complaints, etc… I get to focus on the fun part of reselling, buying awesome
stuff and getting paid for it!"

and sellers of consigned luxury goods together across all luxury categories in
an environment that ensures product authenticity, high volume, fast sales, and
superior service."

and saleshave steadily increased month over month. I willshift more
inventory to TRR given the positive results. I currently sell approx. $15,000
