How I Thrift It: @CaliThriftQueen on Reselling, Fast Fashion, Environmental Justice

Eidah is a Los Angeles based reseller and small business owner. She operates Cali Thrift Queen, a woman-of-color owned secondhand online shop with storefronts on Poshmark, Mercari, and eBay. She’s been thrifting for many years and decided to take her thrifting skills to the next level and started reselling part-time during law school to declutter and offset school-related expenses.

In this episode, we chat about Eidah’s reselling tips, her passion for social justice issues, and how she uses her reselling journey to challenge the fast fashion industry and the idea that we constantly need the newest material things.
