Are you ready to start selling your furniture flips? I have been sharing furniture flips for years and now that I have my furniture flipping course and private community for furniture flippers, I get to teach others how to flip furniture successfully and quicker than it took me to learn all the things. One of the questions I get asked a lot is where to sell flipped furniture pieces.
This question has a lot of answers, but I am going to list the most common places where people sell furniture pieces and some options you probably haven’t thought about.
Where To Sell Flipped Furniture Pieces
Facebook Marketplace is one of the most popular platforms to sell flipped furniture pieces. You have the option of selling locally or shipping your furniture pieces on FBMP.
Craigslist is another easy platform to sell on. This is more for local sales. One of the complaints I hear most about Craigslist is that people always want to pay less than what you are asking. You don’t have to take their lower price offer. Stick to your price. If someone really wants your piece, they will pay it.
A lot of furniture flippers sell their pieces through their Etsy shop. Etsy is a great option because you can reach a wider audience. One thing to note is that there are fees with Etsy. Make sure you understand all the fees before starting your shop.
I teach everyone who takes my course and who is inside my private furniture flipping community that it is important to have a social media presence around your flipping business. Instagram is a great platform for furniture flippers. As you grow an Instagram following and share what you do, you will have people wanting to buy your finished pieces before you even get them done. I have sold many pieces just by sharing them on Instagram.
FB Business Page:
Just like Instagram, Facebook is another great platform for furniture flippers. Start a business page for your flipping business. Again, you will have followers who will want to buy your pieces just by sharing what you are doing.
There are many options for selling your furniture flips.
Tiktok is another platform that a lot of furniture flippers use. Just like IG and FB, Tiktok could be a great option for selling your flips.
This is something I have wanted to try but we don’t have any good booth options where we live. I know many people who have had amazing success selling their pieces in booths. Check your area and see what kind of booth options you have available.
Once I started flipping furniture, I was hooked. So much so that I was picking up more pieces than we needed in our home. So, I started hosting sales at our home twice a year. These have been very successful for us. It is like setting up shop twice a year without the overhead of renting a place. I love these “shop” weekends and look forward to them every year. It is a great way to build your local customer base. I have grown an email list of local people who want to be notified when we have our sales. These people are our best customers!
Along with growing a social media following, I always tell the students in my course and private community that starting an email list is so important. We don’t own our social media accounts. If Instagram decided to stop tomorrow, you would be out of luck with no way to communicate with your audience. An email list is yours to keep. You do own it. With an email list, you can stay in contact with the people no matter what happens on social media.
You can get a local list going like I have for our sales or you can start a list for those who aren’t local like I have as well. Email the people on your list when you have new pieces for sale. You can send them emails to share what you are working on and will have available soon. There are so many ways to use your email lists to get more sales. This is something we talk a lot about inside my private community.
Brick and Mortar:
Having your own shop is another option for selling your furniture pieces.
Check for local markets in your area. They are another great option for “setting up shop” without having year-long overhead to worry about.
These are all great options for selling your furniture flips. Each one has something to offer and each one has its drawbacks. You just need to decide on what you are most comfortable with and how you would like to sell your pieces. Do you long for a storefront? Do you want to ship your pieces? Are you wanting to start by selling locally only? Ask yourself these questions and really think about what you want out of your business so you can narrow down the options.
Do You Want To Make Money Flipping Furniture?
After twenty years of doing this, I am still picking up pieces when I can find them because I love the creative outlet, but I am now coaching other furniture flippers on how to make more money in their business. If you are someone who is looking to start and/or grow a furniture flipping business, I would love to help you. There are ways to make money in your business beyond painting a piece of furniture. Once I learned that, my business flourished. Don’t waste your time trying to figure it out on your own.
