I begun trying other platforms, and spent hours uploading photos of my “goods”, looking through other people’s wares, and selling and buying items as though I was running a business. But soon, I began running out of my “stock” of old and unworn clothes. I had to sell other things in order to shop!

That was when I started picking through Jason’s* vintage toy collection and Sofie’s wardrobe. Jason had amassed a huge collection of action figures, so I thought he wouldn’t notice. I selected some with damaged packaging, or those that I found ugly. For Sofie, she had a lot of fast fashion buys, and I just chose those I thought she had forgotten about or had no use for.
