My aunt is Shaneen Huxham, a New York fashion designer of some repute. She designs gloves and handbags, mostly. She has a few samples from last year’s collections which she has neither the time nor the inclination to sell. So, my sister Lynsey, who was recently in New York, offered to do it for her.
Because of market forces and the exclusive tastes of her glitterati clients, Shaneen can’t sell the stuff in New York, so Lynsey’s thinking of selling it out here in Vancouver. How would you recommend selling it? We’ve come up with several options:
- Consignment stores: A good option, though labour intensive.
- eBay: Less work, but you could probably only sell a few items at a time for fear of saturating the market.
- Flea markets: A possibility, but how much does one expect to pay at flea markets? Where are the flea markets in Vancouver?
What do you think of those options? Any other thoughts?
