Greetings! My name is Lisa, and resale has been my side hustle for a long time. (I picked up this dress for $7. Put a bird on it!)
By day I’m a software development apprentice. One of my superpowers is finding super cool and unique items that I resell. I also teach my ever growing network how to flip items for a tidy profit.
****Currently I’m seeking beta testers in my network to sell their approved goodies on my newly launched SHOP on this site.****
This about page is my way of showing you some of what you’ll get from this site and my blog.
First, a little more about me: I started this blog in 2015 because I believe that everyone can make money in buying items to resell, whether online or in real life. I can’t NOT write about this stuff, and I’m still working on my first book, The Art of Resale.
I’ve been buying and reselling for a super duper ultra stupendous mega very long time. I’ll share with you all of my creative strategies to acquire quality (and sometimes fashionable) items for less than you could ever imagine.
I’ll also go in-depth about what it takes to sell these items and make money. From picking, listing, communicating with buyers, shipping, and all the other pesky details, I’ve got this down.
So get down with me as I’ll share many details of the journey of buying and reselling. My personal specialty and passion lies in clothing, shoes, books, vintage, and accessories, but my knowledge is vast. The more avant garde and quirky, the better.
It’s an indescribable thrill, a most wonderful feeling that you get when you’re able to score quality goods and also pay for the entire shopping trip with just one item!
Your mission is to profit handsomely from the pre-loved goodies that you find. I do it all the time, and I’ll show you how to do it, too.
Here is one of my best flips ever. I purchased these John Fluevog shoes at a Savers chain thrift store.
They recently sold on eBay for $182.50!!
Who is Lisa Bronwyn??
Originally from Los Angeles, I’ve lived in Minneapolis, Seattle, and Portland and have been unsure of the Bay Area since 2011.
I believe that everyone should have the abilities to drive stick, ride a motorcycle, and put on false eyelashes. You can do at least two out of three of those, trust me!
I’ve worked in the past with a diverse roster of brands such as Goodwill, Sephora, Ulta, Dr. Sketchy’s Anti-Art School, Ignite Seattle, and Google Express. I’ve also been an actress, and the chances are that you watched a movie or tv show I appeared in during 2007-2008.
I’ve also been a pro makeup artist and esthetician and am now pursuing software development.
Fast facts are that I don’t know how to swim very well, didn’t drive until age 21 (not easy in L.A.), and didn’t go on a plane until age 23 (with a non-stop flight to London by myself, thank you very much!)
Since I adore fashion, can I tell you a secret?
I’ve been reluctant to call myself a fashion blogger, because who am I (little ole me?) to tell you what you should or shouldn’t wear. Life’s too short for not doing what you want to do, as long as it doesn’t harm others. Fashion is yet one artistic expression and I was literally born into it, in Hollywood, CA.
My parents were stylists in the 70’s and 80’s on the infamous Melrose Avenue and I learned a lot while growing up!
However, I’m not sure that we ever completely grow out of our adolescent selves.
This is what I still feel like on the inside, a little awkward but well-intentioned.
I believe that fashion shouldn’t be pretentious. I do think that many people take themselves and fashion a little too seriously, and life is much too short for that.
It’s funny how some trends come back. Note the dark tights with white gladiator shoes above.
