Pre-Loved Podcast: Abby McLucas
Let’s talk about today’s guest -- today I’m speaking with Abby McLucas, the owner of Gift of Garb. Abby started selling on eBay in 2003, and opened her first Gift of Garb location in the Eagle Rock neighborhood of Los Angeles in 2014. Two years later, the shop moved to Silver Lake, and the newest location opened in Venice in August 2018.
Gift of Garb offers a hand-selected collection of high-end designer labels from recent seasons. We talk about the designer consignment process, starting and operating a small business, the transition from eBay to brick and mortar store, plus some very special pieces on today’s show. Thanks for listening, and let’s dive right in!
