Resources



Everyone needs great resources! Here are some that I use and highly recommend. I hope you find them helpful. Watch this space!

Please note that there are affiliate links to some items so that I can keep this site afloat. These are all items that I either use personally or believe in. Any people I mention are those that I find inspiring and informative.

I want to keep this site free of anything that doesn’t belong, like tacky and unnecessary ads. There are a lot of ways to monetize a site and I’d prefer to do that by working with outstanding people and brands.

INSPIRATIONAL PEOPLE

You never know when or how inspiration strikes. The following people are the ones that I subscribe to that keep me informative and engaged. I can always read (and sometimes listen to):

 

Austin Kleon

Jen Sincero

James Altucher

 

FASHION-ISH

Agent Lover

Haute Macabre

Mermaidens

Wish Wish Wish

SHIPPING SUPPLIES

For weighing items, I use the USPS Style 25 Lb x 0.1 OZ Digital Shipping Mailing Postal Scale with Batteries

For poly mailers that I use for USPS First Class Shipping, I love the 100 10X13 2.5 mil poly mailers envelopes bags by Valuemailers for their versatility with size. If an item is fairly small, you can just double the mailer over and tape it that way.

WEB HOSTING

I’ve used Bluehost for a very long time and like them a lot.

WEB DESIGN

I’ve been using the Genesis Framework and several child themes from StudioPress.com. If you’re going to use WordPress, their ease of use and customization options can’t be beat.

CLOTHING

There are many places online and in real life to buy and sell your clothing. The only ones that I can recommend are eBay, etsy, ThredUp and Twice. Even then, your mileage varies. It all depends on how little you are willing to part with your items. At least eBay and etsy give you more control, even though their fees are getting out of hand.

Steer clear of Threadflip and Mercari. I don’t recommend them. Threadflip burns their sellers with outrageous fees and prices NWT couture for prices you’d find at Walmart (seriously, I wish I were joking). Look at all of their online reviews and heed this one before you consider them.

Mercari is more peer-to-peer and the peers I’ve interacted with literally asked me to sell items for $5 or less. Not worth anyone’s time for sure.

KIDS CLOTHING

Kidizen is by far my very favorite site and app to resell children’s and maternity clothing. However, there are others and mileage definitely varies.

Top rated customer service. Like new designer kids clothes for less

Adorable clothes at 75% off retail every day
