Shut up and take my money

Today, I found out about Poshmark.


Basically, it’s an online place where you can sell all the things from your closet you no longer what or use. While you’re there, you can also shop others’ items. There’s everything on there and every brand, and some of the items are new.┬áThere is a lot more to the website, but that’s the main idea. In the 12 hours I have known about it, I have already posted almost 30 items. It was liberating to purge my closet, and will probably be posting more in the next couple days. If you download their free app, it is even easier to maneuver Poshmark. It seriously takes less than 1 minute to create a post for the item you want to sell. You can create a profile which makes it easier for Poshmark to know what to show you. I have a feeling the money I make from my clothes will be spent buying others clothes, and I am so excited!


Since I am still new to Poshmark (username is carianngz), feel free to suggest awesome people to follow on there!


Tales from an Etsy Seller


I never intended on selling items on Etsy, but it is happening. i don’t know if it’s the excitement of people loving things you make or those people actually paying money for your items, but something about having an Etsy store is certainly thrilling! I may only have a handful of items, but they are all one-of-a-kind and completely made with love. Every single item is one that I originally made for myself for my wedding or other various occasions. It’s fun getting to be totally free with my creativity. My first actual sale on Etsy could not have been any less stress-free. A woman pretty much let me design her headband with the only restriction of “try to use a lot of neutrals and amber” and “whatever you think will look good”. Talk about a low maintenance buyer! The second she made the purchase, my heart started racing and my mind filled with thoughts of her hating what I was going to make her. After seeing her comments, though, I was definitely put at ease. So thank you, kind stranger, for making this whole Etsy thing way less stressful than I thought it would be.

Here is the headband I made for her!
