    The Notorious Summer Sales Slump – How to benefit from the slow summer retail months 

    The Notorious Summer Sales Slump 

    How to benefit from the slow summer retail months 


         Summer is finally here, the weather is beautiful and everyone is ready to enjoy the beach, pool and well-deserved vacations. This all sounds perfect, but what about your sales? If everyone is out and about enjoying the summer sun, that means less people are online shopping. The summer months are notorious for drops within the resale market.  Did you notice a sudden drop in traffic, offers and sales on Poshmark? don’t throw in the towel yet! Here are some ways to benefit from the slower summer months. 



       Organizing inventory is my least favorite thing about reselling. There is not 1 thing about organizing I enjoy, not going to lie about that, but of course it has to be done. I find organizing in the summer to be the most beneficial time of the year to do so. When I organize I put my items into categories, and sizesLet’s say I have a red Valentino dress listed for sale, that dress would be hanging up in my dress section in size order. I use portable closets to hang up and keep my folded items in.  I used to use bins but, every time I needed to get an item which would be every other day, I found myself rummaging through the rest of the items and it just looked sloppy. 


    Fall/Winter Fashion Research

        The fashion world moves super-fast, so should you if you want to stay ahead of the game. Most of us are working on our tans and summer fun however, fall and winter fashions are already being previewed within the fashion industry. Don’t wait till the leaves start to change pretty colors to look for fall and winter fashion trends. Do your research now and start to look for affordable sourcing options for the upcoming season. 


    Go Thrifting 

    Summer thrifting is the best! So many people are out of town, on vacation, traveling etc… Thrift stores are empty, and I speak from experience. Every weekend I go thrifting at the Goodwill outlet and every weekend (during the summer) I find that I have the store almost to myself. I have free range of every rack, bin and cart. There are no nosey shoppers looking at what I am looking at, no competition and no lines. I find the best items in the summer months, which I load up on.  People love cleaning their closets out during the spring and summer, and lots of those items end up and thrift shops. I can’t express my excitement enough; summer thrifting is a MUST! 



    Garage Sales 

    Tis the season for garage sales and lemonade standsyaye! No, I’m not telling you to go make a lemonade stand but…if you really want to, I won’t stop you. There is no need to explain how popular garage sales are during the summer, I’m sure you see plenty of those. Garage sale hopping is a thing, or at least for me it is. I round up all of the local garage sales in my area for the day, and I check them all out. You can find everything and anything at a garage sale. One man’s trash is another man’s treasure. When people get don’t use things, they lose value to the person, so they are willing to just sell it for whatever. I have scored some seriously fancy items lately from garage sales. I purchased an authentic Dooney and Bourke tote for $3! Of course, before you purchase designer items, take the time to try to authenticate it as much as you can, and never list garage sale or thrifted items for sale unless you can 100% authenticate it. I find my sources on my local Facebook community groups and boards as well as Facebook market place. All you have to do is post “Who is having a garage sale?” You’d be surprised how many people respond. I’ve done this while on a getaway in Boston and it worked as well.  You can also use websites like “Garagesaletracker.com” or “yardsalesearch.com 


    Take Time Off 

    It’s summer, enjoy it! If reorganizing, taking new photos or garage sale/ thrifting is not your ideal summer goals, take a break. Summer always seems to pass so fast, take time to enjoy the little things. You are not a machine, sales drop and that’s normal, it happens to every business no matter how big or small. Take some time to reflect on the success you have created and how you can improve and grow. The internet is not going anywhere, you can login whenever you want. Summer only lasts for so long, enjoy it! 

  • Poshmark Review From Senior Citizen Seller Stylists

    Poshmark Review  From Senior Citizen Seller Stylists

    Poshmark Review From Senior Citizen Seller Stylists

    Honest answers from active Poshmark seller’s ages 65+


    With over 4 million users on Poshmark, it seems like everyone and their mother is a seller stylist, but what about grandmother! That’s right, senior citizens are dominating the Poshmark platform, and you may not even realize it.  Poshmark’s marketing seems to be targeted towards women, men and kids..but what about senior citizens? Have you seen any of the recent videos Poshmark has released for T.V. and internet commercials? All of the “poshers” seem to fit a certain age group, why? 

    We asked three Poshmark users aged 65+ for their honest opinions about buying and selling on Poshmark. This is what they had to say:

    1.Do you notice lots of shares, follows and likes within your closet? 

     ” I think shares and likes are related to your sharing, the more you share the more you get. When my closet is on vacation I see a lot of followers but not many shares or likes. – @Ahineg “ 

     “Yes – esp. since I’m an ambassador.  I’m in 2 share groups. – @Guusje” 

    ” I notice several shares and follows and some likes in my closet. – @Felicityshoppe” 


    2.On average, how many offers/sales do you typically see in a week? (estimated guess) 

    “So far, I have been averaging about 4 sales per week and about the same amount of offers (perhaps a few less offers), not too bad for just starting out. @Felicityshoppe” 

    “I have about 30 Posh Sales per month (I have 70- 100 a month on ebay).   I do find the sharing and following to be very tedious and time consuming. And boring! 🙂  I love the fact that Posh buyers pay postage and that I don’t need to worry about shipping.  I do wish they offered an optional first-class option since so much of what I sell could easily ship first class for $3.  I think the high shipping costs are off-putting to some buyers. – @Guusje” 

    “Lately most of my sales are on the weekend, usually 5-7 sales. During the week maybe 1 a day. I consider myself a very small Posher. The number of sales is OK, but I would like to increase my average sale. – @Ahineg “ 


    3.Do you feel welcomed into the Poshmark community? 

    ” I haven’t been interested in attending any of the Poshfest events – from the pictures it looks like serious partying and designer drinks for the millennials who are also fashionistas.   I’m in a couple of FB groups and they have been very helpful. – @Guusje” 

    “Absolutely! Most Poshers are very nice! – @Ahineg “ 

    “Yes, I definitely feel welcome in the Poshmark community, and I am grateful for that! – @Felicityshoppe” 

    4.Do you use social media to promote your closet? (Facebook, Instagram, Pinterest etc) 

    ” no – should but I haven’t mastered Instagram and Twitter yet.  I don’t feel right pimping my closet on my personal FB page. – @Guusje” 

    “I use Pinterest and Tumbler. I belong to a number of Facebook Poshmark groups and have learned so much from them but I don’t post my items on Facebook or Instagram. I try to keep those more personal. – @Ahineg “ 

    “Yes, I use social media to promote my closet, e.g. Facebook, Instagram, Twitter.  I have a huge Pinterest interaction, but have yet to take the time to figure out how to best utilize it for my Poshmark closet. -@Felicityshoppe” 


    5.What age group do you believe your buyers fall within? (18-28, 29-39 and so on)  

     I think the age group varies, but actually am not sure exactly how to gauge that anyway.  Since I also currently have a lot of jewelry, I believe that contributes to the variance.  – @Felicityshoppe” 

    “I think most are 20 – 35 – I sell a lot of athletic wear and I actively search for brands that appeal to younger buyers.  My older women clothing seems to do better on eBay.  I also sell men’s clothing. – @Guusje” 

    “I feel like most of Poshmark is young so I will be very interested in your blog post! Because of the brands and styles I carry, I think most of my customers are between 30-45. – @Ahineg “ 

    6.With age comes wisdom, what would your advice be to the younger Poshmark sellers? 

    “Don’t assume every buyer is out to scam you!   And don’t get upset if buyers don’t give you 5 stars, life is not like elementary school where everyone gets a medal or certificate!  – @Guusje” 

    “Ha! Not sure I have any wisdom! I was a retail buyer for many years so I am always interested in turning my closet quickly. I would rather make less money per item but turn them quickly. I keep a record of everything I post, when it sells, cost to me and selling price, and where it came from. That way I am less likely to buy something that moves slowly. At the end of the quarter I re-evaluate what I have left and either take to a consignment store, donate or tweak the listing. Decisions thought out ahead of time are almost always better than impulse. Be organized! It is so much easier and you can make smarter choices. – @Ahineg “ 

     “To younger Poshmark sellers, perhaps cater to a more general audience, however I would like to see Poshmark itself market to a more diverse age group. – @Felicityshoppe” 


    7.Do you find it difficult purchasing for yourself on Poshmark? 

    ” I don’t buy very much. I have learned to look at the seller’s previous sales and comments. I live in a casual Colorado mountain town and we don’t dress up much. I’m retired and don’t need work clothes. I am always on the lookout for great, quality athleisure but I wear a small size, sometimes that is hard to find. I am always looking for older Poshers, I wish there was an easy way to create a group of “friends”.  – @Ahineg “ 

    “I don’t shop for myself on Poshmark – @Guusje” 

    “I have not yet made a Poshmark purchase. – @Felicityshoppe”

    8. Have you ever thought about going to Poshfest?

    “No, not yet.  Would not rule it out in the future. – @Felicityshoppe” 

    ” I have. The last Poshfest in Denver was when I was out of town or I would have gone. I am often the oldest person in the room so that doesn’t bother me. – @Ahineg “ 

    “No – from the pictures it looks like a non-stop alcohol fueled party and I rarely drink – @Guusje” 


     Poshmark is not just for your 20 something year olds.

    These seniors are proof that age does not define a successful Poshmark closet. Seniors are no strangers to the changing fashion trends. Senior citizens have made fashion what it is today, for example; Tommy Hilfiger is 67, Ralph Lauren is 78, Jean-Paul Gaultier is 66, Vera Wang is 68, Donna Karan is 69, Karl Lagerfeld is 84 and of course we can’t forget, the ever so trendy Betsey Johnson is a vibrant 75! 

    This blog post could not be possible without the honest Poshmark review provided by @Ahineg@Felicityshoppe and @Guusje . Make sure you spread that #PoshLove by following their amazing closets.


    Special Thanks To: @Ahineg@Felicityshoppe and @Guusje
