When I was approached by Kim from Flaunt Fashion Library to host a blogger closet sale, I immediately said YES! Being a part of the previous Shop the Blogger Closet sale was an awesome experience, so I’ve been wanting to plan a follow-up sale for a long time now. The sale was a wonderful afternoon of selling, mingling, cupcake eating, and selfie-taking! I learned a lot after throwing two closet sales and wanted to share some tips on how to execute a successful sale for your sellers, vendors, and customers.
I’m going through another I’m-getting-rid-of-my-entire-closet crisis and feeling a big closet cleanse is in the works. Perfect timing, because I’m going to be a seller in the next Shop the Blogger Closet Sale this Sunday!
I shopped the Plenty Warehouse Sale this past Thursday night and got a sneak peek of the goods on sale this Easter long weekend. I remember 5 years ago when the sale was at a much smaller space on what is now Brassneck Brewery on Main Street; now, the sale sprawls over 20,000 square feet at the Vancouver Convention Centre, jam packed with racks of heavily discounted clothes, shoes, purses, and accessories. So, like a kid in a candy store, I flipped through each rack, table, and bin, getting the most of the calm before the madness prior to the sale.
