Make sure you are thinking outside of the box when you are out shopping for furniture, and don’t buy anything until you have found what you think is perfect.

You will want to look at the stitching on the furniture closely so that you can see how it is put together. If an item has cheap, crooked stitches you will want to pass on it. Be sure to choose options that are very well made, and that will stand up over time.

We all know, furniture flipping is a great way to make some serious cash from the comfort of your home. So let’s dive deep into this article. 

Top 11 Places to Find Furniture to Flip 

Craigslist 

At number 1 is craigslist,

Why

First of all, let’s check the approx monthly traffic this site is getting.

4.1M+, which is why it’s a favorite destination for people who want to sell things for free. The traffic is huge and you can easily crack deals here.

Open your local Craigslist, 

go to the “furniture” section or type in what kind of furniture you want or what city/state you’d like to focus on.

Let’s say you’re looking for a table in the Florida area. Your Craigslist list would look like this:

Let’s look at some other places to find good pieces for flipping.

Garage Sales – 

This is a no-brainer, garage sales are filled with people selling stuff they don’t want anymore and prices are usually very cheap. Here you’re going to run into a lot of junk, but you’ll also run into some good pieces. 

Keep in mind that when they say “as is” it’s usually just a way for them to get rid of it without giving away the farm or they’re trying to hide something. I like to look at what’s on the inside and if it’s in bad shape then they’re not going to tell you about it. I usually laugh and tell them “as is” because you know what they say, if it’s too good to be true…

Tag Sales – 

These are events held usually once or twice a month by churches or other organizations where they sell donated goods for cheap. The only catch here is that the pieces are sold as-is with no refunds. That being said they usually draw some very good deals and come across some really high-end pieces that would sell for more than retail on Craigslist or at a garage sale.

Estate Sales – 

These are by far the best places to find really nice furniture because it comes from someone who bought quality stuff before they died and their family wants to unload it for quick cash. 

You might have to look at a few before you find the good stuff, but when you do your wallet will be very happy. The downside is that they are usually advertised as “estate sales” which means it’s going on for several days and the price of admission isn’t too cheap. So this means you’re going to be spending more time and money getting to these sales.

Thrift Stores – 

These are literally the gold mines of furniture flipping. Places like Salvation Army, Goodwill, Habitat for Humanity ReStore, etc usually have pieces that someone at one point or another decided they didn’t want anymore and dropped off there. There’s nothing wrong with their stuff, it’s just been sitting there collecting dust. The good news is they sell most pieces very cheap and if they didn’t want it anymore you know for a fact that someone else won’t want it either.

Garage Sale Channels – 

This is another place I go to when I need something specific. These channels literally show you real-time pictures of garage sales from around the world, usually with a price and how long the sale has been going on.

Online Auction Sites – 

Sites like eBay or Amazon can be great to find deals if you know what you’re looking for. Since I’m not really an auction kind of guy I don’t pay too much attention to them, but one thing I did notice is that it’s generally best to buy in bulk for this kind of stuff because you can get a pretty good deal.

Buying Directly From The Manufacturer – 

These are great places to find furniture if you know exactly what you’re looking for, but they usually cost more than retail depending on where it comes from. You can oftentimes find discounts on their site, but it’s something you have to look into. You can buy at wholesale price and sell at full price.

Facebook – 

Facebook Marketplace is another great place where you can buy and sell stuff. I found this to be the most successful method but you must act quickly to obtain the best bargains. And, above all, be cautious – don’t go anywhere alone, and if at all possible, meet in a public place. Be safe!. 

Post a request to ask in Facebook local area group. It never hurts to ask! Ask if you can take some of them off your hands.

Friends and Family – 

You will be surprised after trying this method. Contact your family and friends for old, unused furniture. You’d be surprised at the number of people who have “junk” they can’t wait to unload and often for free! (Yes this is true.)

Yard Sales – 

Yard sale is another great palace to buy old furniture for flipping. You can score some amazing deals because if it’s not already sold out, chances are the owner doesn’t want to put it back inside or take it anywhere.

At the end!

So there are 11 places I use to find cool furniture that will sell for a nice profit. There are obviously more out there, these are just the ones that worked best for many furniture flippers. If you know of others please share in the comments below…
