For savvy shoppers, thrifting is key but when you are a serious Do-It-Yourself-Guru finding THAT DEAL is priceless. Once you realize how to flip and how much people will actually pay you for it, the flipping becomes addictive! It’s not always easy, as for some, seeing the potential in a rather unattractive or dirty and worn out item might not be visible or enjoyable. However, if you’re crafty, creative and aren’t worried about using a little elbow grease, you might want to check out Redland Market Village for your next project!

Below are a few flips from HGTV that we love!
