The Recessionista Interviews Brad Goreski on Style and eBay Selling
Celebrity stylist and reality TV star Brad Goreski has a brand new bag. Literally, he’s working with eBay to offer tips on style while helping eBay sellers clear out their closets and recoup their shopping costs by reselling their items, and perhaps buying new fashions at the same time. Last week I reported on Brad’s new relationship with eBay as one of the celebrities working on the eBay Chic Squad. Since then, I’ve had the chance to interview Brad and get a bit more information about his work with eBay and current fashion trends. Following is my interview with the charming Mr. Brad Goreski.
Q.) I’ve been selling on eBay for years, great way to clean out the closet. Why did you form Chic Squad now, at this particular time?
A.) The Chic Squad is a group of fashion and celebrity stylists and top eBay sellers who are inspiring selling on eBay. We’re offering advice on what to sell and how to sell, so that style lovers can free up closet space and cash to buy more fashion!
Q.) Tell me about the simplified selling experience? Are these new tools on eBay?
A.) The ebay mobile app makes selling so much easier with 4 simple steps: Script, Shoot, Price and List. Check out the videos I made that walk you through the new, simplified selling experience, at eBay.com/sellingstyle. There are also tons of tips and tricks available on the site to help people get started figuring out their own selling style.

A.) My lips are sealed…but I will have very good news soon.
Watch this space! I’m wicked curious about what is going on with Brad’s TV show. Clearly he has come a long way since he went to NYC for Fashion Week with Rachel Zoe and ended up sharing a hotel room and bed with another stylist because there was no reservation for him made by team Zoe.
