After reading the Poshmark downlow online, I logged on via iPhone and surveyed some of the merch up for sale and immediately thought, "This is doable!" Within minutes, I began listing designer and vintage purses that I have been attempting to sell on eBay. [Tangent: Any online selling is definitely feast or famine, but lately my eBay sales have been the latter, so I was excited to find an alternate avenue to make me some cash and free up some space in my life. When you sell an item, they take 20% of your sales. I know this seems like a huge cut, but this is actually pretty reasonable considering they send you a prepaid shipping label and the listings are free. ]
|here's some of my loot...I definitely have more.|
So far I haven't sold anything [Tangent: Cue the sad trombone!], but it's only been a week and on the bright side I have gained lots of followers. Over the weekend, I also got a boost of confidence at the Nashville Blogger Meetup from Aubrey from Adventures in Aubreyland, who said she has sold lots of things on there and was smitten with it!
Since I now have loads of free time, I am gonna clean out my closet this week and post even more stuff. Although, I'm not the biggest fashionista, I love the premise and I promise to be selective and curate my "online closet" diligently. I mean, I realize no one wants my 1978 cub scout jamboree shirt that I sleep in. [Tangent: It's definitely skewed more towards brand name designers, but a lot of people didn't get the memo. I don't want your pilling Faded Glory bras, ladies! Keep those in the garage sale pile, where they belong.]
I encourage you all to give it a go. And to make it mutually beneficial for my sweet readers- When you join, we can both get a $5 credit if you use code: HGENX or look for me, my name is @kimmiemobile. [Tangent: I also posted a button/link to my margins so visit me periodically and check out my wares. I swear I feel like a gypsy even saying that.]
