Good morning friends! Today, I am going to share some of the tools you’ll need to be a Poshmark Seller. I have been selling on Poshmark for over 5 years and have a lot of experience! With over 1,000 sales, 64K followers and all sorts of customer service experiences haha, I have put together a few Poshmark Posts for those of you looking for tips.
1. Mobile phone with Poshmark Mobile App downloaded. You can view and manage your Poshmark account on a desktop computer, but you cannot list and upload items. You must upload photos of your items through the App. Here’s a link to my closet!
2. Shipping Materials. I suggest creating a USPS account and ordering your supplies here, especially if you do not have $ to spend on shipping tape. I order shipping materials through USPS once every few months, and it takes anywhere from 5-20 days to arrive. I always order MAILING SLEEVES, MAILERS and BOXES. Click for links to them!
3. Save all shipping materials you receive. Bubble mailers, boxes, envelopes, shoe boxes, puffy bags of air, tissue. Create a designated recycling area (like your spare room, garage or underneath a table) and store all your materials. PRO TIP- ask your neighbors, parents or friends to save their shipping materials for you to use. This depends on what you sell. I sell decorative pillows often and need large boxes that the post office doesn’t provide for free. YOU CAN MAIL YOUR POSHMARK ORDERS in anything and everything. They do not have to be mailed in Priority mail materials. Yes, you can mail your shoes right in their shoe box! Taped up properly, of course.
4. Scissors. Trim all excess strings off of clothes you are selling
5. 1 pant hanger and 1 Shirt Hanger. Preferably, nice and photo-worthy! There are for hanging your items when photographing them.
6. Shipping tape and regular good ole-tape
7. Optional- thank you cards for large $ purchases. When someone buys an item over $35, I like to slip in a thank-you. Often, I reuse an index card or repurpose construction paper (teacher life) and do not spend money on thank you cards
Happy Poshing, friends! Check out my closet and let me know if you have any questions.
Want to practice yoga virtually with me? I have included content below-Yoga free and accessible for all!
Greetings, family! Thank you so much for the continued support and inquiry as we navigate all things COVID-19.
Currently, Josh and I are adequately quarantined, with ample food, Rx, water, and income to survive us the next month. We remain humble, helpful and hoping that the community will continue to uprise and uplift one another during this trying time.
Many of you have expressed wanting to help us, as we have been financially impacted by the Corona Virus. I work as a small business owner and Independent Contractor, teaching yoga, and Josh works as a landscaper. Together, we feel calm and rooted for our future, yet fully alert. Now is the best time to water our roots and watch us grow.
There are many ways to support us that will never involve money. Please feel inspired by this list of ways that you can support Josh, Pinecone and I during this healing quarantine, both spiritually and financially!
1. Follow our blog, CorderCollective.com. Chances are, you are reading this and following our website! This website will continue to be the hub of our empire. Yoga, landscaping, retail, upcycle, vegan eats, and lifestyle are a few of our niches that we continue to hone and craft. By believing in us now and following along, you are investing in our future and giving others permission to trust us. Thank you!
2. Find us, and please follow us, on social Media platforms.
3. Please leave us a positive review on Facebook, Etsy, or SQUARE. These are 3 of the ways we currently accept payment, and your reviews give others the confidence in the future to purchase our products. You do not have to purchase a product in order to leave a review. If you have ever taken Kelli’s yoga class, purchased plants with the help of Josh, or depended on us as a reliable source, we would love your review. Don’t want to publish online? Please email us your feedback at cordercollective.com and I would be honored to use your anonymous words for various media
This will help us for years to come!
4. Consider giving your housewear, book, cardboard boxes, dying plants, and clothing donations to Kelli.
Why? Many donation collectors (cough cough, Goodwill) do not practice the same environmental or moral standards that we do. Rather than shaming Goodwill, I offer the alternative of letting me filter through your Goodwill donations first. Many of my friends and family have been doing this for years. Some of the things I do with these donations:
-Give gifts to the community at large
-Properly recycle and trash all materials ethically (that cannot be resold at retailers such as Salvation Army, Goodwill, or your favorite thrift store)
-Restructure, Repurpose, Upcycle, Revamp, and resell your items (fabric for quilts, beads for dream catchers, old vessels as planting pots, the list goes on)
-Make dream catchers and jewelry out of old bobbles and bits
-Sustainably wrap and ship all of my Etsy and Poshmark orders (I have never bought shipping supplies in my life, sans packing tape! I have and reuse EVERYTHING. With over 120 Etsy sales and 1,120 Poshmark sales, I know I am making a positive impact on the environment)
-Did you know I have the heart of an American picker? Rather than stressful, this brings me joy, so let me take it off of your plate (or pick it up off your curb…)
-I sell valuable items on Poshmark (I am a Top 10% Seller and Posh Ambassador that has been using this site for almost 7 years now). If you would like me to sell your items on your behalf, I am happy to split profits with you (popular option). Or, you can just give the items to me on good faith that they will land in the right hands and MARIE KELLI YOUR LIFE *Marie Kondo jokes*
-You will see life, love and happiness breathed into the dusty items of your loved ones
-all books will be donated across San Diego county to various Free Little Libraries
5. Support the Yoga studio I work for.
Join our facebook group, Hapa Yoga Ohana Online, for video content of myself and fellow teachers as we continue to teach during the quarantine! This has brought me such joy. Follow our Instagram @hapayoga @hapayogaeastlake, and when our doors open, come take your First Class Free with ME.
6. Contact Josh and I for ornamental landscaping, potting and garden needs. If you have any questions about your California indigenous plants, what to plant that you won’t kill, etc., Josh is your guy 🙂 The plant whisperer.
7. Hire me to marry YO ass. Rev Kelli in the house! I am officiated through the Universal Life Church as a certified reverend, which means, I can marry you and your loved one! If you are looking for a spiritually well-rounded, cosmic and carefully curated ceremony, email me: firstname.lastname@example.org
8. I teach private yoga at offices, apartments, and online. Once this pandemic dust settles, let’s book some yoga classes! Kids birthday parties, weekly office yoga in a conference room, or in a gym- there are infinite ways to play on your mat. I am always accepting used mat, block and strap donations to recirculate to the community.
9. Order a custom dream catcher from my etsy shop. Or, better yet, organize a Dream Catcher Making party for your friends and loved ones! I am able to cater this class to littles (12-17 y/o), or adult classes. I have flexible pricing, ranging from $28-$68 per head, depending on the detail that you would like with your catcher.
10. Support my friends! I am surrounded by small business men and women that would love your fellowship and camaraderie during this time.
Happy new year, everyone 😊 Josh and I spent our peaceful NYE indoors, knitting, Netflixing and potatoing (add it to my verb list). We added 4 new beanies to our etsy site today and are happily shipping off our steady PoshMark orders! While we aren’t big on resolutions, we have made the simple promise to take life day by day. So for today, we are drinking candy cane lattes, watching Archer and crafting a few new items for our shop. Simple life.
Our recycled beanie collection has been our favorite initiative thus far. Josh and I compiled our excess skeins into large baskets, which includes retired items, projects, and yarn donations from family members. We pick three colors at random. It has been challenging us to embrace what ever colors come our way (and forces me to finish what I start!) to our surprise, our recycled collection has been our most successful. We are always happily accepting yarn donations (we don’t descriminate!) and enjoy the challenge of working with materials we wouldn’t have otherwise picked.
