The Details on Retail: How to Think About Buying Inventory

5_25 Blog Recap

In case you missed it, or just need a refresher, our weekly live stream series, The Details on Retail covered some tips to keep in mind when buying inventory. The key? Thinking seasonally. You should prep your inventory by buying for the season ahead.

This benefits you and your boutique in many ways:
1. It gives you some organization around what to buy, and when
2. It allows you time to receive the inventory, photograph it, merchandise it, and tie the listing together with a great description

With summer just around the corner, we highly suggest building your inventory around seasonal items such as bathing suits, maxi dresses, wedges, shorts, dresses, etc.  –these are all items that customers are looking to add to their wardrobe for the upcoming season!

One of our current favorite Wholesale Portal Brands is Fashionomics. They’re listing tons of great items that are perfect to round out your summer inventory (and offer plus size options as well — score!)

Another added bonus of Poshmark’s Wholesale Portal? The quick turnaround from purchase to receival. All wholesale brands have their packs ready to go and ship out within 5 business days. Can you say amazing?
