Bread and butter: Brands or items that are solid, reliable sellers but don't turn a high profit. Aka basic brands aka "mall brands".
Mall Brands: Anything you can find in a mall or an outlet shopping center. Think H & M, Forever 21, J Crew, DKNY, Old Navy, Gap, Banana Republic, American Eagle Outfitters, Aeropostale, LOFT, etc.
Hard Goods: Broad range of products, including furniture, appliances, tools, electronics, jewelry, and sporting goods.
Soft Goods: Apparel, bedding, linens.
VSCO / VSCO Girl: One of the newest trends in looks. Lifestyle trend comes from the name of a photo-editing app. The name comes from the VSCO editing app, which is used for its filters that create a consistent social media aesthetic. Swap a crop top for an oversized shirt or sweatshirt.
The Bins: AKA Goodwill Outlets or Clearance centers. A place where clothes are literally piled into big blue bins which you can dig through. Pay by the pound for all your finds.
Bad Buy: Something you bought and isn't selling. It could have been bought for too high of a price to make a profit or something you bought that doesn't sell for a very long time, if ever.
Deathpile / Death Pile: Really, just unlisted inventory. But it's affectionately called a deathpile on social media. For the resellers who source a lot, the amount of inventory piles up and doesn't get listed, hence deathpile. For a more positive spin, call it a money pile!
Stale: A listing or product that is just sitting with no action and not selling. Old.
Paying Up: When you pay a higher dollar amount for something. If your COG is $5 and under, for example, then paying $10 for a high value item would be considering paying up.
Dress Form: Sort of like a mannequin, but without a head or arms - generally just a torso and it comes with a stand.
Flat Lay: Style of photographing items in which a "scene" is created - showing more than just the item for sale. Think Instagram, Pinterest, Etsy. Literally lay your item on a flat surface, add a few pieces of decor or accessories and boom, flat lay. Alternatively, a flat lay can be just the item of clothing with no additional accessories or decor.
