For this blog post, I will go into detail about what actually helps you to make sales. Specifically, I will talk about shares, likes, follows, listing, and relisting, and how doing these things can either help or hinder your business.

As far as shipping and packaging go, I know that I honestly put a lot less time and effort into them than I should. Personally, whenever I order something and it comes in a cute box or nice package with tissue paper, or has a cute little note, I am always very excited to open … Continue reading Shipping & Packaging
In my last post, I talked about pricing in relation to sending out and accepting offers. I mentioned that pricing an item that you are trying to resell can be pretty difficult. My best advice would be to always check comps no matter what. By checking comps, I mean looking on a reselling platform for … Continue reading Pricing and Comps
Pricing an item that you are trying to resell can be pretty tricky. The reason why pricing can be difficult, especially on Poshmark, is because you need to be able to account for platform fees and offers. Platform fees are what percentage of the sale each platform that you sell on takes out of your … Continue reading Pricing and Offers
I have mentioned before in my previous blog posts that I do list on multiple different platforms. The platforms that I currently use are Poshmark, Depop, and Mercari.

I have always enjoyed going to garage sales, because they tend to be even cheaper than thrift stores, and a lot of the time, people do … Continue reading Where to Source: Garage Sales
Plato’s Closet is also a great place to source. It is less of a thrift store and more of a buy/sell/trade store. While Plato’s does seem to be a little bit more expensive than regular thrift stores, many of the prices are actually comparable to Goodwill. However, Plato’s does definitely mark up some higher-end items … Continue reading Where to Source: Buy/Sell/Trade Stores
Thrifting is definitely my favorite way to source for items to resell. I have always loved thrifting, and have gone with my mom since I was a little girl.
