Download Now! Customer Survey Results, “Your Experiences Buying Vintage Online”

customer survey: your experiences buying vintage online

Last July I released the survey, “Your Experiences Shopping for Vintage Online”  to connect with the online vintage customer community and learn more about their thoughts, opinions and concerns behind shopping for vintage online. I gathered this information to give vintage sellers so that they could – based on their own analysis of results – make changes to their online shops and selling strategy to better serve #vintagelovers everywhere.

I was inspired to orchestrate this survey thanks to the suggestion of The Vintage Mistress. Founder Elizabeth was inspired to suggest her idea to me after I organized a survey for vintage sellers that I packaged here: The True Lives of Vintage Sellers: Daily Dilemmas & Doubts.

This survey was intended for the vintage customer and provided an anonymous forum for them to share how they feel about such touchy subjects as mannequin vs. model, pricing, presentation, description and seller-buyer communication.

I hope these results help YOU – the seller! – to better operate your businesses so that you can live a life you love and for the good of the world … keep on spreading #vintagelove.

Which is why, when HowAboutWe and Elle Magazine contacted me to experience the matchmaking services of famed dating columnist E. Jean Carroll, I said “yes!” without hesitation and full knowing that this was another step on my journey to inevitably meet “the one.”
