Relisting stale unsold items on Poshmark works!
If you participate in CCO, you drop the price by 10%, and hope someone bites. Another CCO comes around! You drop the price again, no one bites. Hold on, there will be another CCO in a few days. Now your item is priced too low with too many likers, they weren’t going to buy anyway. Relist.
Offer to likers, great idea!!! Every person that ‘liked’ your item gets the offer with discounted shipping. Every person that had ever ‘liked’ the item gets alerted every time you drop the price even lower, this can make you look desperate after too many offers. Relist.
Users will ‘like’ an item for different reasons. Some actually like the item and hope you make an offer. Some sellers will like an item and save it when looking up comps. Party hosts will ‘like’ an item for a possible future host pick. Some will even ‘like’ an item and plan on buying someday, way in the future, like when they win the lottery. And, yes, some will throw you a ‘like’ thinking this is instagram, with no intention of every buying anything.
Relist those items, check the title and description for errors. Retake new photos if necessary. Get some new eyes on your closet and a better chance for sales.

A money saving way to make your own seals and stickers.
I prefer to save money any way I can. I have a stamp pad and old stamps that I use to make my own seals. I purchase any old name tag badges or anything useful at the thrift store or dollar store and cut to size. This is a cute and fun way way to save money and add a personal touch to your packages.
The stamp pad I did get new, and the stamps I grabbed at a a rummage sale. If this is something you want to do, make sure you get a stamp pad to allow for different sizes.
Do you make your own stickers?
Write your sales and goals where you can see them!
I use a dry erase calendar on the wall to write down sales and goals. I keep a running tally and can easily track my sales at a glance. I still am a fan of an old fashioned planner and carry one in my backpack for daily use.

A Garment label or tagger gun is a reseller must!
Ever find a new with tag item and get super excited! Like score! Major money maker! Only to find later that it needs to be treated for a minor flaw or the tag falls off. What to do? This is where a tagging gun comes in handy.
There are so many available to choose from. The price levels are not too bad either, mine was about $8. You can easily reattach tags to items that need to be thrown in the dryer, dry cleaned, or just reattach tags that won’t stay.
I mainly use the gun for the gifts I include with most of my sales, which is a cute pair of new socks with my personalized ‘Thank you’ card attached. Picture below shows my gift and the gun I use.
