It’s the notification that many Poshmark sellers dread: “Case opened for your sale…” Ugh! You just want to sell a good product, have a happy customer, and get paid. This post shows you some of the best ways to avoid having a case open against you on Poshmark.
Have you been watching Tidying Up with Marie Kondo? This new Netflix show is all the rage right now. Organization guru Marie Kondo uses her KonMari method to help people declutter their homes, bringing increased order and happiness into their lives. My husband and I watched a few episodes together when it first came out earlier this month.
Welcome to the new year! I have lots to share with you this year. I’m excited to get started by showing you my recent sales Poshmark and eBay. You might know by now that I’m a thrift shopping and reseller addict. It’s a fun and profitable side hustle that I pursue in my free time. After a slowdown in sales over last summer, which is typical for the season, I was happy to see my sales pick up in the fall. I ended the year with a great fourth quarter in sales!
The other day I found myself telling someone what I do in my free time. Most of my free time is spent working on my side hustles of reselling second-hand clothing and blogging. Once I shared this information and the work that goes into each, I heard, “how do you find the time for your side hustles?”
Since I started selling second-hand clothes and accessories online several years ago, I’ve been trying to improve my business. That means selling more in-demand items, sourcing items cheaper, and taking better pictures. One way to source better items has been to offer my selling services for consignment.
Over the past several months, I’ve tried to grow my closet and expand my offerings with the intention of making more sales. I’ve been taking chances on brands that I previously didn’t sell, either because I didn’t think they would sell well or I didn’t know about them. I’ve come away with a few surprises that I want to share with you here today. What are these brands? Take a look…
Summer tends to bring a slowdown in sales for online sellers. While a sales slump can be a test of patience, it can also be a time to focus on improving other aspects of your business. That’s what I’m trying to do this summer and why I’ll be writing a series of posts on how to up your selling game over the summer months.
In April of this year, I hosted a Closet to Cash online listing challenge. My goal was to motivate myself and fellow sellers to list more items for sale over the seven days of the challenge. I had a growing pile of thrifted clothing taking over my lounge chair. I knew that if I could push myself to get them listed, I would see more sales and increased profits.
Another quarter of the year has passed, which means it’s time for me to share a thrift selling update, including what worked and what sold this winter. The past few months have been full of ups and downs for me on the thrifting front. On the downside, I haven’t spent as much time as I’ve wanted to focus on selling due to other life events. But that’s what’s great about selling! You can do it on your terms.
It’s confession time. When I sold my first few items online, I packaged them in Ziplock bags and recycled mailers before shipping them off. Stuffing would’ve been a better way to describe it. Forget about visual appeal. I only thought about keeping the items dry if the packages got wet.Thankfully, I’ve come a long way since then.
I’ve been focused on thrift shopping and selling with a one-track mind recently. Several weeks ago, I wrote about why you should sell on multiple platforms and gave some examples of things I sold. This week, I wanted to share some more of my recent thrifting activities as well as examples of my recent sales.
