Pre-Loved Podcast is a weekly vintage fashion interview show, with guests you’ll want to go thrifting with! For more Pre-Loved Podcast, subscribe to our Patreon!
Today’s show is with Danielle Vermeer, recently the co-founder & CEO of a startup called Teleport, and you may also know her online as Goodwill Hunting – which is the name of her newsletter about resale and secondhand fashion.
An avid thrifter of 20+ years, Danielle has long been interested in the impact she could make at the intersections of fashion, tech, and sustainability. She recently took a leap from leading resale & circular fashion at Amazon to join Teleport as Co-founder & CEO. Teleport is an early stage startup where users post no-filter videos of their shoppable, thrifted outfits. Think if TikTok and Depop had a baby.
We chat about Danille’s story with secondhand, how she hasn’t purchased any new clothes for over 11 years, what she’s learned working to bring circular fashion to scale, and how we’re moving into a new era of resale. Plus so much more!
This episode is full of insights about the secondhand space, so let’s just dive right in!
