I Sell Clothes Dressed In PJs
I used to dress up for work every day, and now, I sell clothes while dressed in my PJs – if I want to. That’s how I got started selling on Poshmark. Because I didn’t need a closet full of designer clothes, shoes, and bags anymore. After selling a few things a little at a time, one day, it clicked! I had taken an opportunity to downsize and turned it into a profitable business venture.
The downsizing began in August 2020, and I’m still going through stacks and racks of my own clothes. I’m now helping a few other ladies by selling the items they have decided to let go of. It was humbling at first to be selling things I once cherished. Still, I realized how much I enjoyed the process of making other people happy through quality items at affordable prices along with the best possible positive experience I can deliver.
Within six months, I found myself in over my head in bins of clothes that needed to be prepped. It’s important to me that everything is cleaned, steamed, and mended (if necessary) before I list it, and I couldn’t keep up with the whole process – and honestly, I’m not that good at that steaming and ironing thing. One would think that after 8 years in the Air Force, I’d be good at the ironing part, at least. Yeah, well, I can do it, but not efficiently. I knew that to deliver quality items with the best customer care, and I needed help.
My entrepreneur instincts kicked in, and I connected with a lovely lady in my community who was looking for something to do while she is stuck at home too. She does an impeccable job of prepping the clothes. I can now focus on doing the photos, creating the listings, selling, and taking care of the business requirements. I love being in business for myself!
