If you’re seriously going to start selling on eBay, you need to invest in some equipment. A decent camera is essential – a phone camera generally won’t cut it. I’ve also found the the camera needs to be lightweight, heavier ones can be quite cumbersome.
Unless you can do all your photos during the day, make sure you get some white studio lights. A mannequin isn’t essential but good for showing clothes at their best.
I couldn’t run my store without my steamer! So many garments are delicate and hard to iron – a steamer takes just moments for them to look like new.
Now’s the time to look for bargain designer swimwear, vests and shorts in the secondhand shops. All the items that have been put by over the winter are now coming out onto the rails so grab the best bits while you can!
I’ve had a much more productive couple of days and bought plenty of fab items including these beauties:
In addition, I bought:
Sarah Pacini dress
Zadig & Voltaire jeans
Joyce Ridings cape
Susy Harper jacket
Margaret Howell men’s jumper
Hush leather top
Phase Eight coat (I don’t normally buy this brand but it’s a very nice coat!)
I’m delighted to have found these stunning (if a little high!) Sophia Webster shoes. I haven’t found a great pair of shoes for ages and it’s also a brand that I haven’t found secondhand before. Today I also found:
COS men’s top
COS dresses x 2
Max Mara dress and jacket
Sarah Pacini jumpers x 2
Susie Watson throw
The White Company Jumper
Uniqlo down gilet
Rohan Icepack gilet
So today makes up for yesterday and I’m feeling happy!
