Can you provide a quick introduction of yourself?
Hi! I am Maddy and I am an 18 year old from a small town in Wisconsin, I am going to be a freshman in college this year studying marketing and fashion.
When did you start your business and why?
I started my business in august of 2020 because I wanted to get rid of some old clothes but I quickly fell in love with running this account and thrifting so it turned into more than that!
What type of products do you sell on your website?
I sell lingerie such as corsets, slip dresses, bodysuits, bras and bralettes, etc!
How do you use Thryft, and how has Thryft helped you run and/or grow your business?
I use thryft to post my products for customers to purchase before my drops or for them to purchase the items still available, I also use it to create coupon codes for my followers when I want to have a sale! I enjoy using it a lot and it’s a smooth and easy process, and the website looks so cute!
How has scaling your business been?
Scaling my business has been super fun because I get to interact with more customers and other accounts and that’s super fun for me!
How has your experience as a reseller been overall?
My overall reseller experience has been super fun and taught me a lot about how to run a business and market your brand. I struggled in the beginning with making sales but once I got past that it has been such a fun way to do work because it doesn’t even feel like work!
