selling my stuff at Carousell

Tuesday, October 06, 2015

Yup..I've taken the plunge. After years, I'm finally selling my old stuff!

It started in my small apartment back in Hiroshima when I was packing 4 years worth of clothes, books, accessories, magazines, soft toys, scarves..I realized that I could just sell them off and work with something new in the almari. Well, turned out I didn't have that much time - or passion - to take pictures of them, one by one and upload them to a website and advertise them.

Sounded like too much hassle to the then 24-year old me.

But now, say hello to Carousell!

I applaud whoever invented this app. It works with just your phone - take pictures of your stuff and instantly upload them, wherever you are. I find this concept brilliant.

One weekend, I found myself staring at my wardrobe thinking I could easily point which tops or pants or jackets I never wore anymore, and kicking myself for it. I should do something instead of just let them rot in there, untouched. (they bound to, sooner or later)

So I asked Shahrul to look after Rayyan while I do my thing - taking out the clothes and sorting them out in different plastic bags. I ended up with 4 different plastic bags which I asked Shahrul to give away to a charity centre we saw somewhere near our house, and the rest, to be sold at Carousell.

Those were the pieces I treasure the most - mostly bought in Japan and worn a few times during casual dates with Shahrul. They reminded me a lot of those times back then - selling them away is hard for me, but I hope their new owners will cherish them as much as I did.

So if you saw something you like at my page, do leave me a message for any inquiries - I'd be happy to nego with you!

What do I think of Carousell?

It's an easy way to do business - you can easily find someone to buy your stuff because there are a lot of potential buyers in there, mostly looking for cheap deals. Most items are second-hand pieces, so reviews are important - which is what Carousell is great for; they have positive, negative and neutral reviews for you to browse and decide. I like it because it's a straightforward system, even suggested to my junior who's selling her preloved Japan clothes too haha. Now, she's making it in Carousell more than I do T.T

Do visit and see if you like anything OK? :) InsyaAllah will be uploading more in future.

Items still available
