In a risky job market, with many people under-employed, finding an alternate means of extra cash is invaluable. That means finding a need and filling it, and Rob and Melissa from Flea Market Flippers have done just that.

America is undeniably a materialistic society. Every aspect of our culture requires more things. It may be exercise equipment for your brand-new dojo or a replacement state-of-the-art industrial fridge for your restaurant. There is an open market on more.

What can happen when you purpose to repurpose

Flea Market Flippers take advantage of that fact: rather than targeting houses or property, they seek out objects that have been tossed out as trash. A lot of people do not recognize the potential value that their possessions have for others. As a result, fully functional medical supplies, or scaffolding, or musical equipment are relatively cheap at garage sales. Some are set on the curb for the dumpster truck.

Rob and Melissa track down these diamonds in the rough. They clean them up and post the finished product online where an interested audience seeks them out. Once they bought a patio set for $50 bucks, gave it a fresh coat of paint, and sold it for $2,100. In 2016, 25 hours a week was spent on flipping items, garnishing $133,000 altogether in sales. 

It’s an extremely profitable business, and the Flea Market Flippers are willing to share their trade secrets with SavingsAngel listeners through their Flipper University. Whether it’s a side-gig or a full-time career, this program can help you pay off debt. Or you can beef up your savings accounts and/or pad your emergency fund. Overall it may lower your stress about finances.

SavingsAngel listeners are invited to join the Flipper University Workshop, a free and easy way to discover whether you, too, are a perfect fit for turning trash into treasure.

Listen as Rob lets us in on how they got into flipping and the rest of the story!
