In the clip, she added the caption: “I bought a $1600 [£1,196] couch for $80 [£59] and sold it for $900 [£673].”
She explained that she spotted the bargain leather couch at a thrift store and saw online that new ones were actually worth more than £1,000.
She immediately snapped it up and took it home with her for the bargain price.
The furniture flipper continued: “I brought it home of course.
“I staged it, listed it on Facebook Marketplace, sold it for $900.”
She showed how all she did was put it in her lounge and added some cushions and a throw so people could visualise it in their homes better.
Her video has racked up more than 100,000 views, and people were impressed.
One said: “Wow what a find.”
Another added: “Great job.”
