Edit: I’ve modified my goal to be an “Online Re-Selling Profits Goal” for reasons explained in this post. Let’s just saying buying a house changes things!

Tonka Trucks

Tonka Tough Man oh man this flip had me excited! Vintage/antique toys really aren’t my expertise, but the instant I saw this group I knew that I had a good deal.

I’m going to ask any readers of the blog to bear with me.  I’m very good at figuring out computerish things, but I don’t do it regularly and I’m sure I’ll muck it up somehow!

Dollar Flipper Ebay Flip 4 Comments

Video games are the bread and butter of a lot of eBay resellers.  These items fit perfectly in padded mailers, can be shipped first class, are found in large lots at garage sales or rummage sales, and are very collectible.
