Flippin’ Friday-#97

It’s Flippin’ Friday again! And boy, have we had some great flips lately! Wow!! You are really going to love reading about these…

Last week, we had flip stories about a diecast “Caterpillar”tractor,  a container full of Littlest Pet Shop figures, a set of Marghab Madeira embroidered placemats and napkins, 2012 McDonald’s My Little Pony Rainbow Dash,Playmobil 5.5cm Small Brown Pony Horse Long Ivory Mane & Tail, a huge stack of Elizabeth Hiddleson crochet pattern booklets, one hardwood pool cue in case, a Better Homes and Gardens cookbook, and a pair of vintage suede Converse tennis shoes.

These  will definitely get people excited about garage sales and thrift stores!

If you have a great flip you’d like to share, just write it in the comments section below! We love reading them! Just be sure to include your item, what you paid, and what it sold for in the end.

    Okay, I will never top this–it’s my own Antiques Roadshow kinda moment. I went to an estate sale several years ago and bought a blackened metal box in a basement room. It wasn’t tagged and when I was checking out they said it was $10. It sat in my basement for a week or two and I decided to clean it. It turned out to be sterling and had chinese characters on the bottom and a chinese name in English. Flash forward to this June–the box sold at auction for $3000 and had 15 bids before the live auction. It was a beautiful example of what’s known as Chinese Export Silver. I paid a 20% seller’s premium, so I came out $2390 ahead.

    Wowza! Love the sterling chinese box story!
    Regular sales on my bread and butter: Shoes, bags & purses, some maternity wear.
    This wouldn’t be a good flip, except it ended up going to Australia (they paid shipping, yay!): Blue Willow Pattern Mug w/Georgian Ear Handle $18 (paid .49!). Usually I earn a lousy profit of $9-10 on breakables due to shipping costs and insurance.
    And a gamble that paid off: 2007 Pokemon Trading Card Game World Championship COMPETITOR Yellow Carry Bag bought for about a $1 at GW Outlet, sold for $30 w/ Free Shipping. I couldn’t find another one like it on eBay, except for a 2006 bag that wasn’t embroidered with a huge ‘COMPETITOR’ on it!
