In case you missed all my drama from today... here are the major details to get you up to date lol. So every time someone likes one of my items on Poshmark I share a listing to their closet basically saying “Let’s make a deal! Reasonable offers accepted,” which is what I did with this turbotaylor chick. She subsequently unlikes the item and basically spams this listing I shared telling me not to spam her. I respond and defend myself and say lol at the end cause I don’t like drama and I laugh in real life because I’m a 100% conflict avoider and I blocked her cause who knows if she’ll continue to spam and make rude comments. She makes a listing telling people to report me for spam & basically calls me a liar who just randomly asks ppl if their interested in buying my stuff (WHATTT?!? She’s the spammer.) So I screenshot the post of her liking my item (check out the posts I made on my Insta story) and my Instagram & Posh friends defend me and basically call her out and then she has a meltdown and makes more mean remarks but this time she targets my friends. I emailed Posh about the harassment and hope the post will be removed soon. I’m disgusted that people like this seek enjoyment from harassing others just because they think their protected because it’s on social media. This should be a lesson to all social media users to always think before you type and to always be kind and considerate of others. As a newbie to Buddhism, I strive to be kind, never lie, and always think of others, which I think is a great way to live. So my rant is done, I’m just going to move on and learn from this experience.
I’ve heard people say it’s wrong to resell because you’re taking things that needy people could buy. But today two of my family members said it to me (they didn’t know that I do this). Suddenly with the comment coming from them, I got really self-conscious. I wondered, “Who else that knows I resell thinks I’m doing a terrible thing??”
Devils advocate here: What if you source someplace besides a thrift store? Does that make it more acceptable? Yesterday I hit up the ole Plato’s Closet 75% off sale which made all of my purchases cheaper than my favorite thrift store. And I wasn’t technically thrifting.
I have loved thrifting for several years now, before it even occurred to me to resell any of it for a profit. In fact to this day I have a really hard time taking it seriously as a “business” because I buy so many things that I end up keeping. Sometimes when I start feeling self-conscious like this I justify it by saying that I wear everything myself a time or two and then sell it. Which makes it my own clothes I’m selling. Which is often the truth lol
What are your thoughts? Leave a comment!
Is there something LOWER than a lowball offer? Because I’m pretty sure this qualifies. The MSRP is $268, it’s already listed at $115 (roughly 60% off) and the offer is 80% below THAT. That’s literally 92% off MSRP - and it’s NWOT! 🤦🏼♀️ I’m not even mad either...it’s THAT laughable.
I sold this Tory Burch wallet today. I purchased this wallet a year ago and the exterior leather is peeling but I fully disclosed the flaws and included good pictures and it sold. I was initially offered $12 but I responded by letting the buyer know that even though the exterior leather is peeling the wallet is fully functional and that there is much interest in it and lowest I can do is $20 and they accepted.
Deep V front and back. Lots of ruching makes the dress very flattering. Slight amount of crinoline sewn in for a touch of puffiness. Bust is 34 inches laying flat and without any stretch, waist is 26 inches. Back is 34 inches from the top of the zipper down. No tags to the type of material. Top has some spandex in it, skirt of dress is a matte polyester probably. Tag says size 8. (0929)
