Default For every public chatteler, probably 10 just flying low, and collecting their dough

I had a blast doing this. Although I don't really enjoy purchasing guru manuals, the Flee Market Flipper seems to know what he's doing. Having a keen eye and knowledge of what items to buy is a gift.

I plan to keep chatteling. It's fun. You make good money and meet interesting people.

Thanks for posting Rob's blog.

He's fun to watch. I like him because he looks for STORED VALUE, not so much for specific things. Pretty diverse buys and flips over the last year.

It has been 20 years since I wrote the original Sprint to Freedom Chattel Report, and we've seen the rise of eBay, Craigslist and now the Offer Up and local sites. Also, TV has given us the Storage Wars, Pawn Stars, Flippers, and several shows and what all of these have in common?


There is only one WRONG way to do it, and that is to lose money. If it makes you a profit, rinse/repeat, scale up, go up the ladder, and there has never been a better time to find something for sale.

Buy it.

FLIP it (or just sell it, ha) for a profit. Make it a weekly habit, and people amaze themselves with the opportunity they have.
