My Favorite Brands to Sell on Poshmark

      There are tons of excellent brands to sell on Poshmark, and to be honest, some will really surprise you. I tend to stay away from the luxury products game because you have to put in a whole     lot more money for inventory, and you risk losing more. I like the good quality, decent turnaround brands, even some basic mall brands. My favorite place to source is the Goodwill Outlet – aka the bins. It’s cheap, and it’s fun! Okay. Fun is subjective. I think it’s fun, but, if you don’t like digging and occasionally seeing people being ridiculously rude at new bins, you might not love it. It’s definitely the most cost effective though. If you’re just starting, I would really say you should try the bins because mistakes are MUCH less of a mistake when you pay next to nothing for your items.


  1. BKE – Lots of brands sold at Buckle do fairly well on Poshmark, and these jeans are usually at least a $30 turnaround.
  2. Big Star – These sell for around the same price point as the BKE jeans above.
  3. Miss Me – These always go for a good bit, more when the back pockets are overly decorated.
  4. American Eagle – These jeans move, not for a ton, but you’re looking at $18 to $25 for a pair, and that’s a decent turnaround if you’re sourcing at the bins.


  1. Clarks – I love selling these shoes, especially when I find them pretty often in good condition at the Goodwill Outlet aka “the bins.” These sell pretty consistently for between $25 to $35.
  2. Olukai – These are a great brand and endure really well over time. They sell consistently for $25 to $45 (even kids!)
  3. Hoka – Hoka sneakers really hold their value, and these sell regularly for $40-$80 depending on condition and color way. I LOVE finding these at the bins.
  4. UGG – boots and flip flops – Uggs do fairly well all around and usually for a decent amount as long as you can get them for the right price.
  5. Crocs – but mostly at bins prices. Crocs almost ALWAYS sell, but depending on style, not for a ton of money. I wouldn’t pay up for many of them unless you’ve done your research and know what you’re looking at.
  6. Teva – I don’t have a ton of experience with these, but I have sold one pair sourced at the bins. …moved in a week or two and for upward of $30. They were men’s hiking/kayaking closed toe sandal style. I’ve heard that these can be great, and they moved well for me.
  7. Minnetonka – The calf/knee height boots with the fringe on them go quickly and for at least $30 in good condition. I’ve picked these up at the bins twice, and they go within a week or two. Both were great transactions. I do have a pair of unlisted flip flops of the same brand, but I can’t comment on if they’ll move or not as they aren’t listed yet.
  8. Sperry – but ONLY the funky ones – Sperry boat shoes move really well if you find the ones with the glittery effects and sequins. Funky colors like pinks and teals tend to move in these types of shoes, at least in our store.
  9. Nocona – cowboy boots. I’ve found these once. They were vintage, and the bottoms were definitely somewhat worn, and I turned them around from $8.99 to $50. It was a welcome flip.


  1. Calvin Klein – These career type dresses have a very big following. If you find these on super clearance at a Marshall’s or TJ Maxx type store, these are totally worth picking up (if they’re cheap enough.) If new with tags, we have turned these dresses around repeatedly for $25 to $40. Even in excellent condition, they are worthy of a pick up and quick search.
  2. Strasburg – These kids dresses have a HUGE following as well. Vintage to new, Strasburg dresses are definitely worth picking up at thrift prices. They generally have hand embroidery and smocking that makes the Southern Mamas swoon.


  1. Patagonia – The Better Sweater line and fleeces from Patagonia as well as cold weather pants and clothing do very well. They generally go for some pretty decent money too.
  2. The North Face – This brand has always been pretty great, but their fleeces do particularly well. However, they used to be worth quite a bit more than they are now, so just keep that in mind. You’ll sell North Face, but you won’t sell it for huge money.


  1. Talbot’s – I know this is a fairly saturated brand, and it doesn’t go for all that much. But, when you source from the bins, totally worth it. Talbot’s moves depending on style and season.
  2. LOFT – Some people pass on LOFT because it’s saturated. But, for our business model, LOFT has always moved, and I’ve never had any issues with the transactions or the people who like LOFT. I’ve sold their shorts, tops, pants and skirts. All have done great for us.
  3. Lilly Pulitzer – Basically anything from this brand is worth it. The more loud and bright prints are generally worth a little bit more. Pick up if the thrift price is not overly elevated. Bigger sizes are always  better.


This is, in no way, an exhaustive list of great brands to sell. It’s somewhere to start though, especially if you’re just beginning. Pay attention to styles, colors and seasons. I prefer to list different seasons and holidays year round, but there is something to be said for listing Christmas stuff in November and other holidays like that. In season, items generally command a slightly higher price, but they can still sell year round.

10 Poshmark Tips from a Year of Selling

*this post contains affiliate links*

My best friend has a love affair with thrift stores. She loves everything about them and will spend hours searching through every item to leave with the best deals. I started selling on ebay a few years back, and we joked about reselling as a business for a while. Then, one day, I said “let’s do it. If you buy stuff, I’ll list it.” Of course, I meant it, but I also assumed we were just still talking. We were not. She started dropping off boxes of stuff to me at work, and it was list and sell or be crushed by the mountains of name brand clothing. The rest is history, so we began this whole selling on poshmark thing.

1. The more you list, the more you sell. Yes, you should list consistently most days of the week if possible, but I’d also say you should put up more in the beginning. If I had to do it all over, I’d probably try to get up at least 20 in the first week and do that consistently until I’m at 100 items.

2. Share your closet as often as possible. Because of Poshmark’s algorithm, the more you share, the more your items are at the forefront of people’s brand searches. We use Superposher to share our items and relist, and I’ve never been more happy to spend $40 per month in my life. This has saved me SO much time and gotten me many more sales than if I had to just share our closet myself over and over. However, I would probably wait to start your Superposher trial until you have at least 100 to 150 items in your store because having less than that just won’t lead to as many sales. This is our SuperPosher referral link if you want to get $10 off your first month:

3. Your pictures need to be awesome. This is super easy to accomplish, even without a camera. I use my iPhone. Use a plain white background, and edit your pictures, so that your colors are true to the item. I use PhotoRoom, and yes, I actually pay the monthly fee for it. It’s been super helpful, and having the pro version removes the watermark and gives you more options when cutting out your background. Plus, it’s not that expensive, and it’s a tax deductible business expense. If you’re serious about selling on Poshmark, it’s best to take on some minimal expenses in order to make your closet stand out.

4. Decide on a storage system. I started out with diaper boxes, but now, I use clear plastic totes that I bought at Big Lots. I also found these on Amazon that are actually a better deal than I got at Big Lots I tape a number to the front of the tote (1 through 16 so far) and track what item goes into which tote in a spreadsheet. Why a spreadsheet? ..because you can put a row in alphabetical order. I put my sheet into alphabetical order by brand, so that I can more quickly find which box I stored the item that has sold.

5. Include measurements on all adult clothing. I’ve only had to go back and measure one or two kids’ clothing items, but it’s always best to include measurements for adult clothing. I include waist, inseam and length for shorts and pants,  and I include shoulder to hem length and armpit to armpit measurements for shirts and dresses.

6. Buy as cheaply as possible. We thrift everything and sell things from our own closets when we get tired of gently used items that are still in good condition. We also get things for free from friends and family when they’re looking to get rid of items. Our major source is shopping the bins. You can’t beat $1.49 a pound for clothing.

7. Use the free priority shipping supplies from the post office. You can order them for free and have them delivered right to your door, so you never run out. For Poshmark, you can use any Priority shipping supplies including flat rate envelopes and boxes.

8. Double bag items when you ship. I use these clear polybags for each item with a “thank you” sticker and then inside the priority shipping envelope or box. Putting your items in a clear polybag first will keep them clean and dry if there are any mishaps during shipping.

9. Track all of your expenses, and keep your receipts organized. I keep a current supply spreadsheet with the date, description and amount I paid for each business supply I bought. Things in this category generally include: shipping tape, polybags, “thank you” stickers, pens, printer, laptop, printer ink, etc.

10. For the love of God, make your items look presentable. My items are always clean and de-wrinkled before I start taking pictures. This clothing steamer is much easier to use than an iron. Nothing makes your closet look worse than your items just thrown on a bed or floor haphazardly. Make sure you always disclose any flaws in your items as well, including but not limited to stains, rips, tears, pulled threads, missing buttons, etc.

Selling on Poshmark is not for the faint of heart, but it’s a lot of fun. You can definitely make some good money if you are consistent and follow these steps.
