Reseller Tips on Using Poshmark's Dressing Room Feature

By now you have had a chance to toy around with the dressing room feature that Poshmark launched last week. But how do you use it to your advantage without driving buyers crazy? 

1. Use your direct shares wisely. You are building foundation with your buyer, be selective and share with the buyers best interest in mind. 

2. Find buyers who are already interested in the same item or style that you have available. Think of it as a direct marketing campaign, you have the ability to target your specific demographic; someone who has already liked a similar/the same item.

3. Search available listings for your item/similar items. Be as descriptive as possible. For example use the same brand, color, style, and size of what you have available in your closet. Sort by newest, open and find buyers who liked each item then direct share your item to them. They're fresh and looking for an item similar to the one they liked, use that to your advantage.

4. Follow and share anyone who likes or bundles an item from your closet. These are the buyers who are already interested in your closet. Connect with them while your closet is fresh in their minds. 

A few things you shouldn't do:

Don't share things that aren't in the buyers size, if you don't know ask or better yet look in their closet for their size. Don't share too soon, if someone liked your item yesterday don't share it to them today. If someone passes on your direct share do not share it to them again, they're not interested in the item. If they were they would have liked or bundled your item. 

These are my tips and observations so far, for day to day updates check out my Instagram story @OrnamentalStone. 

RUEHL NO. 925 TAKE IT OR LEAVE IT

RUEHL N0. 925 BLAZER 

RUEHL N0. 925 BLAZER 

Ruehl was a short lived brand under the Abercrombie & Fitch umbrella, after 5 years the company pulled the plug. The brand was meant to compete with J. Crew and Polo but failed to do so. Because of its limited production some pieces can be highly sought after, but others especially ones that resemble A&F will sit in your inventory. 

Take it if:

  • You spy leather, their leather pieces have retained their value. If you're lucky enough to come across one of their men's leather bomber jackets grab it quick! Leather bombers can sell for up to $699, even with some wear you can bet on about $250.
  • It is a mens sweater with a cashmere wool blend, these tend to be the thicker or knit. You can expect to get up to $150 if the sweater is NWT or EUC.
  • It's menswear because it sells better than womenswear overall.
  • You find a leather bag, there is a cult following for their leather purses which hold up well over time. NWT you can get up to $240, but beware the price steadily goes down with signs of wear. 
  • You find one of their fragrances, any discontinued fragrance can draw in long time lovers willing to pay big bucks to get it. 
  • You find very distressed jeans, the type that were made that way and not necessarily distressed from a lot of wear. In specific there are a few types made that were frayed down the front of both legs in large patches. It should have minimal to moderate breakage in the threads.

Leave it if:

  • It's a basic, it just doesn't sell well and you would be lucky to get $10. 
  • It resembles A&F too much, items that look just like the ones you could and still can get from A&F will sit in your inventory. 
  • It's a mid range item that is not in EUC, don't bother taking blazers, sweaters, jeans, and tees unless they are in EUC. The resale value varies greatly and items are more saturated allowing buyers to be choosier when it comes to style and condition.
