Reselling During the Coronavirus Pandemic

Hunting for Vintage

First, my condolences to those who have suffered during this pandemic due to the loss of a loved one, personal illness or financial loss. I have lived a good many decades and have never experienced anything like this before. It feels like we’ve entered “The Twilight Zone.” Last night my husband and I went out to dinner just to feel normal. It was good to see people sitting at the outdoor tables enjoying a cup of coffee or a glass of wine.

This morning I got to thinking that for those of us who resell things (vintage or not), how will this pandemic affect our businesses? Here’s what I’ve come up with…

Sourcing Could Become More Difficult

My county has a mandatory cancellation of gatherings over 1000 people and is recommending canceling gatherings over 250 people. So my local monthly flea market is canceled this Saturday. I was planning on…

Top 10 Tips for Shopping on Depop:

Oh Lucy Style

Shopping on Depop can be a bit of a minefield. It’s one of my favourite places to find individual and unique clothing items, whilst also reducing your contact with the fast fashion industry. However, getting that perfect piece for your clothing collection can be a struggle.

When you first log onto the site you suddenly have about 50 accounts follow you, despite the fact you haven’t yet liked an item, let alone put one up for sale. Then, it can feel like endlessly looking through the back of someone’s cupboard if you don’t search correctly. And when you finally find something you like, the account is selling the secondhand top for £39.99. So to help you navigate and sort the crap from the cracking, here are my top tips.

1. Search for items by account. Okay, so you aren’t looking for a specific item, but want more of a ‘browsing…

Sourcing and Reselling During a Pandemic

New England Finds and Fancies

I thought I would do an update on how my sourcing/selling is doing during this global pandemic where we are at home if we can be. I can’t source for eBay in my usual places so I have been sourcing differently with mixed results. My eBay sales have been steady through this, mostly from items that were sourced previously. I have sourced items in two different ways during this situation. Three times I have bought items on eBay to flip. The first purchase was a pair of Lenci dolls. I spent $35 all in for two 18″ cloth Lenci fairy tale dolls. One is a Little Red Riding Hood doll and the other is a Pinocchio doll. So far I have only put up the Little Red Riding Hood doll and she has not sold.


I have posted previously about the mystery box of vintage doll clothes that I bought…

Reselling as a Stay at Home Mom


Something I do to stay busy and bring in a little extra income as a stay at home mom is reselling. Reselling is taking things you have around your house, or when you buy used clothes, shoes, or home decor and list them for sale online, once the items sell, you ship them out. This is something that doesn’t have to have “set” hours, unless you want it to. It’s something that you can make work into your schedule instead of fitting your life into a work schedule, unless you want to.

This is the ultimate “side hustle” if you ask me. I am able to fully decide how busy or not busy I am. I am able to decide when I am in “mommy mode” and when I am in “mother hustler mode” each day. This gives me the freedom to make the decisions about how my day goes…
