I blame it on the emotional connection we make with clothes.
Sometimes it happens when I am putting on the piece to take a photo to list it… and I am reminded of its redeeming value.
“This sweater is sooooo soft.” Regardless that it’s hanging in my closet IN THREE OTHER COLORS.
Or most times when I am packing it up after it sells online.
“I had so much fun that night I wore this dress to my friend’s birthday dinner… maybe I should have kept it… I don’t have anything in red anymore… I wonder what would happen if I cancel this order?”
Then there is the rare occasion that I get all sentimental when sharing.
“Gosh, I loved these jeans, why hasn’t anyone bought them? Ok, I’m going to mark them as ‘not for sale’ and maybe wear them this weekend.”
So, I never actually have cancelled a sale, but I sure have regretted selling! The regret never lasts long because I have moved on to something else… a new purchase that someone else regrets selling to me.
Has this happened to YOU?
