New Ownership at iSOLD It Focused on Community Outreach

Professional reseller of quality items for 14 years, iSOLD It in the Shops at Potomac Valley has a new owner, one who is committed to giving back to the community and preserving the environment. “We help people to make money and keep items out of the landfill,” new owner Michelle Baldwin said.

Baldwin and her team do research to find the right ecommerce platform for each item. Then they take professional photos and write ad copy, all to achieve the best resale. Baldwin said they work with a wide range of items with a resale value of $50 and up, anything from Chanel shoes to tires. And individuals are not their only customers. Businesses sometimes bring in their overstock; iSOLD It recently resold 75 never-before-used laptops.

Supporting the community is very important to Baldwin. She urges school groups and other nonprofits to open an account with iSOLD It. Individuals can then bring in items to be resold and donate proceeds to their favorite nonprofit.
