Collaboration! So you might have noticed that it’s been a little while since I’ve posted anything about Kidizen!
Exciting things happening for the company and they recently introduced their Android for Kidizen app! Hooray! Now everyone can be addicted, I mean, focused on saving money on kids clothes.
My major announcement that I’ve been waiting to share with you is that I’ve been writing the Shop of the Week stories over on their blog now! It’s official; I’m collaborating with Kidizen and what I’m doing now is writing their Shop Stories!
We’re trying to make this a weekly feature, and it’s been going very well. It’s been a learning process for getting the timing down so that I can get the interviews compiled and work with each shop to get the best pics in the process.
During this time, I’ve “met” many awesome mamas and have gotten some great ideas. If you don’t know a lot about Kidizen already, they are an app and site that make buying and selling kids clothes a breeze. I maintain that it’s still the easiest, most user-friendly app out there in the e-commerce space. My wish list is that I can sell some of my goodies so that I can bypass eBay altogether and make some new friends.
The community aspect of the app is outstanding, and I’m happy to have met some nice people that aren’t pretentious.
I’ve been in the Bay Area since 2011, and it’s been hard to make friends here. Having kids is the line in the sand that divides people, and you can’t just hang out. Spontaneity is a thing of the past, especially when you have a child under 1. However, you just get more creative! Instead of reading the latest drivel on the internet, I’m focusing on reselling in a big way.
I’ve also been focusing on keeping up with all the technologies, which is a full-time job in and of itself.
I can’t thank Kidizen enough for introducing me to some fantastic brands that I didn’t know anything about before. My eye hones in on what I see in my travels, and I have been so fortunate to see these brands at thrift stores.
Finding that sweet spot of providing a great deal and making a little profit is a challenge, but I welcome it. Knowledge is power and anything that we can do to keep clothes out of landfills.
Do your part and get creative!
By the way, I LOVE the bio that Kidizen wrote of me:
Shop Stories are gathered and written with love by Lisa Bronwyn, mother of 2 littles, blogger, and unwavering enthusiast of living by resale.
