Single mom builds success through coding, reselling luxury goods

Cindy F. Cape

Bored during the pandemic and fully remote, Angel Hursey sold luxury items from her closet for extra money. That led to a venture that let her develop coding skills — a 100% online secondhand luxury store., an online luxury thrift store, started as a pandemic side hustle. In 2020, Hursey sold her Louis Vuitton handbags on resale sites Poshmark and Mecari to make extra money. Her online site launched in January 2021 and generated around $40,000 in annual profits its first year. 

Hursey, 32, graduated Thursday from Lansing Economic Area Partnership’s One and All March 2022 cohort, alongside Socialight Society owner Nyshell Lawrence, Neutral Minimalist Interior Design owner Banin Jafar and Data-Driven Decisions, L3C owner Ken Roubal to name a few.

“I am professional but I just needed more of the business mindset like, ‘OK, this is growing bigger beyond me because it’s growing more rapidly,'” she said. “More of the financials, the cash flow and maybe expand into a brick and mortar since I am 100% online.”
