As Their Suits and Stilettos Collect Dust, Employees Are Making Quick Cash Selling Old Office Clothes Online
When Robin Camarote attends a Zoom meeting, she no longer needs the heels, the blazer, or even the pants she used to wear to the office. So instead of letting these “business casual” staples idle in her closet, she’s selling them all online.
“I don’t see a scenario where I’m going to wear these clothes again,” says the 45-year-old management consultant.
Big clothing chains are struggling in the pandemic, but for Christina Hurtado, sales are booming.
Hurtado, a full-time nurse, sells clothing under the handle @glittermethod on resale site Poshmark, which connects buyers with sellers of new and used merchandise.
Shoppers have been scooping up athletic wear and swimwear from her, she said, and they can't seem to get enough of her Lululemon-branded clothes, which sell within hours or even minutes of being posted.
