Black Women In Resale was launched in January 2021. This initiative spearheaded by Keren Duclosel of Thrifting Atlanta and myself is the culmination of months of community building with fellow black resellers. Black Women In Resale seeks to amplify the voices and needs of black women resellers. It will provide a platform to educate, provide resources and bring together a community of entrepreneurs. We invite to learn more about this community.
In 2014, Ayana founded the Facebook Group, Thrifting Divas, to allow women to showcase their love for secondhand shopping.
Today, Thrifting Divas has become one of the most amazing communities of secondhand fashion enthusiasts on Facebook and has grown to over 78K members and expanding daily.
In 2020, during one of the most tumultuous economic downturns in this country, Ayana pivoted her platform to allow women to sell via Facebook LIVEs, providing an opportunity for women to earn additional income during financial hardship.
As a result of their initial successes with Facebook LIVEs, many women transitioned their love for thrifting and reselling into full and part-time businesses.
As Facebook LIVEs propelled their success, Thrifting Divas became one of the best communities to learn how to start a resale business and leverage the Facebook platform to earn 6-figures reselling.
