Default Can you make decent money flipping items from thrift stores?

The goodwills near my location have pretty bad reviews saying that their prices match Walmart's. What do you guys do to obtain stock to sell on eBay? And how do I know it's worth buying and if it will sell?

Research is key OP - tough to make decent money on flipping thrift items unless you do VOLUME.

Some people may sell you info if you're willing to purchase - just be aware.

you need a good eye if you buy at a charity shop and you might find something that will turn a profit, eg. a brand named item. If you list something long enough, you should sell it, it could take relisting a lot. Is it a business model? no, too hit and miss.....

Some people make huge money like this. Like anything, you have to know your market. How do you know what to buy and for how much you ask? Research. Price items out, and check and see what they are selling for.

No magic crystal ball, especially when flipping other peoples trash into other peoples treasures.
