When shopping for myself and for the baby, I get a real kick out of finding nice brands at a fraction of what they once cost. I would say "it's a problem," but you won't find my husband complaining ... he loves that I shop wisely.
My sister Laura lives in Greenville, SC and has raved for months and months about how wonderful Fickle Resale is. She has a membership, and most of her girlfriends are also members. She really piqued my interest!
Here's a rundown of how Fickle Resale works:
+ An invitation-only site that is formed as "friends of friends" ... like shopping your girlfriends' closet but a much larger group.
+ Female only keeps it safe for you as a buyer and seller
+ Items are curated to be upscale, stylish, and in great condition ... no sorting thru junk
+ As a seller, you keep 100% of your selling price -- no listing or final sale fees
+ A small yearly membership of $29.95 is often recouped in one sale and this also helps keep the group open to those who truly have an interest in buying/selling upscale goods.
Here's a peek inside the Greenville, SC group:
So basically, Fickle Resale is a great way of connecting with other stylish ladies who no longer have a need for really nice clothes, accessories, baby and childrens' clothes, and home decor ... and you, as the buyer, score big.
We are just now launching in Charlotte, and here are some of the items that have already been listed for our city:
If you are not a Charlotte reader, you could always see if there is a Fickle Resale in your area already, and you could also start your own! Details can be found on the Fickle Resale site (here).
