- A security tower they bought for $6,200 and flipped for $25,000 just one month later.

She even created a course called Flipper University that teaches students how to become a successful flipper. Melissa says her students can expect to make $500-$2,500 per month in their first year.
Students of Flea Market Flipper have said, “I want to give a quick shout out to Robert for opening my mind to selling big, bulky items on eBay. I got both a scanner and receiver for $17 and sold shortly after they were listed for $399 and $129! In the past, I would have passed on these items because I would have no clue how to ship them. Thanks again, Rob!” –Anthony F., Flea Market Flipper Student
