this looks good but how do i find the items? I know in thrift stores but any suggestion what to flip?

Some guidelines to follow when choosing items to flip:

  • Stay away from large items if only using ebay. Craigslist and FB marketplace for large items
  • You can ship up to 70lbs in a large padded envelope for flat rate ~$8.00
  • If you will only make $30 or less from the item, don’t bother. Not worth the time listing and shipping.
  • Only sell items where you will make ~$50 profit. never spend a lot on anything to if you plan on flipping
  • buy low, sell high
  • older antiques and collectibles will well, along with new premium brands like Coach and Louis Vuitton
