When I was waiting for my first order of inventory to get to me, I was super impatient and could hardly wait to break into that box of beautiful clothing. I had to do something while waiting so I decided to get everything prepared and READY so that I could start selling immediately (that’s the fun part right?!) when my inventory did show up. With that being said, below is a list of items you may need to get ready to sell.
Please note they are optional and definitely not all needed however, I do recommend them.
