Getting creative with her finances, Sherry took her bargain hunting skills as a way to start a side hustle.
How did you get started?
My love affair with bargain hunting at places like flea markets and garage sales started early. Eventually it became obvious that I was really good at it. And I love fashion – I actually got my undergraduate degree in Fashion Design, and although I didn’t stay in the industry, I never lost my passion for gorgeous clothing nor my belief that dressing fabulously need not break the bank.
My transition from shopper to vendor happened somewhat organically. I’d established a reputation for being a savvy shopper with a talent for finding the amazing things, and even had a couple instances where friends put me in the role of personal stylist. All it took was a major life change to push it from hobby to hustle.
