It’s Flippin’ Friday! #41

Yay! It’s Flippin’ Friday! Let the fireworks begin!

Last week, our readers gave us stories about a Super Mario Wilton cake pan, a vintage “How to Run a Lathe” book, a Ralph Lauren tweed jacket, Build-a-Bear dogs with costumes, Keen shoes, a lot of vintage pharmacy bottles, a lot of apothecary bottles, a Simplicity Disney Princess costume sewing pattern, Under Armour clothing, a box of Coby vintage greeting cards, and a lot of Coke Reward bottle caps.  WOWZERS!  I’m always amazed at the variety of items that are shared! Thank you to all that contributed a story last week!

Got a great flip? Share it with us in the comment section below. Its a great way to share that fun moment and an even better way for all of us to learn about a new item to look for in our adventures.

Happy hunting and have a SAFE and Happy 4th of July weekend!

  1. I had pretty good luck with flipping a couple of pieces of costume jewelry last week. One was a little silver and brass dog pin by Far Fetched, the other was a pair of Laurel Burch lizard earrings. I think I paid fifty cents for each of them and used them myself for several years. They’ve just been hanging out among my bits and bobs for a while, so I put them up for auction last week. The pin went for $8.50 and the earrings for almost $12. Laurel Burch especially seems to be something to keep an eye out for, as long as it’s in good condition.

    Bought an unopened set of Winnie the Pooh curtains for $5 at a thrift shop, sold for $20. Easy too. Description was already on the package. No real research needed. No measurements to take. Not breakable! Not heavy.

    I got a vintage Macarame Sunset book for free from an estate sale. It sold for $8.00. I would not have picked the book if I had not read your blog. Thank you.

  4. I FINALLY have a big flip to report! I have been waiting and waiting! I bought a set of Rogers Brothers 1847 silverplate flatware for $5.00 at an estate sale. It is the pattern Silver Lace from the year 1968. It ended up being a complete set. I am breaking it into two 4 place setting sets and also selling the hostess set and completer set. I put up one of the 4 place setting sets at $199.99 and accepted an offer of $160 for it 6 days later after a ton of views. I will put up the other set later this month.

    I had a few flips lately that I learned about from this blog! I sold a lot of 8 Domino magazines for $43. This magazine is no longer in print, which I believe I read here months ago.

    Also, I sold a little manual to a junior chemistry set from 1958 for $14.50. I bought it at my library booksale for 25 cents since I convinced them it should be priced as a children’s book although now I feel bad I didn’t pay the normal $1 non-fiction price. Didn’t you also blog about old manuals? Wow, what a good student am I. I’m convinced it’s also because I enjoy a good cup of joe late at night. 😉

    I picked up a New in the box set of miniature metal figurines for the role playing game WarHammer. (think Dungeons & Dragons). The idea is you put them together and paint them then use them in your game. I paid about $1 and sold them for $31. 🙂

    I bought a nice lady head vase for 50 cents. Unfortunately one eyelash was broken. I priced them on ebay, and was surprised that most were selling for under 20.00. I listed it for 9.99, sold it for 47.00! Woo hoo!

    In the last 2 weeks I have sold 2 sets of Melmac dishes. The first I picked up at a garage sale, several pink coffee cups with saucers. Paid $2.00 and sold 2 days later for $14.00. A few days later I found a set at Goodwill that had plates, cups,saucers and bowls. It was $12.50 for the whole set and I put it back several times because I didn’t want to pay that much. In the end I bought it and was glad I did when it sold for $47.00 in one day. Now I am on the lookout for more of this hot dinnerware!

    I sold two vintage twin size flat sheets with Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs for $60. Character sheets seem to sell well for me especially the girl ones. Use cutter and fabric in your description as some people use the sheets for projects.

    I bought a beautiful, large, original oil painting by an unknown artist at an estate sale for $7. I planned to keep it but it was too big for the spot where I was going to hang it. I listed it on craigslist as a “make an offer” item and within a couple of days I had an interested party. They asked me how much I wanted and I said $40. Sold it to them within the hour. Coulda, shoulda, woulda… might have been able to get more but since I went the craigslist route, but there were no fees and I had cash in hand at the time of the sale. I’m happy with it. 🙂
