As both a seller & a shopper, I can vouch for the amazing things to be had via Instagram closet shopping. I've scored some AMAZING vintage pieces for much less than I would have spent elsewhere on sites such as Etsy or vintage focused boutiques. I've found it to be a much more (semi) profitable route than selling through Facebook groups where the appreciation towards certain items is not always found (for example: Misha Lulu or similar trendy labels & quality vintage toys & clothing). The ONE hang-up IS that capturing the color of items CAN be tricky if you don't capture them during the day in normal sunlight however I ran into that same hang-up when I used to take photos with my d-slr as well & sold on Facebook. Most shops will openly state if they used a filter to bring make the items color more true or to accentuate a flaw the item might have & they want to be seen. Not only is it great from a commercial aspect but as a community as well. My daughter is a member of a small group of moms who came together & started a pen pal club & I text frequently with multiple mothers I have met through selling on there! We support each others shops as well as each others families. Have your doubts but I am the biggest fan through & through!
