It’s Flippin’ Friday! #51

It’s once again “Flippin’ Friday”…and you know what that means! Interesting flip stories! Hooray!

Last week, we had stories about a Freemason book called Heredom, a Baby Gap coat, a Banana Republic coat, and Primatene Mist refills.  Thanks for your contributions!

So what flips have YOU had this week? Just write them in the comments section below. Include your item name and what it sold for in your story…we love them!

And if you have a selling venue and want to add a listing to the “Show and Sell” on the right, check out yesterday’s post on how to do that! Great way to showcase some of your great listings!

Have a great weekend and happy hunting (and selling!)!

    I had a couple of fun/easy flips this week. I’ve been buying up Scrabble games and had finally put a lot together of 498 tiles. Almost 5 complete sets. Sold within a couple of days for $50 with Free Shipping. The hardest part was counting the tiles. Easy flip, easy money. If I see a scrabble game under $2 I grab it.

    Also I don’t remember if I’ve mentioned this one before. Vintage wood pant hangers. I’ve found them a couple of times and they do really well. This past week I had two listings each with 2 Setwell brand pant hangers. Bought them for 50 cents a piece and sold them for 10 dollars a pair.

  2. I picked up a pair of Dansko leather shoes for $1.00 and sold them for $25.00 this week. Not a bad flip!

  3. I purchased a Disney Dreamtime Carousel while on vacation back in May. I kept putting off getting it listed.( Bad me.) I listed it one night, late and when I got up the next morning it was sold!! I paid $1 for it and it sold for $13. Not a big profit, I probably listed it too low, but it sold quickly. I am slowly learning that when something sells too quickly, I probably listed it too low. Research before listing is my new mantra.

    I bought a vintage wooden tripod at a sale for $5.00. I thought it was for a camera, but after some research learned it was a for surveying land. Sold for $55.00 after 17 bids. Pretty happy with that flip. On a sadder note I sold an owl on etsy. Didn’t do my research and after I had mailed it learned that the owl was made by Bitossi, a very collectible Italian pottery maker of mid century design. Sold for $6.00 and worth over $125.00. Lesson of the day? AlLWAYS look up your stuff before you sell it!!

    had just mailed. The word was Bitossi. Seems that Bitossi is a highly collectible Italian made pottery. Turns out that $6.00 owl was worth a lot more, like over $100.00 more. Live and learn, and remember to alwar

    stamped on the bottom of the owl I had just mailed. The word was Bi

    I would never have thought of vintage pants hangers! I picked up a bunch at an estate sale to use for myself, now I’m going to research them and see if they’re worth $$$! What category do you sell them in?
