If you consider yourself a fashionista, then you are probably well aware of the company, Poshmark. Poshmark is a digital marketplace where you can buy and sell new or used clothing, shoes and accessories. One woman made $15,000 by cleaning out her closet and posting the items on the site. That makes for a sweeeet side hustle.
According to a recent article quoting Poshmark’s press release, the site carries over 75 million items and 5,000 brands and 1 in 30 women in America sell on Poshmark. Since it’s launch in 2011, the company has grown to over 4 million sellers.
