Over the past year and a half I have been sourcing for my Poshmark closet on a weekly basis. I typically run across many of the same brands, and when doing my research have seen those brands oversaturate Poshmark and other platforms. Due to this, I typically pass on those items unless they are super cute. Today I went out sourcing with my mom and I kept finding the same brands as always and I started filtering my search a bit more. I noticed something when doing this, and that lightbulb went off in my head.
There are many brands on Poshmark that are oversaturated but even those brands have certain items that people will still pay good money for and are harder to find. I wanted to do some research tonight on the most common brands I run across here in West Columbia,SC. I also asked my Instagram followers to name some brands they see often and pass on, so I could include those in my research as well. Only 1 person replied with Liz Sport, so I have included this in my research.
Below the 20 clothing brands you see are what I find EVERY time I go out sourcing, next to those brands you will see the best items for those brands to source to resell on Poshmark. I figured this would be a great way to save time when out sourcing. If I know what items for each brands to look out for, then I will save time!
