Poshmark Canada Turns Two, a Report by Poshmark

Today we’re celebrating the two year anniversary of Poshmark Canada! With buyers, sellers, secondhand-lovers, and entrepreneurs alike, our thriving community has grown to over 2.5 million Canadians across the country who have listed nearly half a billion dollars worth of inventory. Since we launched in May 2019, we have rerouted over 200k pounds from landfills in jeans alone1, extending the lifespan of the items we own and reducing our environmental impact, while supporting a new generation of entrepreneurs and shoppers.

So cheers to all of you who help make Poshmark a fun and social place where everyone can thrive.

From Vancouver to Yellowknife and back down to Toronto, the Poshmark Canada community is proudly represented across all 13 provinces and territories.

Poshmark is fuelled by a vibrant community that loves to connect, share, and support one another, making selling and shopping simple, social, and fun.

Community is the heart and soul of Poshmark. People don’t just come to buy and sell—they also come to find human connection, especially in light of the past year. In a time where many were faced with changes and challenges, one thing remained constant: the Poshmark community and the friendships, mentorship opportunities, and interactions you virtually had with one another.

From women’s, men’s, kids, and pets to home decor, accessories, beauty, and more—Poshmark has become your one-stop-shop for a range of new and secondhand items.

Our community ranges from casual sellers, frequent shoppers, secondhand enthusiasts, side hustlers, and even full-fledged business owners.

Happy 2 years to our growing community of buyers and sellers. We wouldn’t be where we are today without your passion, determination, and hustle!

Poshmark Canada Turns One, a Report by Poshmark

Since launching in May 2019, Poshmark has built a vibrant community of over one million Canadians across the country who’ve collectively listed over C$100M worth of inventory. The Poshmark Canada community is creating inspiring side-hustles and full-fledged businesses, while also helping to accelerate the circular economy.

Meet some of the Seller Stylists powering Poshmark Canada.

Meet Lora, a fashion-lover since a young teen, who has made her passion her everyday by dabbling in luxury resale. After getting her start the day Poshmark launched in Canada, Lora has maintained a closet filled with new and pre-loved luxury handbags—most notably, her favourite sale of a black YSL Large College bag. 

Lora’s #PoshTip for reselling designer items: 
Photos! Clear images that accurately display the item say a thousand words, so you don’t have to! This leads to less questions, and buyers are able to make more confident purchase decisions.”

Goal for year two:
“As we adapt and navigate through 2020, I hope to inspire others to use the Poshmark platform as an opportunity to generate supplemental income from home.” 

Side-hustling on Poshmark since August 2019, Vivian loves the creative process of styling and shooting outfits for her listings and giving people that “gotta have it” moment when shopping her closet. 

Vivian’s #PoshTip for turning Poshmark into a side hustle: 
Great communication! Include as much info as possible regarding size, quality, and feel of the garment (measurements are the BEST thing you can include)! This will save you plenty of time later by not having to go back into your inventory to reinspect or measure an item.” 

Goal for year two:
“Connect with more Canadian Poshers and inspire more people to shop second hand. Also, to hit 1,000 listings!”

Selling on Poshmark since the Canada launch, Mayette has taken her business from a fun side-hustle to a full-time job. She has learned to stay organized by “establishing a routine that is easy and comfortable for me to follow.” 

Mayette’s #PoshTips for taking the plunge into full-time Poshing: 
“Keep yourself updated on the current fashion trends. Know what sells, when it sells,  how much it sells for, and where to get this inventory at the lowest possible costs so you can get the best margins.” 

Goal for year two:
“Double my sales and add more luxury items to my closet!” 

Meet Sanela, an avid-thrifter who’s constantly on the hunt for unique vintage pieces. Whether she’s on the lookout for “romantic pieces with an edgy touch” or “detail and authenticity,” Sanela has been reselling vintage clothing on Poshmark since day one. Her favourite flip this year? A vintage Celine cross-body bag.

Sanela’s #PoshTip for navigating a thrift store:
Use your time wisely. When thrifting, I first quickly make my way through the store and see if there are any gems that will catch my eye. I’m looking for unique patterns, prints, and colours. After that, if I have the time, I will go back through the aisles one more time.”

Goal for year two:
“Grow and refine the style of my closet to be more curated with unique vintage items and modern basics.”
