Before you criticize someone, walk a mile in their shoes. That way, you'll be a mile from them, and you'll have their shoes.
Lets see, to fund my daughters Ivy league college expenses, I had to sell a great number of grails that I wish I could have back. So, this is not really flipping for others, but it still upsets me just thinking about it.

And more. Her first year tuition at Princeton is $100K. It cost me about that much to buy these watches, and I got back about $65K. Makes me sick but afterall, I am a Dad. This time around, NO selling, she will just have to get student loans. Thanks for letting me vent!!
For me it was an Ecozilla. My wife kept calling it the 'door knob' watch and I couldn't shake the image. I ended up flipping it after just a few weeks.

Helson Turtle. I knew it was on the "smallish" side for me but thought I could bond with it. Tried it on once and up for sale it went.
Reading these posts, I am trying to understand the idea of buying (the catch, the hunt) and selling it again nearly immediately.
I have never sold a watch, mainly because I have never bought a watch without thinking, researching about it for some while.
I would think that if you are limited in your budget, that you would think twice before making the buy.
But as always, the flipping gives us the opportunity to make some great deals, I am sure that thanks to "flipping", I was able to buy some nice wathes at a price below par.
I guess you are not eligible for tuition assistance with a stable like that. Financial aid people would take one look at that and roll out of their chair.
I admire what you did, family comes first and I am sure she will appreciate your sacrifices down the road. You are a good dad.
Uh oh, I think she is with me now??
