In high school, Kaahreena Ochoco was looking for ways to make extra money so she could hang out with friends. Little did she know, her fashion resale side hustle would become her career. 10 years later, Kaahreena now has a thriving Poshmark business and has used her earnings to open her own consignment store, Per Diem Thrifts, in The Dalles, OR.
Janae Smith started selling clothes on Poshmark as a side hustle during her spring break. The then-16-year-old pulled unwanted clothes from her and her mom’s closets and listed between 10 to 15 items a week. Today, Smith resells while attending community college and has made more than $7,000 in sales this year, which she uses for tuition, gas, and living expenses, as well as to get her nails or eyelashes done.
Poshmark launched the 88rising closet, which features over a dozen items from some of the label’s top artists, including BIBI, Milli, mxmtoon, NIKI, Rich Brian, Stephanie Poetri and Warren Hue. In its 11 years of existence, this is the first time the Poshmark has partnered with a music label.
Sellers Kaycie Morwood and Courtney Soberal both financed their weddings through selling on Poshmark. Kaycie got married in front of 120 friends and family in August 2021, using her Poshmark profits to pay for the $17,000 celebration, and Courtney financed her dream wedding in Hawaii by reselling thrifted pieces – contributing $10,000 in earnings towards her big day.
At first, Kaycie Morwood just wanted to get rid of her old clothes before starting college. But after studying trends and sellers’ strategies, she learned how to flip clothing from thrift stores and turn her casual side hustle into a business. Since launching her store in June 2016, Morwood has earned $30,000 on the platform. Last August, she spent $17,000 of them — plus a $2,000 gift from her parents — to cover her entire wedding.
