It’s Poshmark’s GOLDEN Birthday!
It has been 6 years since Poshmark first began… time flies, huh?
I was not among the first.
Back in 2011, I was using my Blackberry Pearl… then my Blackberry Curve, and then my amazing Blackberry Bold!
I didn’t get an iPhone until 2014. Heck, I’m still using my 5s.
This is how my Poshmark story started…
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?
It’s the Gray Asparagus’s Two Year Anniversary!
It’s been TWO YEARS?
I cannot believe that TWO YEARS have passed since launching The Gray Asparagus.
Let’s back up…
I started keeping a diary at the age of seven. It held the basic secrets of a seven-year old… who I thought was cute and who my current best friend was. One day I found out that my brother had read my entire diary! In a panic, I took out an eraser and erased the contents… I erased all the words I had written (in pencil, of course) as if this too could erase the words from my brother’s memory. It didn’t, but life went on.
Sharing makes the Poshmark world go ’round!
Love it or hate it- it is part of what keeps Poshmark from being just another online retailer. It allows us to see listings we wouldn’t normally see, helps us make sales we may not otherwise have, AND it connects us to each other. I am willing to bet that you probably first stumbled across a PFF or two because of a share.
Sure, we could go back and forth about the different ways to share and what gives you the highest ROI (return on investment).
But that’s not why I am writing this today… Today I am talking about what is going on Tuesday, December 6th, 2016
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…
I will be teaming up with the popular fashion blogger
She gives amazing advice on how to stay fashionably appropriate at work… just check out her Instagram HERE.
And, of course, her Poshmark closet CubicleChic.
Also joining us is Lisa from the amazing Poshmark Closet
Believe me, her closet really IS fabulous! You can check out her Insta Style HERE.
I guess you can see why I am so excited… However, there is ONE problem…
I just received the most important Poshmark Party detail!
Our theme for the night of Friday, January 22, 2016 is….
CLASSIC CHIC !!!
I am so excited about this theme, and I am ready to start searching closets for Host Picks!
But, what IS classic chic???
It’s that time again…
I will be hosting my 3rd Poshmark party on January 22, 2016!
I won’t go over all the details about hosting because I already have HERE.
Once I find out the theme I will update everyone and finalize my host pick selections.
Wondering how to get a host pick, or what that even means??? Click HERE to read my past post about that…
I will say, when you post a “party announcement” in your closet, you get hundreds (if not thousands) of closet suggestions. It is incredibly difficult to go through every single one.
SO, if you are reading this post and you would like for me to look through your closet… Read more
