In a Clutch
With over 25 years of retail buying and advertising experience within the fashion industry, Andrea Harrison started selling her son's outgrown clothing on eBay over 10 years ago. After only a few months of strong sales and positive feedback, she realized that she had a passion for finding designer, fashion forward items that sold quickly. In 2009, after Macy's, where she worked as a buyer, began centralizing operations to New York, Andrea decided to pursue her dream of starting her own business, launching In A Clutch. Today, In A Clutch is a successful online accessory and consignment store where customers worldwide benefit from her fashion skills and expertise and created a way for everyone to be able to afford great items for a fraction of the price. While her experience as a buyer helped her to navigate the day-to-day of operating a business, it's her entrepreneurial tenacity that's helped her grow her sales.
As a single mother, my favorite part about selling on eBay has been the flexibility and freedom it has given me to be there for my son and run my own business.
