Flippin’ Friday-#102

Welcome back to Flippin’ Friday and another chance to find out what people are buying…….and selling!

Last week, we had flip stories about a plush kangaroo kids costume, a lot of baby and toddler clothes, a ladies American Eagle leather belt with a heart buckle, an Alabama National championship hat, 5 rolls of unused film, two bags of wooden sewing spools, and four vintage Syracuse China coffee mugs in Lake Placid pattern (pine cones & boughs).

Great flips everybody! Thank you so much for sharing your stories!

    sooo I was flipping through magazines at the thrift store and I found a few I wanted a magazine/book thing on canning and preserving–the piles are always freebies so I grab a few here and there–I brought it home an realized I am far beyond it–listed it on my Facebook yardsale group and the darn thing sold in under 3 minutes for 5 bucks–not a lot of cash BUT free five bucks who’s pass it up?? not me!

    I also bought a little shadow box thing for our walls and it just didn’t work right–sold it for 10 bucks–paid 2–also on my yardsale group on Facebook

    found a Necromunda game at a thrift store for 1 buck and turns out it’s really hard to find especially the cardboard buildings….one sold like it JUST the pieces mind you for 139.00….listed mine and I already have an opening bid and 4 watchers–I’ll let you know how it goes it has a WHOLE week left

    Last year at my favorite thrift store my daughter found 4 vintage tabletop RPG games. All complete with the game pieces in the box and everything. The only real problem was that a zealous thrift store clerk had used Sharpie on the front to mark the $1 price. Purchased anyway and tried our best to remove the Sharpie from cardboard. Two of the album games sold for $40 each but the big one, Dragon Quest, sold yesterday. It included maps, tokens, guide book, everything but the dice and miniatures which the player would probably already have. I have had it listed for almost a year and it finally sold for $215 – almost the full asking price ($225). Yeah for slow dimes.

    WOOHOOO that’s a great flip!

  4. It’s a little flip – and I stalled for ages in listing it.
    In the spring I bid on a basket lot of Cross Stitch kits at a local quilt guild charity auction, I sold the brand new kits and made back my investment within a month.
    Included in the lot were some (barely) started lap quilt kits.
    I listed the Bucilla Wings of Spring Garden kit as Used and noted the partially stitched condition etc.
    It sold within 24 hours for my $27.99 asking price, and since i’d already cleared my initial costs this was all profit (after fees etc)!

    I found a Levi denim jean jacket at GW a few months back. I bought it because it had all this cool distressing and embroidered and sewn details all over. It had a chinese label sewn above the leather Levi tag inside the jacket. I didn’t think much of it, just thought it was cool, and decided a few weeks ago to pull it out and list it since the weather is getting cooler. I took another look at the jacket while taking pics and noticed in faint letters on the inside it said “The Great China Wall” Turns out this is a design firm in LA that makes (or used to make, their website was down, so maybe no longer in business?) cool handbags, jackets etc. Long story short I sold it last week for $100 bucks! (paid 4.95) The bad news is I have yet to get paid, but it had 6 watchers before it was finally sold so if I have to relist it, hopefully it will sell a second time. But keep your fingers crossed for me that I don’t have to relist 🙂
