One of the oddest acronyms you run across when you first join Poshmark is PFF.
There was probably a moment early on when someone commented in your closet “Hey PFF!” leaving you bewildered. It was even MORE confusing after you found out what it meant!
“This person thinks we are Posh Friends Forever? What?? What do I need to do?”
For the new Posher, rest easy, it’s mostly a term of endearment. But if you have been around a while and have built these unique online friendships, it can be so much more. They become your sounding board, your support system, and your biggest cheerleader! I mean who else is going to understand the world of Poshmark?
There have been a few changes lately with parties that we haven’t discussed yet so it’s time for a Poshmark Party Update!
Hosting a Poshmark party is a coveted spot and one of the biggest honors you can receive on Poshmark.
I was fortunate to be able to Host this past Monday’s “Cold Weather Vibes” and I must say that the experience was slightly different from past hosting opportunities. I have previously shared a Step by Step Guide to Hosting a Poshmark Party…
So what was different this time?
Disclaimer: When writing this post, I had to consult the internet on whether the correct word was “relist” or “re-list” but could not find a conclusive answer. I even consulted 2 teacher friends and my mother (who is a badge carrying member of the grammar police) and received three different opinions. SO, for the sake of the word not looking like realist or relish, I have decided to include the hyphen.
Let’s carry on…
The word RE-LIST can spark anger and disappointment.
As in: “UGH, I am going to have to re-list this item!”
Re-listing on Poshmark means that you have to delete your original listing that has so many LIKES and start the process all over by listing it again This can be even more painful and gut wrenching if it was a former HOST PICK.
You would NEVER want delete this item just to list it again, right?… but sometimes you feel that it is necessary if the listing somehow has been compromised.
Examples of ways a listing can potentially become “compromised”:
I have never been so excited to host a party on Poshmark!
This party is going to be held the evening of Tuesday, May 24, 2016.
But the absolute BEST part is who I get to co-host with…

Editor’s Note: The following is my opinion, from what I have seen, heard, and personally experienced and is not based on fact.
There are several major milestones for a Poshmark Closet. Co-Hosting a Party, becoming a Suggested User, and receiving a PM Editor Share to name a few. One of the very first ones that is “easiest” to achieve receiving coveted HOST PICKS.
“What are Host Picks?” you might be asking. Host Picking is the main function of a party Co-Host.
Here is how it works
When asked to Co-Host a party, you are given the task of curating the Host Pick Showroom. You and the other hosts each get to choose 50-100 items each by “sharing” them during a Posh Party. As they are shared, they are specially showcased in the Host Pick tab of the party. Shoppers go to this area to see the best of the best and to see items that best represent the theme. Browsers looking for inspiration may search this section to find new closet to follow. Meanwhile, the Hosts get to prove that they have an eye for style. That, in a nutshell, is a Host Pick. Read more
