Hey guys! Yesterday, I went on a mini shopping spree (thrifting of course) and found some AMAZING gems. Some items I kept for myself but the majority of them I bought for Poshmark. What I buy and how much I spend varies per month but I have learned that the more you buy, the more you sell.
For today’s look, I am wearing one of my favorite thrift finds from yesterday: a Free People neutral sweater. Neutral pieces make up 80% of my closet so this was the perfect addition to my wardrobe! Don’t be afraid to thrift as you never know what you will find!
Poshmark: So let’s talk about the haters… Over the past 4 years, I have received some negativity on Poshmark, whether it be from low ballers or people leaving negative reviews. There have been times when I wanted to quit the app altogether because I was so frustrated with people. However, as time passed, I learned how to better deal with it. Here are some tips to surviving negativity on Poshmark:
1. Don’t Take it Personally Remember, you are better than the negative Nancy’s out there. In life, people will always try to knock you down. The best thing that you can do is to just ignore it. Don’t take it personally. Shrug it off and move on.
2. Learn from It– Sometimes, you will mess up a listing or a sale. Whether you forgot to include a picture or failed to mention a flaw, everyone makes a mistake. No one is perfect so we all need to learn from our mistakes. Whenever I mess up a listing, I make it a point to learn from my mistake so that I never make that mistake again. For example, if someone says that I need to improve upon my “item description,” then that is exactly what I will do. Every listing after that will have a clear and concise item description leaving the buyer with little to no questions.
3. Be Reasonably Firm– This one applies ESPECIALLY to dealing with low-ballers. Sometimes, people are going to submit offers that seem insulting. Don’t be insulted by low offers. If you don’t like what people are offering you, then be firm or counter. However, if it starts turning into a game, stop it and move on. Sometimes, it is not wise to take the first offer that comes your way. Believe it or not, other people will probably makes offers. Some will be better and some will be worse. When accepting offers, choose the best offer for you and when in doubt, trust your gut!
Be Classy, Be Confident, Be Strong
