I'm going to keep this short and sweet. ALL items have been purchased on Amazon. You can click on the links to bring you directly to the item and add to cart to save. If you don't have an Amazon Prime Membership - get one! You can't beat the free two day shipping, especially when you forget to add items to an order or think of something you need last minute! I bought the bare minimum to start in my opinion and that was my goal! I wanted to save any extra money and spend it on more inventory!
Here you go! :)
iPhone Tripod - TOTAL time saver. I didn't get this until 7 weeks into my business and I can't believe I didn't get it sooner. I have an iPhone and I believe it also works with Android.
Bluetooth Remote - Again - bought at the same time as the tripod and wish I did it sooner. As soon as you put the clothes on the mannequin (link below as well) you press a button and the picture is taken. 1 second. Can't beat it. Time is money.
Storage Bags - These are inexpensive and store your clothes for traveling or even just at home. You can even cover the clothes while on hangers and hanging.
Shopping Bags - For in home shoppers. These are simple but they are good size and the price is right.
6x9 Poly Mailers - I fit 1 pair of leggings or kids clothes in these. Fits perfectly.
10x13 Poly Mailers - You can use these for multiple items.
Hair Ties - I wrap one of these hairties around my business card and include in my delivery as a little something extra for my customers. You would be surprised how many people comment on getting it!
Dymo LabelWriter 4XL - Prints in seconds. Worth the money in my opinion.
Labels for Dymo - Worth having the rolls on back up. I ran out once without any on hand and had items to ship. This four pack is the best price per roll I could find!
Mannequin - I got size 2-4 because I read how XXS doesn't fit on anything bigger (it's very snug on this size). For larger sizes I use chip clips to hold clothing up. Some people I know got a small and large mannequin but so far I use just the one.
QuickBooks - I bought and installed and plan to use when I can have some time to learn it! 😂
Coat Check Numbers - For live sales. Hooks on hanger and is plastic (durable). Does the job!
Lighting Kit - I know you are debating it but do it. It makes a huge difference and saves you time from people asking is the color black or blue or completely bypassing an item without asking because they don't want to take the time to ask. Trust me here.
Ok - that's my list. Plus hangers at Costco - 35 for $9.99. (I love Costco)! You can go over the top with decor and extras but I kept it simple to start! I hope that helps you get started confidently and save you time price shopping so you can spend the time building your business! Good luck! 💗
