Hello! My name is Amanda Manera. I'm so glad you're here, and I'm excited to tell you a little bit about me and the inspiration for my site!
To start off, I am a part-time reseller running my own online reselling business, all while being a part-time Doctor of Physical Therapy. I found my love for reselling while I was in high school and working at my first job, Plato's Closet, when I turned 16.
During my 4 years at Plato's Closet, I was able to learn brands, styles, and current fashion trends - plus I scored a really sweet employee discount! Maybe a little too sweet, actually... Seriously, my coworkers would tell you a lot of my paycheck went right back to the store. Oops!
However, this sparked my love of shopping and selling on secondhand marketplaces like Poshmark, eBay, Mercari, Depop, and Vestiaire Collective. To this day, I continue to be an avid thrift store, buy-sell-trade, and garage sale shopper supporting sustainable fashion.
Plus, the skills I learned at Plato's Closet like identifying brand style numbers (such as Lululemon), authenticating designer items (like Michael Kors), and monitoring the ever-changing trends in fashion, have inspired many of my posts on this site.
I began selling online casually back in 2016. Since then, my business has grown exponentially! It has been exciting to see my hard work pay off and watch my dream of creating a not-so-small business come to life right in front of my eyes.
Plus, I get to have my cake and eat it too by pursuing both of my passions- helping others through promoting movement and doing my part in the sustainable fashion world.
As a bonus, my career as a Physical Therapist has also helped me with my love of frugality and finding a good deal, because it's what qualified me for the Lululemon Physical Therapist discount!
So take a look around my site, I know you'll learn a thing or two! And don't hesitate to reach out and contact us with any questions, comments, or suggestions.
Thanks for visiting the site and being a part of my journey!
