Our sourcing guide

The most exciting IRL sourcing event is coming up, and we want to make sure that you enjoy the most of your time inside the warehouse. On November 13th, at 12PM EST, we will host our second in person Sourcing event in our warehouse located in Eatontown, and we want to help you make the most of it! Learn what to expect, how to manage your time and hacks to explore our warehouse in NJ. Oh, and don't forget to mark your calendars!

You're invited to shop our warehouse IN PERSON.

Come ready to load up on everything from secondhand to premium labels. We've got it all.

1. Get there early - you want to be the first one to find your gems!

Ready to start sourcing in person? Of course we think all of our stuff is great, but if you want the best chance possible of scoring hard-to-find, one of a kind items, obviously being first in line will give you a huge leg up! But don't worry if you didn't find exactly what you were looking for; you can always order your favorite brands in bulk at helpsysource.com, anytime day or night.

2. Know what you are looking for ahead of the event

You know how they say not to go grocery shopping hungry? While we love aimless shopping trips as much as the next person, sourcing quality inventory requires a game plan. 

Know what kinds of brands your inventory needs refreshed on or what kinds of items your customers are always asking if you have in stock. We will give you a list of brands, and to save time, you can plan your journey inside the warehouse. In the wise words of one Miss Taylor Allison Swift, "if you fail to plan, you plan to fail."

3. Be open to surprises while sourcing

You know your community best; if they are on the cutting edge and want nothing but low-rise jeans and platform sneakers, you know that. If they are terrified by the reemergence of Y2K fashions, stock up on skinny jeans and riding boots. We welcome and celebrate all styles here; a diversity of self-expression makes the fashion world go round. Come prepared with a list of what your top-selling items have historically been, but look for variations on that theme to expand your inventory at our Posh N Sip.

4. Participate in our giveaways and make some new friends!

You didn't think we'd host a party without some gift bags, did you? We will be doing several giveaways during the event that include: 

  • $100 Gift Card
  • Exclusive 25% off your order on helpsysource.com
  • $50 Gift Card drawing for all who share about the Posh and Sip in their stories

This event is supposed to be tons of fun, so don't hesitate to bring a friend or try and make some new ones while sourcing in person. We think that community is one of the best parts of reselling, and we encourage folks to find their new second-hand bestie! Don't be afraid to ask around to fellow resellers and see what they think about that gem you just found. 

We know it can feel like a mad dash but if we at Helpsy know anything, it's that there is more than enough secondhand clothing to go around. We are all part of this community working to give clothes new homes, and we couldn't be more excited to welcome you to the warehouse.

5. Don't worry about carrying out your finds

Sourcing inventory is all fun and games until you get to checkout and have to load everything into your car. We want to make the days of you wrestling an armful of your best second hand finds out of your trunk a thing of the past. We're here to simplify your life, not make it more complicated. Our amazing warehouse team can ship your order to your home, office, or warehouse for a flat fee, so all you've got to do is list the items and get ready to go on a packing frenzy as they fly off your shelves. Oh and we love to use recycled boxes to make sure that our shipping operations are as sustainable as possible. We won't tell if you re-use the box too, in fact we kind of encourage it. Saving money on packaging and creating less waste is what we like to call a win-win.

We won't judge you for wanting to make sure that amazing pair of shoes goes back with you as a personal buy, or if you walk out wearing your new find.

6. Bonus Sourcing Tip: Helpsy Studios Tour

Ever wanted to switch up your studio setup? We've got an industrial sized corner all set up that you can tour to see if you'd want to host your own live sale at our warehouse! We provide the lighting, backdrop, props, and other listing photo necessities, all you need is your camera and an arm full of new Helpsy finds and a camera ready makeup to make the most of this space that is perfect for doing fun and fast live sales. We will be touring the space at the Posh N Sip and you definitely won't want to miss out on this opportunity.
