If you have clothes to sell that are a step up from Goodwill, you should try Poshmark before selling them at places like Plato’s Closet or Uptown Cheapskate. Poshmark is an app that allows you to list your items free, and just charges a 20 percent commission if/when you get a buyer. It even provides you with a prepaid shipping label, and you can withdraw your payment at any time.

Poshmark is so much easier than eBay, and you’re likely to get a better price with a nationwide customer base.

It’s also a great place to find deals as a buyer, and Poshmark stands behind every order to make sure you’re happy with the product and the process. Download the app or visit www.poshmark.com to get started.

WHAT’S TRENDY

One of the more productive trends over the past few years has been brands with a purpose, like TOMS or Warby Parker who donate a pair of shoes or eyeglasses for every pair they sell. Another good-hearted brand that I found recently is Punjammies. It sells beautiful cotton pajamas made in India by women transitioning out of forced prostitution, providing a livelihood for them and their families.

The prints are absolutely beautiful, and they have a special collection using traditional kalamkari Indian block print process that is especially stunning. Prices start around $25 at punjammies.com.

WHAT’S NEW

I don’t know about you, but I can’t wait until Farmhaus Burger on Broad Street opens up. The specialty burger restaurant is playing it pretty coy on Facebook as far as when it’ll open and what it’ll serve, but rumor has it that it will be opening at the end of the month or in early March.

Farmhaus is the brainchild of Sean Wight, the owner of Frog Hollow Tavern just down the street, and will serve burgers made with beef from a South Carolina farmer and milkshakes made with local milk.
