The Polite Way to Re-Posh

One of my favorite things about shopping on Poshmark is Re-Poshing!

I know, I know, there should be a dictionary explaining all the Posh terms! For those who are new to this… “Re-Poshing” is when you resell something that you purchased on Poshmark.

This can be tricky and there is certainly an unspoken etiquette guideline.
