At the beginning of 2022, we set a challenge to our two Gumtree Good Lifers: Find an item listed on Gumtree for under R1000, fix it up, and then flip it to make some moola! 


DIY is a great way to turn something ‘meh’ into a-mazing, which is what DIY junkie Melissa did. She found a preloved bookshelf listed on Gumtree, contacted the seller, and got the goods in a matter of hours.


John, on the other hand, has a special knack for electronics and has been using Gumtree to support his side hustle for years. He secured an iPhone with a broken screen through Gumtree, which he’s fixin’ to add more cash to his stash 💰 


Want to know how much they’ll make after they’ve got the goods? Stay tuned to our socials to find out. If you’d like to try your hand at a fix-er-upper and get your own taste of the #GumtreeGoodLife, check out 😉
