive so I took a chance on it for $10. I listed it this week on eBay for $200 and it was purchased inย SIX minutes! SIX! That makes me happy and sad all at the same time. Happy because I made $190 in a short time this week, but sad because if it sold that fast I probably could have asked a lot more for it. I always end up kicking myself for those kinds of flips! ha!

Usually when I buyย itemsย I have an idea if they will make money or not, but sometimes I will take a risk for $20 or less. Check out HERE for items that I NEVER buy at the flea market.ย 

Have you ever been parachuting or parasailing? Any fun stories to share? ๐Ÿ™‚$200 in 6 minutes on eBay

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.
